MIT listed us in the top 30
smartest companies in the
world. We’re also aiming to be
the most fun, but MIT doesn’t
have a list for that yet.
We design and fabricate all
our quantum chips in our
facility in Fremont, CA.

On a mission to build the world's
most powerful computers
Rigetti Computing is building the world’s most powerful computers to help solve humanity’s greatest problems. The company was founded in 2013 by Chad Rigetti and is based in Berkeley and Fremont, CA. Rigetti has raised over $119 million from investors, including Andreessen Horowitz and Vy Capital. We currently have over 50 U.S. patent applications on file,
with many more in process.
Integrated quantum-classical computing leverages today’s existing high-power processors and the advanced computational power of quantum chips to accelerate deployment of quantum computing in the near term. Rigetti is the only company deploying full-stack solutions for this integrated computing environment.

We package and deploy
those chips in cryogenic
environments and build
software that integrates our
