Co-founder – CTO

Having a high level of curiosity and interests in many fields, Erik van Elderen studied and got practical experience in areas like organic agriculture & dairy farming, hospitality, entrepreneurship, education, social work and IT. With the foundation of SkillEd and its versatile projects, he found a way to combine many of them.

While Dutch from origin, the last 15 years he lived with his family in Sweden, Portugal and New Zealand, to finally return again to Sweden. SkillEd has its roots in Portugal, where it was thought up under the Mediterranean sun, together with Guus.

Erik is driven by his passion for thinking solutions and his fun with tinkering, prototyping and designing & building things (especially with code or with logs&timber). Besides that, he likes to busy himself with hobby-farming/permaculture, music, running and hanging around in nature.
