Geek of the Week: Robbert van Geldrop

A few months ago we launched a feature called Geek of the Week. Every week, CloudWedge nominates a ‘Geek of the week’ to any cloud leader who has been in the news in the last week that we feel deserves special mention or praise.

We are happy to announce this weeks’ Geek of the Week is Robbert van Geldrop, CTO and co-founder of BackupAgent. We quoted Robbert in an article we wrote this week about BackupAgent’s move to become distribution partners with LabTech Software. We feel he deserves this award as Robbert is responsible for the path BackupAgent takes with its product development strategy by shaping both its pace and its vision. He co-founded the company in 2005, and since then it has grown from strength to strength.

Robbert Has a degree in Social Engineering and Policy Analysis from the Delft University of Technology. Over the years Robbert has dedicated a significant amount of mentoring for various startup and other programs including:  Rockstart, YES!Delft, Utrecht Inc, and Startup Weekend.

He can be found on his personal blog
