2020 has been a challenging year for many sectors, but some services stood out. Companies and fintechs that operate in the areas of property management, logistics, or health have demonstrated their ability to face the crisis caused by the new coronavirus.

How were the startups picked up?
The research lead by LinkedIn considered four pillars:
- Growth in the number of employees,
- the interest of job candidates in the company, and

The startup must be independent and private to be eligible in the ranking. Also, they must have fifty employees in Brazil or more, be up to seven years old, and be headquartered in the country. Companies that have laid off 20% or more of their employees are also ineligible.
The study has been carried out since 2017, but this year it has undergone a change in its methodology.
