“We’re glad to have the opportunity to join this renowned group, it’s a reward for our hard work on education and the proof that we’re on the right path when using technology to help our students to reach their goals”, says Marco Fisbhen, CEO at Descomplica.
The startup is one of the two Brazilian companies joining the group of a hundred companies.
