Erasmus for Young Entrepreneurs is an international business exchange programme developed to strengthen business ties across the EU! It’s not just for students: the programme is open to anyone between the ages of 18 and 65 who is interested in starting a business or hosting a talented European entrepreneur.
If you are a business owner, you could host a new and talented entrepreneur from another European country.
If you have less than 3 years of business experience or are planning to start up a business, you could travel as a new entrepreneur.
How does it work?
Host Entrepreneurs will be the owner or manager of an Irish SME** willing to share their knowledge and experience with a new entrepreneur and act as a mentor. Taking on someone from another European country for a short work placement will not cost the Host Entrepreneur, as the New Entrepreneur will be paid their monthly grant allowance for the duration of their stay.
New Entrepreneurs may travel to another European country* for a work placement in a company of their choosing. Placements usually last one to three months, and are supported by grant payments of up to €1,100 per month. Click here for a table of grant aid available per country.
