QS are finalists in the KPMG UK Tech Innovator award
Quantum Science Ltd has been chosen to represent the North West in KPMG’s search for the next tech pioneer in the UK.
Quantum Science Ltd was one of the two shortlisted fast growth tech businesses from the region to pitch their businesses to a panel of industry experts in the search for two outstanding representatives from the North West to go forward into the UK final to find the next tech giant of the future.
Quantum Science has created world-leading nanomaterials called INFIQ® quantum dots (QD) that can be tuned to absorb visible and infrared light, material which can be readily incorporated into CMOS sensors to make novel QD sensors and revolutionise the $57B image sensor market with better performance at 1000 times lower cost.
Following the success of KPMG’s Best British Tech Pioneer, which, for the last seven years has uncovered a host of tech unicorns, the competition has this year gone global. Ten tech businesses from the North West were selected from almost 200 UK entries to pitch against each other to find an innovator who will represent the region at the UK finals later this year. The overall UK winner will secure a place at Web Summit in Lisbon in November, where they will compete against tech innovators from at least 16 other countries across most major regions of the world to be crowned the first KPMG Private Enterprise Global Tech Pioneer.
Dr. Hao Pang, founder and CEO of Quantum Science Ltd said:
“We were delighted to be a winner of the North West final in a strong field and we are really looking forward to the UK national competition.
It was a great experience to take part and to see other fantastic innovative companies from the North West.
We appreciated the inspiring and positive comments from the experienced KPMG panel about Quantum Science’s vision, technology and our progress towards global success.”
