Harris & Harris Group Notes the Sale of a Second D-Wave Quantum Computer

New York, NY | Posted on May 16th, 2013

"I would echo D-Wave President, Bo Ewald's, statement that for D-Wave to have Lockheed Martin as its first customer and Google and NASA as its second customer, is 'just a great way to start' the commercialization of quantum computing," said Alexei Andreev, Executive Vice President and Managing Director of Harris & Harris Group. Chief Executive Officer, Doug Jamison, added, "D-Wave is just another example of how Harris & Harris Group provides shareholders with a chance to invest in the next generation of transformative companies while these companies are inaccessible to most investors. I think this illustrates Harris & Harris Group as a publicly traded venture capital firm involved in some of the most innovative technologies that will define the next decade."

Harris & Harris Group is an investor in privately held D-Wave Systems, Inc.
