In Brazil, students are required to take standardized tests to attend college. But prep courses are so expensive that only wealthy students generally take them. Now a tech startup is making them more accessible and affordable.

Descomplica, a Brazilian education tech startup, is now helping millions more students with an accessible e-learning business.

Teachers record and deliver eight hours of live-streamed content seven a days a week to students who need to prepare for the mandatory tests to enter a university in Brazil.

Descomplica has tripled revenues year to year since its founding with online classes and a catalog of 15,000 videos. It is now considered Brazil’s largest classroom.
