The freely accessible article was published in October 2019 and remains timely:
The Nature analysis goes into detail on the value and number of quantum deals up to 2019, including for hardware and software, and provides some of the raw data as supporting information. The Archer team has bridged part of the knowledge gap on quantum deals from 2019-Present with some PitchBook Data, Inc. data provided below.
