Hey 👋. Thanks for stopping by. I am Santiago.
I've built three businesses. After college, I lived for five years out of one. After getting inside an acceleration program, I crashed my second company in less than a year. Since then, I've been consistently growing my third business for nine years. I've mentored a few startups during that time and recently started investing in them. I graduated in economics, although I tried philosophy and computer science before that. I've done a couple of postgraduate studies in India and the US. I've lived in Bogotá, Beijing, Tokyo, and San Francisco. I've been a tutor, a teacher, an analyst, a mover and, a barman for one night. I enjoy doing curry for my wife and carne al trapo for my friends. I practice Kalaripayattu a couple of days a week.
Some readings I've enjoyed.
