WHAT I LIVE FOR
Tallis Gomes started his first business in 2001 at the age of 14. He created a physical marketplace selling cellphones that he bought from an online marketplace platform. Tallis studied in the most prominent marketing school in Brazil in 2005, but he dropped out 2 years later to fully dedicate his time to his second business, the E-Spartan, which was a social media agency focused on gamefication. Tallis has also worked in national and multinational companies, such as Unilever. Previously, he created his third business, called Techsamurai, a cloud software agency, where he hired developers in many parts of the world to improve the efficiency and price of projects. In 2001, Tallis founded Easy Taxi during a contest (Startup Weekend) and he became one of the first in the world to create such business model. He was listed by Forbes Brazil as one of the top 30 young Brazilians who is transforming the country and one of the top 25 most influential people in the Brazilian internet by Galileu (biggest scientific Brazilian magazine).
