Dr Graeme Malcolm OBE

M Squared is a photonics and quantum technology company that enables new applications and industries – addressing some of society’s greatest challenges. Its award-winning laser platforms were designed to help scientists understand more about the world around them, but it has grown to become much more than a scientific laser engineering company. Its mission is to enable scientific progress and power industry, taking frontier science from the lab into the real world to advance the global scientific agenda.

Its lasers serve Nobel-prize winning scientists, cutting-edge corporations and top universities, and it has been a global business from day one. The company has already established itself as one of the UK’s most innovative and internationally recognised technology businesses – awarded the prestigious Queen’s Award for Enterprise in Innovation in 2016 and International Trade in 2017, as well as being named a Telegraph Tech For Good Pioneer in 2019.

“Innovation is about taking novel science out of the laboratory and into the real world to advance frontier technologies – ensuring that the next generation inherits these along with exciting challenges.”
