Erasmus for Young Entrepreneurs

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 provides you with the opportunity to share experiences and work with new entrepreneurs at your own company base with exchanges lasting for between one and six ​months.​​

  • ​​Tap into the knowledge of other European markets and develop international contacts
  • Work with a serious, motivated new entrepreneur with fresh ideas
  • Find innovative solutions to improve your business and discover potential cooperation opportunities

You can take part in the programme as a host entrepreneur if:

  • ​​You are a permanent resident in an EU country
  • You ar​e the owner of a small or medium-sized enterprise or responsible for entrepreneurship at board level
  • You have been running your own company for several years
  • You are willing to share your knowledge and experience with a new entrepreneur and act as a mentor​

Once you have completed the application and get accepted for the programme, a local contact point in your country will help you find a new entrepreneur that matches your requirements. The entrepreneur will spend time in your company contributing to its development, while you will share entrepreneurial experience. This is a personal commitment you cannot delegate to someone else.
