Eurobarometer study on demand for mobility among entrepreneurs Published on: 01/11/2007, Last update: 17/08/2009
More than four-fifths (81%) of young European would-be entrepreneurs say that participation in the planned Erasmus programme could be useful for them. A majority of young (would-be) entrepreneurs are willing to contribute to the financing of their time spent abroad. Nearly two-in-three young entrepreneurs, who have started up a business in the last three years, answered that they are ready to host a young entrepreneur or would-be entrepreneur from another EU Member State. A clear majority of young would-be entrepreneurs (71%) and existing entrepreneurs (70%) would prefer to learn in a micro- or small company (up to 50 employees).
Those are some of the main results of the Flash Eurobarometer on the pilot project "Erasmus for young entrepreneurs".
More detailed information is available in the overall summary report.
