What is the ‘Erasmus for Young Entrepreneurs’ programme?

Erasmus for Young Entrepreneurs, is a European exchange programme, initiated by the European Union to assist in the growth of new and aspiring entrepreneurs. Specifically, young people are given the opportunity to work in a small or medium-sized enterprise (SME), to develop and strengthen their skills and receive guidance on how to start and/or run successfully their own small business. The programme works in an exchange basis, with the new entrepreneurs attending a company located in one of the other Participating Countries (EU27 & other countries part of the COSME programme). The exchange period is between 1 to 6 months, during which the Young Entrepreneurs will be able to receive training and gain practical knowledge, by working closely with an experienced (host) entrepreneur. Simultaneously, the host entrepreneur will be able to work with a motivated new entrepreneur with fresh ideas.

*The programme is financed by the European Commission: new entrepreneurs receive financial assistance from the European Union.

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.

A win-win collaboration!
