EYE Entrepreneur of the Decade Awards- Submissions now open! »

The EYE Entrepreneur of the Decade Awards aims to award the most exemplary EYE new entrepreneur (NE) and host entrepreneur (HE) for the past 10 years, with outstanding stories that demonstrate the effect of the programme on their business activities.

To apply for the award, any new/host entrepreneur who has taken part in a completed exchange in the programme in the period 2009-2018 can submit an application for the awards, based on a one-page essay on "Reason(s) why Erasmus for Young Entrepreneurs made me a better entrepreneur”. 

The application form needs to be sent in electronic format (PDF) to eyeawards@erasmus-entrepreneurs.eu by Thursday, 25 October.

It will then be assessed by panels consisting of currently active Intermediary Organisations from the Erasmus for Young Entrepreneurs programme, European Commission, the Executive Agency for Small and Medium-Sized Enterprises (EASME) and the EYE Support Office in order to select the 3 NE and 3 HE finalists. All finalists will be invited to attend the EYE Entrepreneur of the Decade Awards event in in Brussels in March 2019, where they will need to pitch in 5 mins their story to the audience who will, in turn, vote for the winners: the best new and the best host entrepreneur.

Note that only finalists will be contacted with further information on their applications (approx. timing for selection of finalists: December 2018-January 2019).

Eligibility

  1. The applicant must have taken part in a successful exchange in the Erasmus for Young Entrepreneurs programme that has ended by the submission deadline.
  2. The applicant must demonstrate the impact of the programme on his/her business. This means that if the applicant was an aspiring entrepreneur when he/she participated in the programme, he/she must have now started a business (even if in initial stages).
  3. The application and the pitch by the finalist must be done in English, therefore applicants must be fluent in the language.
