In an article on Acaert, Duda Melzer received a bachelor’s degree from the Pontifical Catholic University of Rio Grande in Brazil at 26 years old. He also graduated from Harvard University with an MBA. After his schooling, Duda put in a few years in the corporate world. He was in a leadership role with BoxTop Media, which specializes in “unconventional” media. His work as a financial analyst also prepared him for future endeavors. Using his combined skills and educational attainment, Duda formed e.Bricks Digital in Brazil. This company was a great opportunity for not only Duda Melzer, but also for Brazil; as their online digital marketing sector was lacking compared to other countries. Wishing to change this, Duda founded the company with hopes that Brazil would become a major player in the game.
e.Bricks Digital provided an outlet for Brazilian businesses that were successful, but not online. After imposing rather strict requirements to apply, e.Bricks Digital picked a handful of businesses to invest in through venture capital and private equity initiatives. It provided funding in excess of 100 million in its first year and 300 million in recent years. Funding was also offered to new businesses, however, they had to show exceptional projections for success. Among the top companies picked are the largest wine producer and distributor in Latin America, and a contemporary art show. e.Bricks Media and Duda Melzer are rapidly changing the landscape of business in Brazil and abroad.
