The world’s most promising quantum innovators.


Duality accepts the most promising early-stage quantum companies from all across the world to participate in its 12-month accelerator program, which is based in Chicago, Illinois.

Cohort 1 of Duality includes:

  • Axion Technologies, a Tallahassee, Florida–based company led by Carol Scarlett, is developing a quantum random number generator for high performance computing systems.
  • Great Lakes Crystal Technologies, an East Lansing, Michigan–based company led by Keith Evans, is developing a commercial manufacturing process for semiconductor-grade diamond materials for photonics, electronics, and quantum technology applications.
  • qBraid, a Hanover, New Hampshire–based company led by Kanav Setia, is developing a cloud-based platform for managed access to other quantum computing software and hardware.
  • QuantCAD, an Iowa City, Iowa–based company led by Michael Flatte, is developing simulation software for modelling noise and current in quantum devices such as high-resolution quantum sensors.
  • Quantopticon, a Guildford, United Kingdom–based company led by Mirella Koleva, is developing simulation software for designing and optimizing quantum optical devices.
  •, a Chicago, Illinois–based company led by Pranav Gokhale, is developing software that accelerates quantum computing applications by optimizing across the system stack from algorithms to control pulses.
