H.D. (Hidde) van Erp
Born, raised and still living in the province of Noord-Brabant, together with Esther and our two kids Lars and Iza. Many years ago I learned to explore my creative abilities at the vocational school for creative crafts Sint Lucas. Since graduating in Industrial Engineering and Management at Avans University of Applied Sciences I have worked for several companies in the creative industry.
Life as an entrepreneur taught me to understand how to implement new business models for yourself and your customers. Still, it was a good decision scaling down after many years of long days and short nights. From being a lecturer at Fontys I am now working on the operational level as Fieldlab Manager of the Cross-border think tank “Grenszlab”. Further on, I will still be active as Coordinator/Coach at Crosslab.
