Pioneering quantum software

Taking quantum from theory into practice

Creating a world-leading quantum simulation engine

Riverlane is a research-led start-up that develops software and algorithms for quantum computers. Backed by leading venture capital funds and the University of Cambridge, our mission is to bring the discovery of materials and drugs into a new computational era.

We’re building a simulation engine for microscopic systems to replace expensive laboratory tests with computer simulation. In collaboration with leading academics and cutting-edge companies, we are developing two early use cases for our software: the design of new battery materials and new drugs.

With a cross-disciplinary team of world leading researchers in computational chemistry, mathematics, and physics, we will take quantum computing from theory into practice.
