Erasmus for Young Entrepreneurs
Erasmus for Young Entrepreneurs is a cross-border exchange programme, which gives new or aspiring entrepreneurs (New Entrepreneur) the chance to learn from experienced entrepreneurs running small to medium businesses in other Participating Countries.
The exchange of experience takes place during a stay with the experienced entrepreneur (Host Entrepreneur), which helps the new entrepreneur acquire the skills needed to run a small firm. The host benefits from fresh perspectives on his/her business and gets the opportunities to cooperate with foreign partners or learn about new markets.
The European Commission funds the Erasmus for Young Entrepreneur programme and through which it provides New Entrepreneur with subsistence grants therefore allowing the New and Host Entrepreneurs to concentrate on a meaningful, successful exchange without concern of monetary issues such as living costs (grant to cover living cost).
The exchange programme has no age restrictions, however for a New Entrepreneur to be eligible for the programme they will have to have a business plan and have a business that has been operating for less than three years. Entrepreneurs who have not yet started a business but plan to do so in the near future are also eligible – a comprehensive business plan is mandatory in both cases.
