The American magazine TIME launched last Tuesday (27/04) the list with the 100 most influential companies in the world.
In its first edition, the publication is divided into five categories and brings together companies from different sectors. Mercado Livre appears in the Leaders category, alongside companies like Nike, Apple and Nubank.
According to Ciara Nugent, reporter for the magazine, “since its founding in 1999, Mercado Libre, the region’s largest platform, has steadily grown its logistics network, shipping business and hugely popular digital-payments arm.” And continues, “Mercado Livre has been worth over $60 billion, making it one of Latin America’s most valuable companies.”
“It’s an overnight success story that took over two decades,” CEO and founder Marcos Galperin told TIME last year.
