  • Among e-learning businesses, Descomplica or “Uncomplicated” in English, is one of the most successful startups in Latin America. The company has tripled revenues year on year since its founding with online classes and a catalog of 15,000 videos.
  • Descomplica is now considered Brazil’s largest classroom. So far this year it delivered content and videos to over 40 million students. With much of Descomplica’s success seen as a result of its “fun” factor, its next step is to up the “wow” even further with high-tech creative content.
