Eduardo Sirotsky Melzer is known simply as “Duda.” This Brazilian entrepreneur has led his family based business on a path to much success over the years. RBS Group, or Grupo RBS in Portuguese, is a media company working primarily in news and radio entertainment. More recently, Duda Melzer has taken on an even bigger project with digital media. He founded e.Bricks Digital to not only have an outlet for RBS Group’s work but to pave the way for a future in digital media for his home country. Duda’s efforts have been recognized and appreciated by many businesses and organizations. Through venture capital funding opportunities, e.Bricks Digital hand picks companies that will have a high likelihood of success online. The criteria are tough to meet. The companies must already have an established track record of success in sales and marketing.
Among the companies that have been selected are the largest wine distributor in Latin America, and an art show originating in Duda’s hometown of Porto Alegre. Although the company has only been in business since 2012, it funded 100 million in just a little over a year, and over 300 million since its inception. Providing this opportunity is paramount to achieving one of Duda Melzer’s goals of making Brazil a leader in online media.
Duda’s background lends itself to being a great leader in this type of business. He’s not only worked as a financial analyst, he’s also run an “unconventional” media company in the US known as BoxTop Media. His educational background of receiving an MBA from Harvard University and serving as a leader in many capacities has also earned Duda Melzer an immense amount of credit. He’s certainly earned the accolades he’s received and continues to receive from companies like Ernst & Young and national publications and organizations alike. This is certainly an executive worth looking out for in the future!
