In this interview Amelia Armour, Partner at Amadeus Capital, explains the limitations of classical computers and what could be achieved by harnessing the greater computational power of quantum technology.

Amelia highlights how quantum computing has the potential to bring significant changes to the way that people work across various industries, including drug discovery, automobile manufacturing and the production of new materials.

The growing market for quantum computing presents exciting investment opportunities. Amelia shares what Amadeus looks for when backing new companies in the space, and focusses on two of our portfolio companies:

Nu Quantum, which is developing quantum technology that will be used in communications over very long distances. This technology will be vital in the cybersecurity sector, for example detecting whether communications have been intercepted.

River Lane, a quantum software company in our portfolio, developing algorithms and operating systems that will run on quantum computers.
