Erasmus for Entrepreneurs

 We have this week hosted our first meeting on Erasmus for Entrepreneurs in collaboration with Koperativi Malta. The meeting proved highly interesting for the members who attended and after a significant request from those who did not make it, another one will be organised.

The programme can be of benefit to entrepreneurs who are already established and are interested in hosting another entrepreneur in their field, an established enterprise wanting to broaden its line of business by gaining first hand experience in a foreign company in its same line, and a new entrepreneur seeking experience by being hosted in an enterprise in his line of interest.

How does the programme work?

New Entrepreneurs or entrepreneurs seeking to widen the line of their business travel to another EU country and spend time working with an experienced entrepreneur in his enterprise.

The matching of the new entrepreneurs with the host entrepreneurs is carried out with the help of bodies coordinating the project. New entrepreneurs can however choose by themselves in which companies they want to be hosted.

Sufficient financial assistance will be granter for the travelling entrepreneur who would be travelling for a minimum of 1 month.
