Over €70,000 in EU funding remains available under the Erasmus for Young Entrepreneurs Business Exchange Programme, according to Dublin to Chamber of Commerce.

The programme provides grants of up to €6,600 for early stage entrepreneurs in Ireland to help them get their businesses of the ground. It is co-managed in Ireland by Dublin Chamber and Dun Laoghaire-Rathdown Local Enterprise Office.

Attendees at an event held in Dublin to celebrate the second anniversary of Dublin Chamber’s involvement in the programme, heard that that grants totalling €60,000 have been given to Irish entrepreneurs over the past two years.

“Erasmus for Young Entrepreneurs is a fantastic initiative that gives participants a unique opportunity to learn from experienced colleagues so that their business ideas can become a reality,” said Aebhric McGibney, Dublin Chamber's director of public and international affairs.

“Erasmus funding can be used by an entrepreneur intending to start a company or having just started one, to travel abroad and work beside an established entrepreneur for between one and six months. Host entrepreneurs also benefit from the exchange, by profiting from the visiting business person's knowledge, energy and talent.”

The Erasmus programme is open to anyone between the ages of 18 and 65. Full details are available here.
