It is also responsible for the Shopping section of more than 100 portals, including Microsoft MSN, Abril, Globo and R7.com.

Pioneer in the market for product comparisons, shopping and prices, Buscapé was born in 1999 as a necessity.

Then the university Romero Rodrigues, Rodrigo Borges, Mario Letelier and Ronaldo Takahashi detected the new market opportunity and launched the price comparison Buscapé, which is currently market leader in Latin America.
