“Erasmus for Young Entrepreneurs” is a project financed by the European Union. It aims at helping aspiring entrepreneurs to acquire relevant skills for managing and growing a company by working with an experienced entrepreneur in another EU country for 1 to 6 months.
If you have a clear business idea and if you would like to set up your own business in the future, talk to us at Malta Enterprise, the “Erasmus for Young Entrepreneurs” might be the programme for you!

Spend this summer a number of weeks with an experienced entrepreneur, get a stipend from the EU, and learn all the relevant soft skills to be able to run your business!
