The startup, which is less than 2 years old, is already the largest community of developers in LATAM and ranks among the largest in the world.

The company's state-of-the-art competitive programming platform offers over 2,400 analytical and programming tests in 27 different programming languages. As beecrowders train and compete, they enhance their logical and programming skills, achieve higher rankings, and accelerate their journeys to the top. The highest-ranked beecrowders are professionally disputed by the most innovative global corporations.

The startup is poised for its next growth phase in its journey to become one of the world's largest and most significant platforms for professional and technology services. According to João Lúcio de Azevedo Filho, CEO and co-founder of the company, beecrowd is well-positioned to achieve its goals not only due to its innovative strategy but also because it incorporates a strong ESG component in it: the beecrowd platform is currently used free of charge by over 220,000 students from 660 educational institutions in 47 countries, generating positive impacts on communities and contributing to building a fairer world with more opportunities.

The resources from the investment will primarily be used to strengthen the company's internal team (careers), implement new features on the beecrowd platform, enhance user experience, and introduce the new B2B area of the platform in the coming months.

This significant milestone gives us even more confidence and energy to keep moving forward, integrating the future of work into our clients' experiences and changing the way the world works."
