Entropica’s goals include addressing computational needs within life sciences and accelerating precision medicine through the development of tools for genomic analysis and bioinformatics.
Entropica was founded by Centre for Quantum Technologies (CQT) of Singapore alumni Ewan Munro and Tommaso Demarie. Demarie is a physicist with a PhD from Macquarie University, Sydney and Munro has a PhD from the Centre for Quantum Technologies at the National University of Singapore. Munro previously worked on modeling and computational simulations of quantum optical systems.
The start-up was established with funding from Singapore’s Entrepreneur First programme and as of 2018 has support from SG Innovate (Singapore) and the Creative Destruction Lab (Toronto, Canada). Entropica partnered with Rigetti, a US hardware company in 2018, which gives them access to advanced quantum processors.
