Catalonia Kilimanjaro Quantum Tech, 4YFN 2024 Best Startup


Without the jury even realizing it yet, before the last company makes its pitch (the rhetoric with which startups try to seduce potential investors), the listener is clear. “I think this is the best thing in Spain now,” he explains to his interviewer. On stage, Marta P. Estarellas, CEO of Qilimanjaro Quantum Tech, has four minutes to summarize what her company does. It will face five other companies of its type in the final of the 4YFN Awards 2024, which will end with it being crowned the best company of the year.


This Catalan company, a spin-off of the University of Barcelona (UB), the Barcelona Supercomputing Center (BSC) and the Institute of Physics for Higher Energies (IFAE), won the 4YFN Awards at MWC Barcelona 2024, the highest recognition for a start-up within this conference.

As Estarelas explained to EL PERIÓDICO a few days ago, Kilimanjaro is developing quantum chips that are more precise than the current ones in its calculations. Their proposal, in its initial phase, goes further: they want to become “the Amazon or quantum apple.”
