Erasmus for Young Entrepreneurs (EYE) within the “EYE-SEE-P 2017”

March 14, 2017 to December 20, 2019

Erasmus for Young Entrepreneurs (EYE) is a cross-border EU-funded exchange programme which enables young and experienced entrepreneurs to work together to acquire and improve the knowledge that is needed to develop their business ideas, establish own enterprises or grow the participating countries.

It furthermore aims to enhance entrepreneurship, internationalisation and competitiveness of new and established micro and small enterprises within the EU and in other participating countries.

The purpose of the EYE program is experience exchange between new and established entrepreneurs. During a period of 1 to 6 months, a young or aspiring entrepreneur will have an opportunity to stay at a host’s work place in participating country and gain a valuable experience and relevant skills in starting or managing a small or medium-sized business. The stay is partly financed by the European Commission.

Whereas the host entrepreneur benefits from fresh perspectives on his/her business and gets the opportunities to cooperate with foreign partners or learn about new markets.

Whether you are a new or highly experienced entrepreneur, the programme can offer strong added value to your business: possible benefits include exchange of knowledge and experience, networking opportunities across Europe and beyond, new commercial relations or markets abroad.


  • New entrepreneurs who firmly plan to set up their own business (based on a viable business plan) or have already started one with less than 3 years of total entrepreneurial experience.
  • Experienced entrepreneurs (Host Entrepreneur) who own or manage a Small or Medium-sized Enterprise in one of the Participating Countries for more than 3 years.
