Eric Eldon is the Co-Editor of TechCrunch.
He was previously the co-founder and editor of Inside Network, where he managed publications including Inside Facebook, Inside Social Games and Inside Mobile Apps.
Before that, he spent a couple years covering technology and finance at VentureBeat, a leading Silicon Valley publication where he was the first employee.
While Inside Network sold to WebMediaBrands for $14 million in May of 2011, Eric also had a failed startup a few years ago. Called WriteWith, it offered online writing collaboration software.
Eric attended Stanford University and graduated with a degree in international relations in 2005. He reported and edited news for The Stanford Daily student newspaper, and ran its business for a year term.
Disclosure: I own a significant number of shares in WebMediaBrands, and an insignificant number of shares in AOL. I’m also an investor in Afton Field Farm, a natural meat ranch. My fiancé works at education startup Udacity, so I do not write or edit stories in that area.
