Comment from Mr. Hideki Yarimizu, President and Representative Director


"Quantum computing is being developed at the global level as a next-generation technology that will dramatically advance the development of materials, drug discovery, transportation, financial and economic simulation, and cryptography. At the same time, in order to promote the social implementation of quantum computing, which requires a long period of time, it is necessary to have knowledge of ICT, cloud business, and management, including business development, in addition to technology.


Quemix has been able to integrate these elements at a high level by utilizing the resources of its parent company, Terra Sky. In addition to Quemix, TerraSky has a proven track record of providing support to various tech venture companies and helping them grow their businesses.


We decided to invest in Quemix because we are convinced that their support will play a role in the development of quantum computing technology in Japan and its implementation in society.


By providing support to such a venture company, we aim to attract risk money to the field of quantum computing and other next-generation industries."
