The Erasmus for Young Entrepreneurs Program is a cross-border exchange program that gives new or prospective entrepreneurs the opportunity to learn from experienced entrepreneurs who run small businesses in other participating countries.
In 2023, the European Commission launched a special invitation only for Ukrainian entrepreneurs. Within this invitation, the Chamber of Commerce and Industry – Stara Zagora launched its new project EYE4UA. This inclusive project empowers Ukrainian citizens to revitalize their business environment. Emphasizing the social economy and technological innovation, EYE4UA promotes sustainability and flexibility. With a focus on environmental and digital transition, it connects new entrepreneurs (NE) from Ukraine and host entrepreneurs (HE) from the EU and 13 other countries.
The exchange of experience takes place during a stay with an experienced entrepreneur who helps the young entrepreneur acquire the skills necessary to run a small business. The benefits for the host entrepreneur are expressed in new perspectives for developing one’s own business and the possibility of establishing cooperation with foreign partners or getting to know new markets. The stay is partially financed with funds from the European Union. Whether you are a new or a very experienced entrepreneur, the program can offer enormous added value to your business: possible benefits include the exchange of knowledge and experience, contacts and cooperation throughout Europe, establishing new commercial relations or finding international markets.
Application and participation in the program are free.
