Steve Brierley

CEO and Founder


Steve Brierley is founder and CEO of Riverlane, which is building the Operating System for error corrected quantum computers. He founded the company in 2016, because of his passionate belief that fault tolerant quantum computers will be capable of accelerating a significant era of human progress and could be built far sooner than previously imaginable. Today, Riverlane is well on its way to achieving that mission.

Steve has worked in quantum for 20 years and is an expert advisor to the UK government. He holds a PhD in quantum information and has spent almost a decade in the intelligence community as a Senior Research Fellow at the University of Cambridge, leading major research projects in quantum computing.
