Background information on Erasmus for Young Entrepreneurs

Erasmus for Young Entrepreneurs is a EU-funded cross-border programme facilitating the exchange of entrepreneurial and management experience. The exchange is implemented via the stay of a newly established or potential entrepreneur with a well-experienced entrepreneur running a small or medium-sized enterprise (SME) in another country.

The host benefits from fresh perspectives on their business and gets the opportunities to cooperate with foreign partners or learn about new markets.
