Introduction

Erasmus for Young Entrepreneurs is a program that allows people who want to start a business or have just started one to travel to another country to work and learn from someone who has more experience in that field. This program helps them learn new skills and get ideas to help them succeed in their own business. It also helps them meet and learn from other business people in different countries with the help if Intermediary Organisations.

There is currently an available call for organisations to participate in the selection process as Intermediary Organisations (IOs) for the implementation of the Erasmus for Young Entrepreneurs program at the local level.

These organisations will be responsible for recruiting entrepreneurs and helping them make the most of the program.

The main goals

The Intermediary Organisations will aim for high-quality results in this proposal call by achieving the following goals:

  1. Building a strong network of new entrepreneurs, host entrepreneurs, and Intermediary Organisations.
  2. Helping new entrepreneurs learn from experienced ones in different countries, making it easier for them to work together.
  3. Supporting the creation of new businesses and partnerships across borders.
  4. Helping host entrepreneurs become more active internationally and innovative.

In particular these organisations will be like local hubs for the program. They’ll work with other groups and governments involved in the exchange program to make sure everything runs smoothly. They’ll get support from the Support Office, which helps manage the program.

The Intermediary Organisations will help new entrepreneurs from certain countries learn and grow by spending time with experienced entrepreneurs in other countries.

At the same time, they’ll also help experienced entrepreneurs find new entrepreneurs to work with, so they can get new ideas, skills, and access to new markets.
