February 18, 2020

In this episode, we talk to Chune-Yang Lum, CEO of SpeQtral, a Space Capital portfolio company and a “Game-Changing Startup” of 2020 according to CB Insights.

Quantum computing is advancing rapidly and this is creating a problem for secure communications that rely on the supposed mathematical complexity of asymmetric encryption keys. Although these keys are secure against computational hacks today, most are easily cracked with quantum computers. China is leading the world in creating its own impenetrable quantum secure network and looks to extend that lead by outspending the US in quantum research by 13-1 over the next three years. With offices in Singapore and Colorado, SpeQtral are the only company outside of China that has demonstrated a quantum light source on-orbit. In this episode, we speak to Chune Yang Lum, CEO of SpeQtral, a Quantum Security company developing “the security layer for the quantum internet”.
