Despite loving education and having studied at one of the best engineering schools in Brazil, Driven founders hated the college experience. They always had a motivation to one day create the college they wanted to go to. They started with Responde Aí, a study platform for university students. In 6 years they took the platform to 25,000 students, with R$10 million in revenue, profitable and doubling every year.

Now they created Driven, a training school for technology. The model starts focused on Responde Aí base students, who have strong analytical skills and already trust the brand.

Paulo, Michel and Pedro want Driven to be the best school for “Digital Engineers” (data scientists, developers, product managers, etc) in Latin America.
