Zapata Computing is building software and algorithms for the next generation of high-performance computing.
We develop powerful, hardware-agnostic solutions for simulation, optimization, and machine learning applications in chemistry, finance, logistics, pharmaceuticals, engineering, and materials. Through the transformative impact of quantum computing, we aim to solve massive problems that will revolutionize industry and society.
We named the company after Emiliano Zapata Salazar, a leader of the Mexican Revolution, to capture the revolutionary nature of both the field of quantum computing and the company itself.
Zapata Computing aims to be the market leader in quantum algorithms and software, providing a complete toolset for solving problems on near term quantum computers.
We connect industry leaders to a new era of computing. Together, we will solve what are considered the world’s toughest problems.
Selected recent press, social media, and updates.
We recently announced that we have raised $21 million in Series A financing to bring Quantum Computing To Enterprise Applications.

We are proud to share this profile of our co-founder & CEO by his alma mater, @universityofri. Read the article and learn more about @cjsavoie, our company’s origin story, and the tough problems we at Zapata Computing have set out to solve.
Excited to announce our collaboration with @MSFTQuantum - we look forward to working directly with their quantum researchers, scientists, and engineers along with gaining deeper access to Microsoft's advanced quantum software, tools, and libraries (http://msft.social/MDl0i3 )
Zapata co-founding scientist, @caoyudong, and intern alumni, @EAnschuetz, has developed a proposal for implementing a quantum Boltzmann machine in a new way, using only time evolution and local measurements. Check out their article on Arxiv.
“Another one that we’re excited about: @ZapataComputing. This team is working with some of the biggest industrial players to solve true problems that only #quantumcomputing [...] can solve.” @ktrae from @enginexyz about #toughtech in @FortuneMagazine
