We work together to explore, build and test solutions that we are proud of for people that are as enthusiastic about technology as we are. From cloud architects to quantum physicists – our team shares a passion for technological innovations that make a real difference in the world.
#FrictionlessQuantum is our calling
We are dedicated to providing people with the necessary tools and knowledge to engage with quantum computing, regardless of their current stage in the quantum journey. Our goal is to unite people from various industries and professions, fostering successful collaboration in order to build innovative solutions for the future.
2007. Andreas Liebing and Dr. Mathias Petri founded StoneOne AG – a Berlin based software company focused on innovative technology and new platform business models. In 2018, they jointly developed with the University of Stuttgart the PlanQK vision: Creating an open platform and ecosystem for quantum applications.
PlanQK received substantial funding from the German Federal Ministry of Economic Affairs and gained support from other companies and scientific institutions, leading to a total investment volume of 36 million euro, making PlanQK one of the single largest quantum application research projects.
Within StoneOne, a new venture led by David Niehaus and Michael Falkenthal evolved into what is today Anaqor. This growing team guided the PlanQK project, built the underlying platform and drove quantum application expertise. Due to this success, StoneOne officially became Anaqor AG in 2023, focusing exclusively on quantum computing while continuing existing legacy business relationships.
To the present day, the PlanQK ecosystem already consists of more than 100 organizations – leading scientific institutions, small and medium-sized companies and international corporations from different industries.
And the rest is a journey into the future.
