Creating a Third of the UK's funded 


QTEC was a world-leading incubator for innovators of quantum inspired and deep technologies. It was formed in 2016 as an EPSRC skills and training hub and was part of the £270 million government invested UK National Quantum Technologies Programme which closed in July 2022.

Through bespoke specialised training, QTEC supported academics with the skills they need to set up a successful technology start-up to underpin the UK's quantum technology industry. 

Over the five years, it has supported over 48 individuals over four cohorts who have gone on to create a third of the UK's funded quantum technology companies. 

Post QTEC's closure, a lot of the learning and training was brought into SETsquared Bristol to form the Quest pre-incubation programme to continue supporting academically-minded individuals to develop world-leading deep technology businesses.

The support system and the training I received was instrumental in pushing me forward and helping me to go beyond my comfort zone - helping me to pursue my passion and my dreams."
