Tallis Gomes, founder of Easy Taxi, was recently named Young Leader of the Year at the 2015 BRAVO Business Awards hosted by the Latin Trade Group.
The awards committee noted that Gomes led her Brazilian startup through difficult periods that forced the company to completely revamp its business model shortly after it started.
"Tallis Gomes is the first person to receive the Young Leader of the Year Award, a new category of the BRAVO Business Awards which highlights the role of Latin Americans under 40 who are opening avenues for a brighter future in the region," Latin Trade CEO Rosemary Winters said.
Latin Trade's editorial judges were particularly impressed by Easy Taxi's accelerated growth and by specific traits of its growth strategy.
Gomes will be recognized at the inaugural session of the Young Leaders Forum on Oct. 28 in Miami.
