Elsa Sotiriadis, PhD, aka the Biofuturist is a globetrotting synthetic biologist-turned-futurist, former VC, entrepreneur and science fiction author. She has won multiple awards, has worked as lead analyst and management consultant in emerging technologies and helped build 25 ground-breaking deep tech startups as a VC. Tech goes under her skin – she became a “cyborg” live on stage. She earned her PhD at Imperial College London.

As Director & Chief Futurist at a leading early-stage venture capital firm, Elsa was running a “Moonshot Factory” to unlock the exponential potential of biology. There, she helped build some of the world’s boldest startups creating in vitro meat, eco-fashion, bio-computers and DNA data storage drives.  This transformative potential – within synthetic biology, human augmentation, future foods  & more – is a topic which Elsa is passionate about!
