Success stories

“The conduction of the tasks I did during my stay has provided me with a lot of knowledge and experience, valuable for my own business endeavor. In relation to the development of my own business proposition, I have worked on the creation and establishment of Smedegaard Consulting, a consultancy company with an emphasis on quality and customizability.”

     - Rasmus Bach, Smedegaard Consulting


“Since my participation in the programme, I have started my own business, called www.islaenderdyrlaegen.dk. The knowledge I gain during my stay has definitely helped me to get a rolling start with my own business.

The Erasmus for Young Entrepreneurs programme was a great experience for me, and I can only recommend it if other young entrepreneurs want to start up their own.”

     - Melina Dahl, Islaenderdyrlaegen


About the program

Erasmus for Young Entrepreneurs helps you as an aspiring entrepreneur with the skills necessary to start and/or successfully run a small business in Europe. You get the chance to gather and exchange knowledge and business ideas with an experienced entrepreneur, with whom you will stay and collaborate for a period of 1 to 6 months.

It is really a win-win collaboration whereby 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).
