Anchor Group is pleased to announce the expansion of its Industrial Innovation Platform into the UK, with the addition of Santiago Tenorio as Venture Partner based in London. An entrepreneur and investor, Santiago brings over 10 years of experience investing into or advising family offices on early-stage technology startups, with a particular focus on AI, robotics, mobility, and digital assets.
Santiago was previously Head of Investments at a multi-billion dollar family office, where he launched Rewired, a $100 million thematic investment vehicle focused on Robotics, AI and mobility. He has also led a Global Partnerships & Innovation team at American Express’ Commercial Payments division and worked at Blackrock and at BAML’s Technology, Media & Telecom Investment Banking group. A successful entrepreneur, he is currently a founding sponsor of Aguadulce LNG, an energy infrastructure project in development in Colombia and has previously co-founded or led multiple startups in the FoodTech, F&B and social gaming sectors in the UK.
“The UK is a major innovation hub for industrial and high-tech startups. We are delighted to have Santiago join us to drive, in particular, our engagement with early-stage technology startups and with industrial families in the UK, EU and in Latin America. He brings a unique mix of entrepreneurial, corporate, and investment experience and a network of early-stage startups critical to further develop our investment platform,” said Dweep Chanana, Managing Partner.
“Bridging collaborations – whether through investment or partnerships – between industry incumbents and technology innovators has been one of my main drivers for most of my career. There are world-class technologists and inventors coming out of the European tech ecosystem and a growing interest from FOs and family-owned businesses to tap into that innovation through investing in early-stage tech. I am excited to join forces with the team at Anchor Group to expand the reach and impact of the Industrial Innovation Platform to new markets”.
