Erasmus Exchange Trip To Ourense For Social Entrepreneurs!
(March 4th – March 11th 2017)
We at LBP were delighted to take 17 young aspiring social entrepreneurs to travel and spend 7 days in Ourense, Northern Spain. The exchange took place from Saturday 4th March to 11th March 2017 under the Erasmus project.
OBJECTIVES OF THE PROJECT:
We originally got involved with this fantastic opportunity because we wanted to help:
Promote the mobility of young entrepreneurs in order to foster initiatives of social entrepreneurship among qualified young people.
To assist and help turn social business ideas into reality, by offering the candidates an accelerated free business support and mentoring package.
To allow candidates to develop a better understanding of managing a social enterprise through this exchange.
It was a fantastic experience for all involved, with many personal and professional connections being developed. Extremely positive feedback from all those involved has made us eager for another similar exchange opportunity to take place.
With the talk now being about those in Ourense travelling to London!
