Second wave competition now open! Submit your application until 7 December

Monday, November 10, 2014

CONNECT is an entrepreneurship programme coordinated by EBN and supported 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€!).

Who can participate?
New entrepreneurs: Promising entrepreneurs from all over Europe who are planning to start a business, based on a viable Business Plan, or who have started their own business recently. No specific sector required!

After the first wave competition launched in June this year, 25 entrepreneurs from all over Europe with innovative business ideas and operating in different sectors of activity were selected. First European entrepreneurs are already in Brazil, getting positive results for their business!

The second wave competition for European new entrepreneurs is now open until 7 December 2014! Don't miss the opportunity to CONNECT your business with Brazil. The application is easy and quick: the registration form should be filled in here and should include a Business Plan.
