Guilherme Paulus and The Impressive Business Growth of Brazil Because of His Ventures
The world’s great inventions would not have been plausible or even thought possible without the involvement of risk-takers, such as entrepreneurs. Entrepreneurs risk money and time with no guarantee of returns just to accidentally fall upon an invention, product, method or innovation that would upend everything we thought was impossible. It is these risk-takers’ valuable work that we enjoy most of the products we have today.

In an article from Revista Turismo, it is expressed that Brazil right now is progressive because of contributions of entrepreneurs like Guilherme Paulus. Through the opening speech that he shared at the opening event of the 2017 Top Seller Event, Guilherme Paulus talked about how he started his tourism operator firm CVC, how he made it into a leading travel agency and how he moved on to more different ventures. Right now, Guilherme Paulus is the president of GJP Hotels Network, which is leading in Brazil in terms of hotel excellence.
The news report also disclosed how Paulus shared his story of how difficult it was to be the founder of CVC and the GJP network. He also highlighted the importance of consolidation of the two brands to build his career success. The story of how Paulus started in business is also noted in the news article. He didn’t want to be a businessman at first, but wanted to be a doctor. Because of financial limitations from his family, he wasn’t able to push through and that’s when he realized that tourism may be his line of work.
The CVC company that Paulus started and co-founded has long been a successful tour operator. It was so successful that it was bought by the global private equity group Carlyle for about $420 million, which is equivalent to 64.6% stake in the company. In addition, Istoe Dinheiro also added that Paulus reputation today is even more impressive after Money magazine just declared him as Entrepreneur of The Year in 2017.
The success of Paulus doesn’t end in the laurels that he just received. He still is expanding his network of hotels across Brazil, with 20 units of his hotel empire serving the different regions. This success is most likely going to be sustained knowing that Paulus’ heart is so much into the hospitality enterprise. He is reported to enjoy developing and generating the job market of Brazil, and his hotel enterprise is one key to making that happen.
