Last week, Leticia Lucero from the International Affairs Commission in YEB and Ana Horta, YEB’s president, attend an event organized by Madrid Network and Innogate to Europe to introduce the EU program ”Erasmus for Young Entrepreneurs – EYE”.
As it is said on their website:
Erasmus for Young Entrepreneurs is a cross-border exchange programme which gives new or aspiring entrepreneurs the chance to learn from experienced entrepreneurs running small businesses in other Participating Countries.
The exchange of experience takes place during a stay with the experienced entrepreneur, which helps the new entrepreneur acquire the skills needed to run a small firm. The host benefits from fresh perspectives on his/her business and gets the opportunities to cooperate with foreign partners or learn about new markets.
By this way, the new entrepreneur will know by first hand the challenges that a small or medium company is going through and the best way to resolve them.
There aren’t so many entrepreneurs in Science but if you apply to the programme and you don’t find any company which fits you, you can always ask a company to enroll the program and then be accepted in that company. Innogate to Europe can help you with this process.
Last but not least, from YEB we want to promote and spread the word about these programs in order to enhance the Scientific Entrepreneurship.
