The American-Ukrainian startup Haiqu, which develops software to enhance the productivity of quantum processors, will collaborate with the Perimeter Institute and conduct joint research. Mykola Maksymenko, co-founder and CTO of Haiqu, shared this information with DOU.

As part of the partnership, Haiqu will establish its research group working on the Perimeter Institute campus, particularly in one of its labs called the Quantum Intelligence Lab (PIQuIL). The experts from the startup will initiate several joint research projects with the institute's scientists. The lab will also create opportunities for student internships.

"Perimeter is a renowned scientific institute in our domain, combining artificial intelligence and quantum technologies. With the institute and its laboratory, we can work, research, test our ideas, and be actively present in a like-minded environment. It will also be a place where our researchers from other R&D centers, including those from Ukraine, can intern," said Mykola Maksymenko, co-founder and CTO of Haiqu.

The Perimeter Institute is one of the world's leading centers for scientific research in theoretical physics. It is located in the heart of Canada's "Quantum Valley" in Waterloo. The institute operates a network of laboratories focused on developing their prototypes of quantum computers. Key research areas at Perimeter include cosmology, gravity, quantum technologies, condensed matter systems, and mathematical physics. Perimeter also plays a role in educating the next generation of physicists and promoting scientific enthusiasm among students, faculty, and the wider community.

Haiqu Inc. is an American-Ukrainian startup founded at the end of 2022. In June of the same year, the startup announced the closure of a $4 million pre-seed funding round. The round was led by Silicon Valley investors, including MaC Venture Capital, Toyota Ventures, SOMA Capital, as well as Ukrainian venture funds like u.ventures, SID Venture Partners, Roosh Ventures, and private investors. Haiqu was founded by Richard Givan (USA) and Mykola Maksymenko (Ukraine).
