Would you like to set up your own business? Do you want to try yourself as an entrepreneur to see if it is something for you? Erasmus for Young Entrepreneurs is your chance to make it happen this summer!

The Erasmus for Young Entrepreneurs programme, powered by the European Union and Startups.be, is designed to encourage entrepreneurship across Europe.

It gives aspiring or freshly-started entrepreneurs a chance to spend a month (or even more!) abroad learning from an experienced entrepreneur while getting to know the market and obtaining valuable business insights.

Imagine, how cool would it be to work for a month in sunny Lisbon or get a taste of the Nordic business scene. On top of that, you will receive up to a €1000 grant!

Sounds awesome, but what do you need to participate?

It is often said that a CV is a passport to employment. Not in this case! Still you need to provide your detailed up-to-date curriculum vitae, where you include your skills, qualifications and up-to-date experience.

Motivation, as the desire to achieve your goals, is key. It is also one of the core aspects of Erasmus for Young Entrepreneurs that aims at supporting entrepreneurial-minded people.

A business plan is simply a resume for your proposed business. It should describe the product or service you (would like to) offer. It can be everything, ranging from opening a coffee shop to running a tech startup.

And finally, you should be willing to learn, while also making your skills and competencies available to your host entrepreneur. Who knows, maybe you can become business partners?

What do you get?

  • A month of entrepreneurial adventure & great business experience
  • A grant of up to €1000
  • Support in finding the right experienced entrepreneur who will coach you for a month
  • Support throughout the program
