Dr Vikram Sharma is the Founder and CEO of QuintessenceLabs. Recognising the potential of quantum cybersecurity in the early 2000s while in California, Vikram sought to commercialise the technology, returning to the Australian National University to work with the Quantum Optics Group in the Department of Physics. QuintessenceLabs emerged from the world-leading research conducted by the group, and is today positioned at the forefront of the cybersecurity sector. The company's capabilities have been recognised at several Australian and international events, including as global runner-up from a pool of 2,500+ companies in IBM's SmartCamp competition in 2013, named by the Australian Information Industry Association as Australia’s most innovative small company in 2014, and selected by the Security Innovation Network as one of its SINET16 Cyber Security Innovators in 2015. In 2016, Cybersecurity Ventures named QuintessenceLabs its Cybersecurity 500 list of the world’s most innovative cybersecurity companies.  QuintessenceLabs was named one of the Top 20 Businesses of Tomorrow by Westpac in 2017, and most recently was selected as a Technology Pioneer by the World Economic Forum for 2018.

Prior to QuintessenceLabs, Vikram had deep experience in building and managing technology companies. During that time he founded two successful start-up ventures in the information technology infrastructure and services spaces - a consulting company providing IT services to the Federal Government in Australia, and one of India’s first private ISPs. He started his career as a programmer analyst, and went on to work as a consultant with a number of companies and government agencies in Australia.

Vikram holds a master of science in computer science from The Australian National University, a master of science in management (Sloan Fellow) from Stanford University, and a doctorate in quantum physics from The Australian National University. He was presented the Pearcey State Award for Entrepreneurship in 2013.
