Loretta TIOIELA is the Founder & Managing Partner of Next Sequence, a new venture firm incubated at VC Lab.

She is a technologist with more than 12 years of experience in Cloud and AI technologies and has worked for major industry players, such as Samsung Electronics and Huawei Technologies. She was, until recently, the Chief Product Officer at Scaleway, a European cloud service provider with more than 100,000 servers in production. Here, she launched more than 10 cloud and AI products within one year.

Loretta has chosen to put her faith in the belief that the future will be shaped by the convergence of life science and computing technologies. Thus, she co-founded OpenSynBio, the 1st open computing foundation for synthetic biology.

Her mission is to build the largest synthetic biology open computing community. This will involve the development of open-source computing technologies for synthetic biology and bring together the largest community of researchers, startups, or industrials to collaborate, develop and run state-of-the-art computing technologies, such as cloud computing, artificial intelligence and quantum computing. The aim is to fast-forward research and development in synthetic biology.
