Erasmus for Young Entrepreneurs

Erasmus for Young Entrepreneurs

Erasmus for Young Entrepreneurs is a cross-border programme facilitating the exchange of entrepreneurial and management experience. The exchange is implemented by a stay of a newly established or potential entrepreneur with a well-experienced entrepreneur running a small or medium-sized enterprise (SME) in another country.

Since its launch in 2009, the scheme's number of applications from new and host entrepreneurs willing to participate in the programme has constantly increased and currently we have organised over 10,700 exchanges.

Carolina Riccone

On march 2023 I began my 5 months experience as Young Entrepreneur at the NGO LIDOSK. I believe that this experience was extremely valuable for my professional and personal growth and development. Before starting this project, I didn’t know what my talents were and how to channel them in the right direction. Day after day, I could enhance my existing abilities while learning how to face and overcome possible challenges in an international work environment. I also had the possibility to work side by side with people who enriched me as a person and who, eventually, turned out to be good friends. I am extremely grateful to this project because it allowed me to better understand what I want to do in my life, and put me on the right track to reach my objectives. It also allowed me to create new valuable friendship which I hope will span across borders. I would suggest the EYE program to everyone who is searching for a new enriching experience, hoping that it would turn out enlightening for them as it was for me.
