Erasmus for Young Entrepreneurs (EYE) is a cross-border exchange programme which gives new or aspiring entrepreneurs the chance to learn from experienced entrepreneurs running small businesses in other Participating Countries. New entrepreneurs gather and exchange knowledge and business ideas with an experienced entrepreneur abroad, with whom collaborate for a period of 1 to 6 months. Financial support is provided to new entrepreneurs by the programme to
contribute towards travel and subsistence costs.
Initiated by the European Commission in 2009, the programme seeks to reinforce entrepreneurial attitudes and equip individuals with skills and competences invaluable for their future or newly established business. It also helps host entrepreneurs reach new markets and develop their business thanks to innovative ideas and techniques which can be materialised into new products or services.
And what is BUPNET’s part in this programme? We are working as an intermediary organisation (IO), which means that we are your local contact point in Germany. We help you with your application, help you establish a successful relationship with a suitable entrepreneur as well as providing you with all the answers to your questions. If you want to learn more about EYE, need some help or have any questions about the programme, don’t hesitate to contact us. In the last years we accompanied and arranged over 150 successful exchanges.
You can find more information about the project in the factsheet or contact us directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
