Erasmus for Young Entrepreneurs – COLUMBUS 6

Funded by

European Commission DG Enterprise and Industry


February 2014 – January 2016


The programme aims to foster entrepreneurship across Europe, by linking young and aspiring entrepreneurs with experienced entrepreneurs in another member state of the European Union. The New Entrepreneurs (NEs) will gain the necessary experiences to establish their own business and create a portfolio of contacts. On the other hand the Host Entrepreneurs (HEs) will gain new ideas and new perspectives from young and spirited future entrepreneurs.

  1. Finanziaria Ligure per lo Sviluppo Economico FI.L.S.E. SPA in Genova, Italy.

UCL Advances has bursaries for young entrepreneurs who want to go to another European Union Member State to learn from an experienced entrepreneur there. We welcome host entrepreneurs from high growth SMEs in particular, but everybody who fulfils the eligibility criteria can apply. Host entrepreneurs are welcome to register with UCL Advances if they are looking for some new ideas from young and innovative entrepreneurs from across Europe.
