Inefficient services irritate consumers, but e.Bricks Ventures sees an opportunity. The Brazilian venture capital firm, controlled by the Sirotsky and Szajman families, is preparing a R$300 million fund to invest in startups with a proven track record of improving the quality of four essential areas: health, education, financial services and services for small and medium-sized companies. RBS, owned by the Sirotkys, controls the biggest TV Globo affiliate in Brazil. Grupo VR, controlled by the Szajmans, operates in meal tickets, finance and real estate. The first investments are expected for July.
