How the idea CVC came about
The idea of starting CVC did not come from Guilherme Paulus. It actually came from the famous Carlos Vicente Cerchiari who was the state deputy by then. Paulus and this powerful politician first met in a ship where they talked about starting hotels. Carlos Vicente emphasized that he was really interested in starting a tourist agency within Santo Andre, a place he stayed with his family. At that time, Paulus used to work in Sao Paulo and didn’t have much money. The politician promised that he would help him start the project.
Immediately before the start of the project, Guilherme Paulus was a worker at the Casa Faro. However, he spent most of his time thinking about the project. When the time came, Paulus left his original place of work and concentrated on the project. He had a lot of confidence because people had told him that he can make a good entrepreneur. The two partnered for a period of about four years after which the powerful politician, Carlos Vicente Cerchiari left. Paulus remained to enjoy the fruits of partnership alone.
