The programme is funded by the European Commission and operates in all the participating countries through the cooperation of local contact centres working in the business support sector (Chambers of Commerce, start-up support centres, business incubators, etc.). Their activities are coordinated at European level by the Programme Support Office.

The programme helps aspiring entrepreneurs to acquire the skills needed to start and/or successfully manage a small business in Europe. New entrepreneurs learn and exchange knowledge and business ideas with consolidated entrepreneurs, who host them and work together for a period of 1 to 6 months. The programme is co-funded by the European Commission.

It offers the opportunity for on-the-job training experience at an SME located in another country taking part in the programme. This will help aspiring entrepreneurs to strengthen the bases they need to start or develop a new business.
