Prodege & Swagbucks.com have garnered a number of corporate awards including three consecutive placements (2011-2013) on the Inc Fast 500 and Los Angeles Business Journal Fastest Growing Company List.

In 2013 Prodege was named by the Los Angeles Business Journal as one of the best places to work in the city, and its 10,000% five year growth landed the company a top 25 placement on Deloitte's national Fastest 500 Growing Company List. In 2014 Swagbucks received its first outside capital - a $60 million dollar investment from Technology Crossover Ventures.

Prior to co-founding Prodege, Dudelson founded Music for Charity Productions - a non-profit consulting firm specializing in the marriage of entertainment brands and charitable causes. In 2005 Music for Charity Productions became one of the first firms to introduce SMS (text message) fundraising in the United States with the launch of the Sweet Relief Musicians Fund's text for charity campaign featuring Pearl Jam, OK GO and other artists. While leading Music for Charity productions, the firm produced and promoted over a dozen benefit events featuring a wide variety of artists including Sheryl Crow, Bonnie Raitt, Jackson Browne, Sara Bareilles, Garbage, Crowded House, Jerry Cantrell (of Alice in Chains), and George Clinton.

Dudelson is also a writer, guest speaker and concert photographer who currently writes a business blog for Inc Magazine and has served multiple times as both a moderator and panelist at SXSW. Dudelson's award winning concert photography is represented by RockPaperPhoto.com and has appeared in the Los Angeles Times, KROQ.com, AOL's Spinner.com, and Classic Rock Magazine.
