Because evolution is unitary.
We run a microgrant program to fund explorers across the world to work on quantum technologies. Do you have an idea for a project?
We do our own research to help the ecosystem as a whole. For example, we are developing (1)mitiq, an open source compiler for error-mitigated quantum programming, and (2)metriq, an open community platform for sharing quantum tech benchmarks.
Project could be open source quantum sofware, education materials and workshops, a new quantum sensor prototype, or much more.
Our program is designed to be as simple as possible. No organizational affiliation required. Just a short form and a two minute video.

I imagine that years from now, some of the biggest contributors in quantum computing will have come through the Unitary Fund program. The grants provide avenues for creative, motivated folks to meaningfully contribute to this new industry. Awardees are using the program to launch their careers in quantum computing, landing jobs at Zapata and elsewhere.

Our support of the Unitary Fund enables continued growth of the quantum computing ecosystem. It is an opportunity to connect with and help quantum developers from a diverse range of skill sets and backgrounds.
