Pierre Desjardins

CEO, C12


Pierre Desjardins holds a Master of Science degree from Columbia University (2013) and later worked for six years as a strategy consultant. He founded the startup C12 in 2020. C12 is leading the next materials leap in quantum computing.


Unlike other quantum computers, C12 uses carbon nanotubes as the fundamental building block of their processor. By combining the power of an ultra-pure material with an easy-to-manufacture semiconductor device, we are building the next-generation quantum computers.
