Erasmus for Young Entrepreneurs‘ is financed by the European Commission and operates across countries participating with the help of nearly 200 business support organisations, such as Chambers of Commerce, business support organisations or start-up centres.

imagesMore than 1600 exchanges have so far been organised under the Erasmus for Young entrepreneurs programme and some 3200 businesses have been created or expanded.

Since 2009, funded by the European Commission, Erasmus for Young Entrepreneurs enables new entrepreneurs – be they “would-be” entrepreneurs armed with a coherent business plan or entrepreneurs who started their own business in the last three years – to gain valuable skills and experience in a business in another country participating in the Competitiveness and Innovation Programme (CIP).

European Commission Vice President Antonio Tajani will congratulate new entrepreneurs who recently set up their own company. They have opened various types of company, including an enterprise company producing educational game software and promoting tourism using mobile technologies, a strategic consulting firm for technology focused companies, and a jewellery technology network.
