Biography

Santiago started his professional career in finance and as a tech entrepreneur, before completing an MBA at INSEAD in 2015. In 2017, he launched the ChangeNOW summit, which has become the largest global event on solutions for the planet. This accelerating event brings together 1,000 solutions and over 30,000 changemakers from around the world annually in a vibrant, action-oriented format.

Santiago co-founded the Tech for Good France network, merging into the main professional association for social enterprises in the country. He also acts as an early-stage investor and a nominator to the Prince William's Earthshot Prize. In 2021, he is recognized as one of the “50 under 40” who change France by the French press. When he is not at work, Santiago enjoys reading and passing on his multiple passions - knowledge of nature, history and magic - to his two sons.
