Erasmus for Young Entrepreneurs helps provide aspiring European entrepreneurs with the skills necessary to start and/or successfully run a small business in Europe. New entrepreneurs gather and exchange knowledge and business ideas with an experienced entrepreneur, with whom they stay and collaborate for a period of 1 to 6 months.
The stay is partly financed by the European Commission.
You can participate in the programme as a new entrepreneur if:
– You are firmly planning to start a business, based on a viable business plan;
– You have less than 3 years of total entrepreneurial experience.
Your (future) company or activity can be in any sector and there is no age limit (Note: all participants must be over 18 years old).
As a new entrepreneur, you will benefit from on-the-job training in a small or medium-sized enterprise in another Participating Country.
As a host entrepreneur, you can benefit from fresh ideas from a motivated new entrepreneur on your business.
„Erasmus for Young Entrepreneurs“ is financed by the European Commission and operates across the Participating Countries with the help of the local contact points, competent in business support (e.g. Chambers of Commerce, start-up centres, incubators etc.). Their activities are coordinated at European level by the Support Office of the Programme.
