All began in the pre-vestibular school, when João Batista Custódio and Evanir Aguiar dos Santos, directors of Fortus Consultoria Accounting, since 2004, met. However, the same friendship only started when they met to enroll in college. During the university, they followed friends and John was invited by Evanir to be the godfather of his first child, which left them even closer. Professionally, they ended up going through different paths at that time. João went to the commercial area of a multinational and Evanir for the technical segment of the accounting area.
Thus, in a conversation with John, where both had dreams in common, involving a business that offered differentiated services and focused on the area of management, adding value to the product, arose the idea of opening the Fortus. After a year and a half, with the development growing, the room where the company worked, in the center of the Capital, became small and the partners moved to the current headquarters in the Partenon. In 2012, They opened the first branch in the North Zone of Porto Alegre.
