50+ startups

60+ CEOs

Meet the startups and companies making quantum business

Media meetings, investors meetings, 1-on-1 meetings

The first event fully dedicated to business and innovation centered around quantum technologies, for startups, corporates, investors and innovators.

Meet with Hello Tomorrow’s world-renowned community of innovators, entrepreneurs, and tech-enthusiasts – and discover how quantum businesses will drive the new global economy.


We are witnessing the birth of a technological revolution that will reshape our society.

Attend to understand how quantum computing is capable of accelerating the growth and development of almost any economic field where it may have an impact.

Come and learn how Volkswagen together with D-Wave systems address the problem of optimizing traffic flows in Beijing; or how startups use quantum-inspired algorithms to better compress satellite images.

Come and learn how to do fast quantum mining of cryptocurrencies, or how all cryptographic algorithms such as RSA, DSA and EEC are put in jeopardy; how cryptography and security are being disrupted; what is being used for Finance, Training of neural networks, Optimization problems such as traffic and scheduling, etc. 

Discover what are the new and powerful quantum tools to deal with problems related to the understanding of molecules, and the design of new drugs, fertilizers, gases to capture atmospheric carbon, etc.

Attend several sessions dedicated to examining the rapid progress recently realized in the areas of quantum computing, quantum communications, quantum cryptography, quantum machine learning, quantum sensing for industry, and more.

Campus Biotech will host Hello Tomorrow Switzerland’s international debut event, the “The Future of Quantum Businesses” on the 27th of November, 2018. Campus Biotech, was conceived as not only a hub for science and research, but also a place for people to meet and a place to be enjoyed.

The building is located in the old Industrial District of Sécheron near Lake Geneva. When Serono took the site over, its mission was to transform it into something advanced and contemporary – preserving the area’s identity and history, but combining it with the cutting edge.

Attendees of our debut event will be pleased with the arrangement of larger open and covered spaces including than the visually stunning central forum.
