Company Snapshot

In 2004, Daniel and Fernando saw the demand for online health and wellness information in their country and created the WebMD of Brazil. MinhaVida, which began as a nutrition website and has expanded to address all health issues, provides instant access to a virtual library of more than 15,000 texts and guides written by physicians, medical associations and universities. With twelve million registered users and ten million hits per month, it has become the most popular health and wellness portal in Latin America and is well on its way to becoming Brazil’s most recognized health and wellness brand.

Endeavor and Minha Vida
