EYE – Erasmus for Young Entrepreneurs is an exchange program funded by the European Union with the participation of Atlantic Cities as a point of contact with France. The program offers opportunities to two types of entrepreneurs: the new ones who do not have any experience, but have a business project and the most experienced with less than 3 years of having created a business project.
Being a permanent resident of one of the 28 countries belonging to the EU including Israel, Singapore and the United States is one of the conditions to participate in the program that lasts from 1 to 6 months.
The opportunities are not only for young entrepreneurs but also for host entrepreneurs, who must be owners or directors of a medium or small company (SME) with a minimum of 3 years, or members of an administrative board. They must play a role of tutors for the Erasmus while benefiting from acquiring an international vision, finding solutions to problems, creating opportunities for cooperation between regions and finding greater motivation.
