Erasmus for Young Entrepreneurs (EYE) is a cross-border exchange program financed by the European Commission 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 Νew entrepreneur (NE), can benefit from on-the-job training in a small or medium-sized enterprise in another participating country. This will ease the successful start of the business or strengthen the new enterprise. The NE can also benefit from access to new markets, international cooperation and potential possibilities for collaboration with business partners abroad.

The Host entrepreneur (HE), can benefit from fresh ideas from a motivated new entrepreneur on his/her business. Most host entrepreneurs enjoyed the experience so much that they decide to host other new entrepreneurs afterwards.

Through EYE a person who is new to entrepreneurship and firmly planning on starting a business can spend some time in one of the 36 participating countries learning from an established entrepreneur in the sector.  Likewise, experienced entrepreneurs can sign up for the program to receive a fresh entrepreneurial mind to give an extra hand in their projects and expand their business.
