CONNECT:Exchange programme for European Entrepreneurs in Brazil >>Applications open until 7th December<<

24 November 2014

CONNECT ( is an entrepreneurship programme coordinated by EBN with the support of SPI and co-funded by the European Commission, targeted at European new entrepreneurs starting up businesses with the potential to grow internationally.

Selected entrepreneurs will embark on a fulfilling exchange scheme in Brazil, where they will have the opportunity to work alongside and learn from an experienced host entrepreneur, either in a successful enterprise or in a business incubator, during a period of generally 3 months. This is a win-win collaboration, through which the entrepreneurs will exchange knowledge and ideas and discover new markets and business partners. The stay will be partly financed by the European Commission (up to 2500!).

The competition for European new entrepreneurs is open until 7th December 2014. The application is easy and quick: the registration form should be filled in here and should include a Business Plan.
