What previous participants say about Erasmus

“We have gain larger knowledge on the opportunities inside Erasmus Plus and other European Funding. We have also gained in big parts from Barbara's large network and experience on how to deal with partners and external partners from other countries than our own.”

     - Tobias Harpsøe, TIK Volley


"We have achieved a learning platform, where we interacts with the projects in the same way and with shared interest. Matteo has contributed with detailed designs and individual responsibility.  We have expanded our field of tenders from northern Europe only to projects in Italy, e.g. the tender for a dwelling area in Bologna."

     - Morten Gehl, Everyday studio 

About the program

Erasmus for Young Entrepreneurs is your chance to get fresh perspectives on your business venture. Through the program, you will be partnered with a young would-be entrepreneur, who will follow your everyday work, and bring new insight into your business and possibly new opportunities.  

As a host entrepreneur, you can benefit from fresh ideas from a motivated new entrepreneur on your business. He may have specialized skills or knowledge in an area you do not master, which could also complement yours. Most host entrepreneurs enjoyed the experience so much that they decide to host other new entrepreneurs afterwards.

It is really a win-win collaboration whereby both of you can also discover new European markets or business partners, different ways of doing business.

On the longer-term, you will benefit from wide networking opportunities, and, possibly, decide to continue your collaboration, possibly as long-term business partners (e.g. joint ventures, sub-contracting activities, contractor-supplier relationships, etc).



If you are planning to expand your business internationally, this program is right tool for you to decrease the risk.

     - You will have a chance to learn about foreign markets from “native” new entrepreneur
     - Young entrepreneur can help you to develop your network abroad
     - You will have possibility to conduct market research together with new entrepreneur
     - Through the exchange you can expand your cultural awareness about the foreign markets
