The Growing-Up project aims to encourage entrepreneurial initiatives and experience exchange, unlocking the growth potential of micro, small and medium-sized companies, through the facilitation and promotion of partnerships and mobility at European level.

Growing-Up aims to achieve the following specific objectives:

  • Facilitate the creation of 50 to 70 mutually beneficial European relationships between new entrepreneurs and host entrepreneurs;
  • Facilitate the exchange of best practices between new entrepreneurs and host entrepreneurs that enter successful relationships within the project;
  • Offer innovative views, new skills and knowledge to already experienced entrepreneurs (HEs), thanks to an enthusiastic and motivated new entrepreneur – coming from another EU country – who contributes to his/her business;
  • Improve the chances of success for new entrepreneurs that can learn, at an early stage, the art of entrepreneurship and how to overcome business obstacles and also get a better understanding of various business environments.

Through the Erasmus for Young Entrepreneurs programme, the Growing-Up project seeks to capitalize the experience of the consortium and diversify the range of services offered to the young entrepreneurs and potential entrepreneurs in their home countries. The creation and consolidation of a European business network strengthens the institutional capacity of the involved parties, facilitating experience exchange and best practices among the participant enterprises and improving the cooperation between the EU member states, as well as increase the economic competitiveness of the SME sector.
