Although Brazil is one of the countries that have faced the biggest challenges as far as entrepreneurship is concerned, there are still some entrepreneurs in the country who have done a great job. Brazil is ranked among the last countries in the world as far as ease of starting and running of a business is concerned. The main challenges that face the country include high venture capital bureaucracy and heavy taxation. Many business people who had dreams of running enterprises have abandoned the dream after being frustrated by the challenges. There are however others who have made sure that despite the challenges that have been faced in the country, they will never let their dreams to die. One such person is Guilherme Paulus, a prominent businessman in the country.
Guilherme Paulus is an entrepreneur who deals with tour business. In 1972, he created a company known as CVC, alongside his friend Carlos Vicente. The idea was brought by Vicente although it is Paulus who implemented it. Vicente left after four years, and Guilherme Paulus had to do everything alone. He built the company with challenges until his dreams were accomplished. Today, CVC is the biggest tour company in Brazil and Latin America. It is also one of the businesses that have helped Brazil to have a developed tourism sector. He has gone ahead and created another business known as GJP Hotels and resorts. He has created an enabling environment for tourist visiting the country to find world-class accommodation services.
Guilherme Paulus took the chance he found in the accommodation and tourism sector in Brazil, and he has never let go. He has concentrated with this line of business to the extent that he has remained innovative throughout the journey. At no point has he ever tried any other way for the time he was in the industry. CVC is now a multi-billion business. He recently sold 63 percent stake of the company to an American company known as Carlyle Group. He is now ready to build the company further and ensure that there is enough transformation of the business in the country.
