Erasmus for Young Entrepreneurs is a cross-border exchange programme that gives new or aspiring entrepreneurs the chance to learn from experienced entrepreneurs running small businesses in other Participating Countries. The exchange of experience takes place during a stay with the experienced entrepreneur, which helps the new entrepreneur acquire the skills needed to run a small firm.

GROWING-UP II aims to achieve the following specific objectives:

  • Involve at least 100 entrepreneurs that want to start a business;
  • Facilitate exchanges of best practices and experience for new entrepreneurs (NEs) by means of working with an experienced entrepreneur in another EU country;
  • 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 can contribute 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;
  • Create a solid business network meant to support the creation and development of new business, as well as the internationalization of the already existent businesses.

Since February 2014 JO Consulting is one of the Local Contact Point through the project GROWING-UP II, which supports new entrepreneurs allowing them to successfully start and develop their new business ideas through exchange placement at experienced entrepreneur who would like to expand to other EU country.
