D-Wave Systems is a quantum computing company that sells and manufactures quantum computing and superconducting electronics.

D-Wave is the leader in the development and delivery of quantum computing systems and software, and the world’s only commercial supplier of quantum computers. 

D-Wave Systems was founded in 1999 by Eric Ladizinsky & Geordie Roseand and is based in Burnaby, British Columbia, Canada. The company has additional offices and R&D facilities in Palo Alto, California.

D-Wave's mission is to unlock the power of quantum computing for the world. We believe that quantum computing will enable solutions to the most challenging national defense, scientific, technical, and commercial problems.

D-Wave systems are designed to solve a broad class of difficult optimization, machine learning, and sampling problems that have information volumes and complexity that overwhelm the ability of conventional computers to derive accurate, timely and actionable knowledge.
