ERASMUS FOR YOUNG ENTREPRENEURS IS THE EUROPEAN EXCHANGE PROGRAMME FOR ENTREPRENEURS ACROSS EUROPE.
Employability Town has been successfully selected to continue to act as one of the local contact points to deliver the program across the UK until 2019 with the possibility of continuation to 2021.
Across Europe, there is a growing awareness of the potential of a range of individuals to launch and develop their own commercial or social ventures thereby becoming innovators in their local communities. Entrepreneurship experience is essential not only to shape the mind-sets of European citizens but also to provide the skills, knowledge and attitudes that are central to developing a start-up culture.
We are proud to continue to be one of the local contact points in the UK helping aspiring entrepreneurs, business owners and SMEs to participate in this innovative cross-border collaboration.
At Employability Town we firmly believe that enterprise skills are vital for any career choices whether getting a dream job, successfully sustaining employment or starting your own venture – said Klaudia Mitura- the Founder & Managing Director of Employability Town.
Employability Town has the pleasure to be part of a wider consortium “EYE on Europe” that consists of the following pioneer organisations across Europe:
About the Program:
Erasmus for Young Entrepreneurs is an EU-funded, innovative cross-border exchange that targets two types of entrepreneurs:
- New entrepreneurs, firmly planning to set up their own business or have already started within the last three years. The program allows new entrepreneurs aged 18 plus to undertake a placement abroad for the duration of 1 to 6 months to acquire the skills needed to run a small business as well as test their ideas in practice within the industry.
- Experienced entrepreneurs who own or manage a Small or Medium-Sized Enterprise in one of the Participating Countries for more than 3 years. For business owners it is an opportunity to host within their business new entrepreneurs and therefore to share gained entrepreneurial experience, develop innovative products and services, access new skills and talent, and improve the growth of the company by establishing a partnership in other European markets and finally to increase visibility and prestige of the company through EU press coverage.
Please note that the program does not only apply to young people. “Young” in the context of this program refers to people who have little or no experience in entrepreneurship.
