Vadym Spirin, a Ukrainian entrepreneur, faced adversity when he had to flee to Lithuania due to Russia's invasion of Ukraine. He harbored dreams of establishing his own WordPress website development company but lacked real-world projects. His turning point came with the Erasmus for Young Entrepreneurs programme. In Lithuania, he teamed up with Virginija Liaudanskienė, an entrepreneur who transitioned from dentistry to owning her dental clinic. This partnership provided Vadym with invaluable mentorship, igniting his entrepreneurial journey and offering a fresh start towards success. Vadym's journey epitomizes the resilience of young entrepreneurs. Through the EYE programme, he not only found mentorship but also a cross-border network of support showing that entrepreneurial dreams can flourish even in the face of adversity.

Vadym and Virginia's collaboration spanned 5 transformative months. During this period, Vadym immersed himself in the world of Virginija's dental clinic business in Lithuania. He delved deep into the intricacies of advertising, business strategies, and the essentials of launching a successful venture. Together Vadym and Virginia embarked on a journey of innovation culminating in the development of a cutting-edge website for the dental clinic. They explored the nuances of SEO and harnessed the power of social media advertising. Vadym's experience was not only enriching but pivotal in shaping his entrepreneurial aspirations. This partnership was akin to a business school, where Vadym acquired invaluable insights into the Lithuanian market and its intricacies. It allowed him to nurture his entrepreneurial spirit equipping him with the knowledge and tools required to initiate his own business venture.

Participation in the Erasmus for Young Entrepreneurs programme proved to be mutually beneficial for Vadym and Virginia. Vadym gained invaluable knowledge in web development and cybersecurity, laying a solid foundation for his entrepreneurial journey. Their collaboration resulted in a revamped website for the "Arinija" dental clinic, showcasing the practical application of Vadym's newfound skills. In return, Virginia acquired expertise in social media management, advertising and SEO – essential tools for promoting her updated website. This exchange of skills and experiences strengthened their partnership with plans for continued collaboration and joint projects. The program not only enriched Vadym's entrepreneurial prospects but also equipped Virginia with digital marketing proficiency, making it a rewarding experience for both the new and the host entrepreneur.
