Brazil Is Fertile Territory For Startups According To Flavio Maluf

Economists are still talking about Brazil’s 3.6 percent economic growth contraction in 2016. But executives like the CEO of Eucatex, Flavio Maluf, are talking about the opportunities that exist in the Startup sector of Brazil’s economy. According to Maluf, there are more than 4,200 new projects in the healthcare, tech, e-commerce, entertainment, and education sectors of Brazil’s economy. Opportunities for investment exist in programming, digital marketing, customer service and other areas of the Tech industry, thanks to an injection of new Startups in that industry at https://www.mundodomarketing.com.br/noticias-corporativas/conteudo/108970/conheca-com-flavio-maluf-algumas-dicas-para-administrar-uma-empresa-familiar. The unemployment rate is high in Brazil, but Maluf thinks the unemployment rate will drop in 2017, thanks to the job openings in Startups. Brazil needs to reinvent itself, according to Maluf on economia.estadao.com.br. Maluf knows something about reinventing businesses. Eucatex has gone through several transformations since Flavio was named president in 1997.

Eucatex is not a new company. Flavio’s grandfather started the company in 1951. The company only had one product back then. Eucalyptus ceiling tiles gave Eucatex the cash flow it needed to become an international business on segs.com.br. The Brazilian market loved the wood ceiling tiles. Argentina imported the tiles from Eucatex in the 1950s because of the local demand. By the time Flavio joined the company in 1987, Eucatex was shipping several building products to North and South America and Germany.

Flavio Maluf spent 10 years learning the business before he was named president in 1997. Today Eucatex is one of the largest exporters of building supplies. Home improvement stores and building companies in the United States, Canada, and Germany carry and use Eucatex brands. Eucatex also offers private label products to home improvement stores.

Eucatex is one of Brazil’s success stories, but the real success story is Flavio Maluf. Maluf turned Eucatex into an environmentally friendly company that only uses renewable energy in their factories and offices. Flavio also initiated a save the eucalyptus tree initiative by leasing property to grow eucalyptus trees from seed. Flavio Maluf is known for his open opinion about climate change, and what the new president of Brazil, Michel Temer, should do about it. Temer recently signed the climate change initiative in Paris.

A Latin American Real Estate Giant

Real Estate is normally an industrial field that has difficulty in finding a balance between financial calculations and worth of property. The market is known for its ability to wane and wean over a short period of time, with the housing market crash of 2008 a direct example. It is important to real estate companies to have a general idea of what they can expect for gains and losses to their corporate structure, and Davos Real Estate is no different in these areas of need. In order to try and fight these issues David Osio, the founder and CEO of Davos Real Estate, has assisted in the development of an interesting program that accurately calculates differences in profit margins with how the market is currently operating, allowing for more ease in staying ahead of the game.

David Osio is an interesting business man who can thank much of his success on his rich cultural heritage. Osio is originally from Venezuela, meaning that he brings to the table a unique and powerful perspective to the real estate industry. Originally majoring in Law, Osio has a broad understanding in how international relations work between Latin America and the United States and uses these skills to help him progress within the real estate market.

Osio focuses his attention on the Latin American population in the United States, which is an often times ignored aspect of consumerism and an untapped resource to the housing market. Davos Real Estate attempts to by;pass these borders of diversity by making Latin Americans their primary customer base, giving them access to information and opportunities that they are rarely given outside of the company structure.

With the new implementation of this reliable advancement in financial technology Osio and Davos Real Estate can successfully bring more satisfaction to their customers, who already identify Osio and his company as powerful advocates to the Latin American community.

These are great times in globalization.

Talk Fusion: The Wave of the Future

Whenever you win an award, you know you are doing something right, without a shadow of a doubt. Recently, Talk Fusion won the 2016 WebRTC Product of The Year Award. That is quite an honor, to say the least. It means they have built a product that stands out from the rest. It is an innovative product and one that a lot of people get a lot of use out of in their day-to-day lives, especially with video emails and video conferences. There is nothing like seeing someone’s face that really allows you to get to know them, understand them, and relate to them.

The award was handed out by Technology Marketing Corporation (TMC) and they talked about how the judges were so impressed by their video chat and all of the features that it offers. When it comes to video email, it is great for those who want to send a personalized video email to someone and they have a lot to say. They don’t have to type it, because sometimes, when you type something, it can be misunderstood or the tone can be misread. Those days are long gone. With video email, you can see someone’s expression and get the feel for the voice and exactly how they are feeling. If you are in a long distance relationship, it really allows you to connect with someone.

That is what Talk Fusion is all about: connection. They have created a wonderful product and everyone is started to take notice. You can get the video chat app at both the Google App store and the iTunes store. Bob Reina, CEO of the company, gave the credit to the his IT team that works all the time to make sure the product is working at its optimal level. I have a feeling this is the first of many, many awards for Talk Fusion. The future is bright, and they are getting more and more praise each and every day. They are doing something special and they have a unique product that no one can take away from them as they created it and watched it grow.
