Period of exchange: 01/2014 until 03/2014
Charlotte Angus an entrepreneur from Houghton-Le-Spring (UK) went to Naples last January and spent three months with entrepreneur Claudia Ciotola to broaden her skills learn about new markets as well as has given fresh perspective to the host company.
After taking voluntary redundancy Charlotte went to BIC (the North East Business and Innovation Centre) in May 2013 and by August had started her own business Mulberry Dragonfly which offers bespoke solutions to organisations to engage their teams and unlock performance potential to implement small and large business change.
She discovered Erasmus for Young Entrepreneurs through BIC and applied for the programme shortly after.
As part of her entrepreneurial experience Charlotte conducted research setting up other businesses in other countries providing reports including recruitment contracts taxation and challenges and overall viability.
She also performed translations of documents and reviewed letters and contracts to show the structure was correctly in place.
The knowledge gained has enabled Charlotte to approach companies about potential project ideas.
