Do you have a great business idea?

Take part in Erasmus for Young Entrepreneurs  and broaden your horizons!

If you are just starting out in the world of business, you could benefit from a one- to three-month work placement in another European company, learning from an experienced entrepreneur in your sector.

It’s not just for students: the programme is open to anyone between the ages of 18 and 65, with less than 3 years of business experience.

If you have not yet started setting up your business, help from a seasoned entrepreneur could be the key to getting your idea off the ground.

How does it work?

New Entrepreneurs may travel to another European country* for a work placement in a company of their choosing. Placements usually last one to three months, and are supported by grant payments of up to €1,100 per month. Click here for a table of grant aid available per country.  

New Entrepreneurs must be between 18 and 65 years of age, and living in Ireland. They are either firmly planning to start a business, based on a viable business plan; or have started their own business within the last 3 years;
