For these three new destinations, 120 exchanges addressed to new entrepreneurs resident in the 28 European Union countries have been planned. As for all the other destinations, even for the exchanges in these three countries, a financial support is provided in order to support the new entrepreneur during the stay abroad. Moreover, travel cost reimbursement varies according to the destination country. Exchanges in the Unites States, Israel and Singapore can last from 1 to 3 months.
The StartUp2- Start, Run & Grown your Business project implements the Erasmus for Young Entrepreneurs programme. It gives new entrepreneurs or those who have started their own business within the last three years the chance to learn from experienced entrepreneurs abroad in order to strengthen the skills they need to develop your business and help you to start your business through an exchange of 1-6 months financed by the European Union.
With this programme, the host entrepreneur has the chance to get input from the fresh ideas, energy and new skills of a motivated new entrepreneur, to acquire knowledge of new markets, to develop new international contacts and decide to continue your collaboration, possibly as long-term business partners.
Host entrepreneurs list for USA, Israel and Singapore will be available from May 2018 in EYE IT Tool and the new entrepreneurs interested in an exchange in one of these three new destinations will be able to search for their ideal entrepreneurs here starting from this month.
