Erasmus for Young Entrepreneurs (EYE)

Capacity: 100 Starting: 30 November 0:00 - 0:00

Erasmus for Young Entrepreneurs is a cross-border exchange programme which gives new or aspiring entrepreneurs the chance to learn from experienced entrepreneurs running small businesses in other participating Countries.

Who can participate?

  • New entrepreneurs, firmly planning to set up their own business or have already started one within the last three years;
  • Experienced entrepreneurs who own or manage a Small or Medium-Sized Enterprise in one of the Participating Countries.

Why participate?

Whether you are a new or highly experienced entrepreneur, the programme can offer strong added value to your business: possible benefits include exchange of knowledge and experience, networking opportunities across Europe, new commercial relations or markets abroad.

The exchange of experience takes place during a stay with the experienced 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 stay is partially funded by the European Union.
