Samantha Santaella

Philanthropy Associate
I’m a Venezuelan native, living in Boston for the past couple of years. I’ve been passionate about the field of social entrepreneurship since the first day I learned about it. I studied it throughout college, traveled to the Dominican Republic and South Africa to experience it firsthand, and quickly became certain that it was the field to which I would dedicate my career. Root Capital’s approach to social enterprise is unique and focused on impact, and I’m excited to contribute to our mission by engaging more people with our work and expanding our networks to keep transforming rural communities around the globe. When I’m not in the office, you can find me reading, outside exploring the city with my husband, and planning our next travel adventure!
