Period of exchange: 09/2009 until 10/2009
Duration of exchange: 1 month

New entrepreneur Luis Garcia Ruiz from Albacete had just started up Clickalba Informatica when he heard about the Erasmus for Young Entrepreneurs programme. After his application was successful, Luis soon made his way to join the experienced entrepreneur, Katia Marchesin from ADL Ingegneria Informatica. Luis spent four weeks in Italy at Katia´s software engineering company.

Luis worked progressively with Katia on various tasks: he learnt how to set up functional distribution channels; he developed practical managerial skills and a new business plan. Luis also met up with some potential business partners. Both entrepreneurs shared information about their national markets as well as discussing at length the possibilities of expanding their business activities abroad.

Both entrepreneurs were extremely satisfied with the exchange and have remained in contact for future collaboration possibilities. Katia has since invited another new entrepreneur to stay at her company.
