Two of them are headquartered in Brazil: edtech Descomplica, which helps students prepare for the entrance exams, and Cargo X, which connects cargo with truck drivers and carriers.

“We are very happy with the opportunity to be part of such a renowned group. This is a reward for our hard work in education, and the proof that we are on the right track when using technology for our students to achieve their goals,” said Marco Fisbhen, the president of Descomplica

Cargo X recently raised $2.8M (R$15M) from Pattac Empreendimentos.

The other two Latin American companies on the World Economic Forum list are Chilean NotCo, a plant-based food startup, and Argentine Ripio, a fintech that manages digital wallets to store, buy or sell cryptocurrencies.
