Recently striking connections have been discovered between the research fields of black hole soultions in string theory and the one of entanglement measures in quantum entanglement theory.For the emerging research field the term The Black Hole/Qubit Correspondence has been coined. The basic idea is that wrapping configurations of extended objects in extra dimensions can  give rise to interesting realizations of entangled systems and black holes at the same time. The geometry of the extra dimensions and the wrapping type determines the entangled system in question. Usually as the extra dimensional spaces Calabi-Yau manifolds are chosen. In this talk I give some hints how this constraint could be relaxed. These considerations might substantially generalize the range of validity of the Black-Hole/Qubit correspondence.
