We reported in April about the University of Maryland’s (UMD) establishment of a Quantum Startup Foundry to help incubate quantum technology startups. This week they announced that professional services firm Ernst & Young (EY) has joined as the first founding partner. As part of their activities, EY will support programs that connect the virtual and physical resources needed to support quantum entrepreneurs and startups as well as provide insight, mentorship, customer and investor introductions and other services to companies associated with the Quantum Startup Foundry. Additional information about this is available in a news release published by the University of Maryland and located here.
