Forbes Brazil Most Influential Under 30s nominee chooses CATS Academy

11 March 2019

Congratulations to CATS Academy student Davi, who was nominated by global media company Forbes in Brazil, as one of the most influential young business people in the country under the age of 30.




Davi started his own business called List-It, selling school material online, when he was just 13 years old. The business now operates in 57 cities across the country. His success developed when he presented a TED talk in Brazil (click here to watch the TED talk), which went viral, leading him to appear in the media across Brazil. Davi then took his business a step further, and presented his plan on the famous TV show, Shark Tank, to receive investment for List-It (click here to watch the episode). This episode now has 1.8 million views on Facebook. On top of all of this, Davi wrote a book to talk about his success and the balance between running a business and focusing on his school work and social life as a young entrepreneur, the book is now a best seller in Brazil, selling more than 60,000 copies.


In this video, Davi tells us about his journey as a young entrepreneur and the reasons why he chose CATS to study his senior year. He hopes to progress to a top entrepreneurial college in the US with the help of our college counseling team, and is currently waiting for his acceptances. Davi was particularly pleased with the international experience he has received, and says the best part of his time at CATS are the friends he has made from across the world.



At CATS Academy, we offer many extracurricular opportunities for students to develop their business and entrepreneurial skills.
