The Westchester County Office of Economic Development, in partnership with the New York City Economic Development Corporation, established the QUANTM Consortium (Quantum Computing and Networking Technology Mobilization) in 2023, and has since established four working groups: Ecosystem Building, End User Adoption, Government Relations and Workforce Development/Talent Pipeline. More than 40 members, representing 25 organizations, from across New York State have joined this group to help develop a strategy for quantum information science and technology (QIST) job growth.

Among the QUANTM Consortium’s goals, are:

  • Establish New York as THE U.S. leader in quantum technologies;
  • Help NY State become the center of manufacturing for the quantum industry;
  • Develop and implement a comprehensive strategy that ensures quantum information science and technology (QIST) jobs will start, grow, and remain in the state;
  • Strengthen the STEM education infrastructure, from K to career; and,
  • Develop QIST workforce development plans that embrace equity and diversity.
