But not only that, the platform seeks to add another Guinness record to its history, by summoning the largest number of participants in a marketing event (more than 10,000), after having obtained worldwide recognition as the longest marketing class in the history, during a broadcast of about 48 uninterrupted hours of conferences via streaming, in December 2021.

“The execution of ideas not only has to do with talent, but with creating work groups, creating companies and ‘funding’ them so that they can scale quickly.
