After a few years of working with the tour agency, he managed to create some strong connections with all professionals from all sectors of life some of which saw the potential he had and encouraged him to start his own company. He had never given a serious thought to the idea of starting his own company until he met Carlos Vicente Cerchiari who was the state deputy at the time. Paulus became serious about the idea of starting a company when his friend told him that he wanted to start a tourist agency in Santo Andre. Although Guilherme Paulus had no capital at the time, he went ahead and opened the CVC Company.
