The Erasmus for Young Entrepreneurs programme, funded by the European Commission, offers those in the early stages of a start up to spend three or four months in an overseas business.
The programme will also give North East businesses the opportunity to welcome a European entrepreneur to work with them.
Louise Hardy, BIC’s business development manager, described her excitement regarding the venture: “The programme is fundamentally about breaking down barriers, encouraging businesses to cross borders and adopt an entrepreneurial mind-set, something the BIC has endorsed for over 20 years.”
Thanks to the European Commission’s involvement, companies involved will benefit from broadening their network of contacts and a greater wealth of fresh, alternative ideas.
