Jānis Berzins (Latvia/Real Estate) and Jesper Bjerring Ørum (Denmark/Energy)

Jānis Berzins (NE): “If you are still thinking about applying for Erasmus for Young Entrepreneurs, answer two questions – what is the worst that can happen and what is the best that can happen as a result of the exchange? This way you can quickly come to the conclusion that there is no reason not to try this program yourself and look into the global marketplace to bring your ideas to light with the help of an experienced entrepreneur.” Weiterlesen …

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. I saw many similarities but mainly I learned many things on how they work that I can use for my own company in the future. Basically, that is what this program is about, putting together entrepreneurs so they both can learn and help each other. So I totally encourage other entrepreneurs that seek for learning and also wide their network to do this program. Weiterlesen …

Philipp Gruber (Germany/Architecture) and Nuno Brandão Costa (Portugal/Architecture)

It was a great experience to participate in the EYE programme and to work with Nuno Brandão Costa. I received insights about low-cost housing in Portugal and learned efficient working methods in the design and execution process of architecture projects. The programme gave me the possibility to experiment in the unknown context of research work in architecture and I seek to implement this new skill to my future practice. Weiterlesen …

Barbara Vogrinčič (Slovenia/Health) and Jasmina Apostolović (Netherlands/Health)

Barbara Vogrinčič (NE): “Information “How to run your own business” I might get during studying management books. But to see a passionate and successful entrepreneur how he/she can manage everything to run smoothly, it is needed to be on the front-line. For a new entrepreneur it is very important to have connections and opportunities, which can help establish an enterprise and later on make it successful. EYE is one of the opportunities, which is good to exploit. Not only because of first-hand knowledge, but also because of business ties with companies abroad.” Weiterlesen …

Kristina Nikolovska (Slovenia/Robotics and automation industry) and Stefan Zeidler (Germany/Robotics and automation industry)

Kristina Nikolovska (NE): “I am very happy I got to do this program. I have gained a lot of knowledge about the robotic industry and how to run a start-up. Also, I got to improve technical skills and programming skills. I would encourage young people who are excited about becoming entrepreneurs and want to gain skill that they will never be able to gain otherwise to participate in the program. I had a very positive experience with the HE and the team because they accepted me as a part of the team. They divided the tasks and shared knowledge with me from the first day. Participating in the program was one of the best decisions I could make after graduating. With the knowledge I gained I feel more prepared now for the industry and for running my own business.” Weiterlesen …

Sergejs Andrejevs (Latvia/Education and training services) and Maria Grazia Pirina (Italy/Education and training services)

Sergejs (NE): “This program gave me the opportunity I would not get in another way. Six months that I spent in exchange was the biggest learning opportunity in my life to gain knowledge, skills, attitude regarding my entrepreneurial idea.
There were many things that I learnt during my exchange, but the biggest and most important for me was to learn how to create an educational program and deliver it to target groups. Other learnings were how to write and implement projects, how to lead people around you, how to be an entrepreneur, etc.
There was a never-ending learning process, which will not end by ending the exchange, but will go further with the next months, years by practicing knowledge, skills and attitudes that I got during my exchange.” Weiterlesen …
