In-Q-Tel invested in D-Wave Systems,

Jeff Bezos and the U.S. intelligence community are among those betting that quantum computing will lead to revolutionary new computing power. Quantum computing company D-Wave announced a $30 million round of funding on Thursday that includes investments by Bezos’ Bezos Expeditions and U.S. intelligence community venture arm In-Q-Tel.
D-Wave, founded in 1999, last year announced the D-Wave One, which the company has called “the first commercially available quantum computer.” The company’s customers include Lockheed Martin, and Google researchers are among those who have used D-Wave computers. Additional investors in D-Wave include Goldman Sachs and Draper Fisher Jurvetson, among others. In a press release, D-Wave said that it will use the funds to “augment commercial operations and further increase capabilities to provide solutions to customers.”
