How it works
Erasmus for Young Entrepreneurs is an exchange programme for entrepreneurs financed by the European Union. The person you host gets a grant, and there is no charge to your company. This offers you the opportunity to share experiences with new entrepreneurs who will work with you at your own company base. The exchange lasts for between one and six months.
Why it works
The host benefits from fresh perspectives on his/her business and gets the opportunities to cooperate with foreign partners or learn about new markets.
As a Host, you and your business can benefit from the input of fresh ideas and new skills from a motivated new entrepreneur. You can also tap into the knowledge of other European markets and develop your international contacts. Furthermore, the exchange could be the starting point in finding new opportunities for your business.
Eligibility - who can participate
As a host entrepreneur you can participate in the programme if:
• You are a permanent resident in one of the Participating Countries;
• You are the owner-manager of a small or medium enterprise OR a person directly involved in entrepreneurship at SME board level;
• You have been running a company for more than 3 years;
• You are willing to share your knowledge and experience with a new entrepreneur and act as a mentor.
