Erasmus for Young Entrepreneurs

Erasmus for Young Entrepreneurs

Are you thinking about setting up your own business or are you already a successful entrepreneur? If so, Erasmus for Young Entrepreneurs could be for you! http://www.erasmus-entrepreneurs.eu/

Erasmus for Young Entrepreneurs is a pilot project initiated by the European Union (EU). It aims at helping new entrepreneurs to acquire relevant skills for managing a small or medium-sized enterprise (SMEs) by spending time in a business in another EU country. It contributes to improving their know-how and fosters cross-border transfers of knowledge and experience between entrepreneurs.
