Our Journey

Quantagonia's Journey through the Quantum Age

Every journey starts with uncertainty, but with every milestone, we determine our state: on track to revolutionize classical computing by making it faster, more resource-efficient, and capable of solving previously unsolvable problems.

H2 2021

Vision Becomes Reality

After months of iterating and refining ideas, Quantagonia was founded in November 2021 in the Rhein/Main area. The founders united with a shared vision to develop advanced software for quantum computers, driving innovation and helping businesses transition into the quantum era.

H1 2022

Pre-Seed Round & Launch

Quantagonia successfully closed its first venture-backed investment round and officially launched. This funding enabled the company to onboard specialists in High Performance Computing and Optimization, driving forward our mission to revolutionize quantum computing.

H2 2022

HybridSolver 0.1

Quantagonia made HybridSolver 0.1 available, marking an important milestone with its first product innovation just months after the company's launch. This foundational solution in the field of optimization set the stage for further development of the Hybrid Quantum Platform and the significant advancements in optimization that followed. Quantagonia was officially introduced as an IBM partner, further solidifying its position in the industry.

H1 2023

Seed Funding Round

Quantagonia secured its Seed Funding Round, raising the total investment to €4.3 million. This crucial funding enabled the company to accelerate its development and expand its team. With this support, Quantagonia advanced its technology and brought new innovations to the Hybrid Quantum Platform, further solidifying its position in the field of quantum computing.

H2 2023

Breakthroughs in Solver Performance and Optimization Models

While the Solver made significant performance improvements, preparing it for a future launch as a standalone high-performance engine, the team achieved initial breakthroughs in creating a mathematical optimization model using LLMs. In a significant development, Quantagonia was also introduced as the new code owner and maintainer of Qiskit-Optimization and partnered with Strangeworks to provide their customers with our advanced platform.

H1 2024

A Second Location and Final Steps to Product Launch

Quantagonia opened its second office in Munich to expand its strong talent pool and engage with the vibrant startup ecosystem in the city. The development of the platform was completed on schedule for the launch, and the performance of our Solver Engine competed with and outperformed existing market leaders in tests and research.
