Robert Bosch Venture Capital GmbH (RBVC), the corporate venture capital company of the Bosch Group, has participated in an extension of the recent funding of IonQ, which comprises a sum of over 55 million US dollars. The US based start-up develops and commercializes Quantum Computers.
IonQ’s trapped-ion approach offers the most promise for making reliable, scalable quantum computing a reality. Recently, the company built the largest programmable quantum computer to date, demonstrating performance benchmarks that no other quantum computer has been able to match.
The early backers New Enterprise Associates (NEA), GV and Amazon are now joined by a broad consortium of financial and industrial investors like Mubadala Capital, Samsung Catalyst Fund and RBVC. (Bosch)
