In January 2019, Casimir alumnus and former Casimir PhD Platform member Jelmer Renema co-founded QuiX, a company which produces integrated photonic solutions for quantum information processing. In this online session, Jelmer will give an overview of his experiences from the first year of this company. He will focus on the differences between an academic environment and one of industrial research, and on the practicalities of life in a tech startup.

This talk will be of interest to those considering the choice between academia and industry, as well as those contemplating starting their own business.
