additional remarks The Quantum Entrepreneurship Laboratory is a project-based learning experience that brings together students of different backgrounds with reputable industry partners and selected quantum specialists to explore new commercial applications of quantum computing. Teams are presented with challenges from industry partners, for which they will have to develop prototypes of quantum software and commercialization strategies for these. Students will be supported with lectures from professors and invited experts as well as from interactions with teaching assistants, in both technical and entrepreneurial topics. The student teams will consist of a balanced combination of physics, management and informatics students. The students registering to the course at the School of Management will receive tailored lectures on the foundations of quantum technologies and the early applications of quantum computing. All roles will go through classes on use-case identification, business plan development, as well as classes on prototyping, pitching, and funding. A large part of the self-study for the quantum specialist and full-stack specialist entails finding and applying the right methods and algorithms to the identified use-case. The available slots will be allocated based on academic fit and relevant experience. After registering, please send us an e-mail to with your resume or a link to your LinkedIn or GitHub, as well as a motivational letter (max. 500 words) stating why you want to join the course, and why you would be a good fit.
