Erasmus for Young Entrepreneurs

Are you thinking of starting your own business, or have you recently done so? Or perhaps you are already running a successful business and would like to expand it to new markets, or get fresh ideas?

Erasmus for Young Entrepreneurs could be for you!

Our European business network and financial support can help you exchange knowledge and expand your business.



The European exchange programme for entrepreneurs 

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.

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.

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.











"During these difficult economic times being your own boss is an alternative which is not yet sufficiently exploited. Given the high youth unemployment we wish to stimulate more young start-up entrepreneurs to take the decisive step and set up a new enterprise. By participating in Erasmus for Young Entrepreneurs they gain a unique opportunity to learn from experienced colleagues so that their business ideas can become a reality. The programme helps start-ups and contributes to the internationalisation of small companies which is key to growth and youth employment.”rnAntonio Tajani Vice President of the European Commissionrn

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.
