Cas d´èxit del Programa Erasmus per Joves Emprenedors/es
L´Ajuntament de Sabadell, a través de Promoció Econòmica de Sabadell és Organització Intermediaria del Programa Erasmus per Joves emprenedors/es.
El programa Erasmus per joves emprenedors/es és un programa d´intercanvis transnacionals que ofereix a persones emprenedores novelles i persones que desitgen crear la seva propia empresa, l´oportunitat d´aprendre de persones empresàries experimentades que dirigeixen petites empreses en altres països participants. Les persones emprenedores reben un suport financer per part de la Unió Europea per dur a terme les estades.
Recentment la Montserrat Ros de l´entitat probens.org ha acollit a l´Ioan, un emprenedor Romanès durant 4 mesos. En Ioan Pacurar i la Montserrat ens expliquen la seva experiència un cop finalitzada l´estada.
Ioan, parlan´s de tu i de per quin motiu et vas registrar al Programa Erasmus.
My name is Ioan and I am a young person who wants to become an entrepreneur. I was born in Romania where I had my education and life for over 20 years, I have also lived in Denmark for one year as an Erasmus Student and now I am a participant in the Erasmus for Young Entrepreneurs program. I have joined this program because I want to become a social entrepreneur and I needed a good opportunity to learn more about a business in the social sector. When I came to Barcelona the idea was to build an NGO or Social Enterprise for expats around the world. The website should contribute to the welfare, development and social integration of both individuals and groups through an online community, which helps to their adjustment in the new social environment.
Quines activitats has dut a terme durant la teva estada a Barcelona amb la Montse
With the help of Montse (Host Entrepreneur) I have the opportunity to learn many different things. Every week she took care that I would attend a conference or a seminar in different social or entrepreneurial subjects. Also, she provided me with access to Spanish Lessons through Probens. together with her I have attended many meetings for different projects of the organization where I could really understand what is the role of the organization and how they achieve success. We also constantly have one on one meetings where we discuss ways to improve our businesses. Other activities include building a survey to measure members engagement in the organization and ways to receive more engagement from their behalf, making a visual presentation of the organization, helping with the translation of different documents, social activities etc.
Quins són els beneficis obtinguts de la teva estada?
Montse helped me build a network of people interested in the same business field, I understand better how a social organization works, what are the legal aspects, what methods to use for marketing in the social environment, what are the methods of funding, what is the structure of the organization, how many different projects can work together for the same purpose and also now I have a clearer idea than before on how to approach opening a business. I am more prepared and more confident with the help of this exchange. I have also learned a little Spanish which is a very valuable skill for my everyday life in Spain and also for understanding better the people and culture. Other benefits include a new social and cultural environment which everyday stimulates and opens my mind, lots of sun and a great mentor.
El Ioan ja ha tornat al seu pais on esperem que l´experiència viscuda li sigui d´utilitat per iniciar el seu projecte emprenedor.
