Ana Korošec (Slovenia/Education) and Noelia Villarino Miño (Spain/Education and training services)

I think that Erasmus for Young Entrepreneurs is a perfect programme where you could obtain new knowledge and gain experience for a better quality of your work or to develop your company. It is also an opportunity to go abroad and learn how the experts are dealing with the different challenges. I learned a lot about how to be creative and find solutions in unexpected situations.

Natalia López Merchán (Spain/Tourism) and Willem Sodderland (Netherlands/Food industry)

After some experience in running a start-up for two years, I had the opportunity to land into a 5 years old start-up.

So I totally encourage other entrepreneurs that seek for learning and also wide their network to do this program. Weiterlesen …

Alexandra Alexandru (Romania/Entertainment) and Christoph Gschier (Austria/IT and communication services)

From Christoph’s point of view, it is essential to know the language of the country. Although a lot of communication happens in English, the working language in his company is still German. Therefore, that might hamper an exchange in some stages as a lot of information is given in passing. The exchange became a very fruitful one and Christoph was happy to gain new insights from Alexandra, to have started new business concepts and at least helped her with her future business.

How did HE Urška Starc-Peceny profit from the Erasmus for Young Entrepreneurs programme? Supported by Tjaša’s design skills, it was possible to visualize concepts in a very innovative way. She was able to listen, consult and finally transform an idea into a professional-looking graphic, a process to an infographic. A good quality visual presentation made it easier to communicate their ideas to the public. As a passionate communicator, Urška profited from Tjaša’s fresh ideas and perspectives in relation to ongoing projects. Weiterlesen …
