Erik van der Zijden
Oss, The Netherlands
BSc in Medical Biology, Bachelor in International Management and MBA. For 16 years active in several international roles in pharma, varying from business analysis, export sales, marketing and innovation. Started his own start-up DigiRedo in 2008 focussing on Web 2.0/Enterprise 2.0 implementation (and yes, made a few start-up mistakes along the way). The change to mobile health in 2011 with the creation of Synappz Medical Apps was a logical step, given the passion in healthcare, digital and the challenging yet inspiring life of a start-up.
Erik is a Doer, likes to build something up from the ground. Doesn’t let go until it’s done. Chooses to work in a creative and inspiring environment where the tasks are complex. Has an almost unhealthy interest in all things digital.
Married with Floor, and two wonderful daughters who seem to find their way to digital as well. Erik's (tries to) keep fit with fitness and kickfun, and finds balance with Aikido.
