Skillman Exchange Programme
for Advanced Manufacturing SMEs
Skillman.eu offers its members the opportunity to benefit from the EYE – Erasmus for Young Entrepreneurs programme thanks to the agreement and cooperation with the consortium EM Entrepreneurs Mobility.
Erasmus for Young Entrepreneurs is the programme launched by the EU to provide promising European entrepreneurs with the necessary skills to start and/or successfully run a small business in Europe.
The EM Consortium consists of ten international organisations responsible for distributing the EYE grants.
The intermediary organisations of the EM consortium are based in Europe and are responsible for promoting a profitable exchange between young entrepreneurs and host entrepreneurs.
They provide comprehensive support to young entrepreneurs who wish to take advantage of the EYE grant, including help with the preparation of the business plans required for the online application.
The new entrepreneurs benefit from on-the-job training in a small or medium-sized enterprise in another of the participating countries. This facilitates the successful launch of a business or strengthens new businesses. They also benefit from access to new markets, international cooperation and potential opportunities to work with business partners abroad.
Host entrepreneurs benefit from the fresh ideas of a motivated new entrepreneur for their business. They may have special skills or knowledge in an area that the new entrepreneurs do not have, which could also complement them. Most host entrepreneurs have enjoyed the experience so much that they decide to host other new entrepreneurs as well.
To participate in the Programme, young entrepreneurs must draft their business plans and provide them to the EU Commission.
The EM consortium supports its new entrepreneurs by implementing Kabada, which is based on artificial intelligence and has been selected as the official Skillman.eu tool for entrepreneurial learning.
