Prague, Czech republic, 29 years old
Erasmus for Young Entrepreneurs surpassed my expectations. Experience in the Austrian startup company Supersocial helped me to develop not only my business, but also enriched my life and a brought new friendships“
The program is ideal for those who want to expand their business into foreign markets and do not have the right connections, information or experience or for those who want to learn best practises in their field.
I got opportunity to learn very practical information and apply it quickly in practise. I found out about Erasmus for young entrepreneurs through a frond at Vienna´s TEDx Donauinsel conference. Mathias Haas, founder of Supersocial, was one of the organizers and he had participated in the Erasmus for Young Entrepreneurs program in previous years, and recommended we collaborate.
I needed to learn how Facebook and other online media work on order make our project profitable and visible to public. I had also an opportunity to improve my organizational, presentation, communication and language skills, better usage of modern technologies and software (Skype, Cloud, Shared documents, videos, presentations, etc.)
There were days when we works remotely on one project from three different countries.
