[Updated on March 12th, 2018]
While Brazil’s overall GDP fell 4 percent in 2015, its tech industry has been largely immune to the slowdown, growing 20 percent from 2014-2015.
The Brazilian startup ecosystem is still in its early days, but there are many startups growing under the media radar in this thriving environment. We believe they deserve to be discovered, and, who knows, maybe one day become the champions of the world economy!
Why these companies?
Out of the 150+ startups that applied for this selection, these companies displayed exceptional performance on important success factors – strength of the team, size of the opportunity, competitive environment, etc.
Most competitions are biased towards companies that reached the largest number of milestones. We tried to avoid this bias, and reward companies on abnormal performance no matter their development stage.
