Erasmus for Young Entrepreneurs | The EU Programme


Erasmus for Young Entrepreneurs is a program funded by the European Union that allows young individuals to collaborate with experienced entrepreneurs.

This programme lets new or hopeful business owners learn from experienced ones in different countries. New entrepreneurs spend time with these experts to gain skills for running a small business. At the same time, the experienced business owner learns new ideas and might find chances to work with people from other countries or discover new markets.

Participants have the chance to work with professionals in 45 different locations across Europe, America, or Asia.

This experience is geared towards enhancing their business skills and it can last between one and six months.

Who can participate in the programme?

This programme is mainly aimed at new entrepreneurs, firmly planning to set up their own business or have already started one within the last three years.

Also, experienced entrepreneurs who own or manage a Small or Medium-Sized Enterprise in one of the Participating Countries can participate.

  • You’re starting or recently started a business in the last 3 years.
  • You live in one of the countries in the program.
  • You show eagerness to work with an experienced entrepreneur from another country.
