Funded opportunity for European Entrepreneurs in Brazil - last chance to apply!

Want to spend a few weeks in Brazil exploring business opportunities for your startup?


Apply now to CONNECT and get local support from an experienced mentor! The stay in Brazil is partly financed by the European Commission.

CONNECT is an entrepreneurship programme coordinated by EBN, targeted at European new entrepreneurs starting up businesses with the potential to grow internationally (no specific sector required). Selected entrepreneurs will embark on a fulfilling business exchange scheme in Brazil, where they will have the opportunity to work alongside and learn from an experienced host entrepreneur.

CONNECT entrepreneurs benefit from different learning opportunities. They may be hosted either in a successful enterprise, shadowing the work of an experienced entrepreneur, or in a top business incubator, connecting with other startups & potential partners. You decide what's best for your business!

CONNECT's 1st & 2nd waves are underway with great success. Sign up now for the 3rd wave.

Deadline for submitting applications: 22 March 2015 
Selection and matching: March - April 2015 
Travelling period: April - June 2015 (min: 1 month; max: 3 months)

Limited number of extra places available! Whilst the competition is open until 22 March, applications will be considered as they come in. Candidates are welcome to identify their own host entrepreneur in Brazil (automatic matching in case of selection).
