GYMNASIUM V is a project under program Erasmus for Young Entrepreneurs financed by the European Commission.  Erasmus for Young Entrepreneurs is a cross-border exchange programme which gives new entrepreneurs the chance to learn from experienced entrepreneurs running small businesses in other European Union countries. It operates with the help of the local contact points. Bulgaria Economic Forum is one of the contact points for Bulgaria as part of Gymnasium V project.

Some of the key objectives of the GYMNASIUM V Project are:

- to support New entrepreneurs (NEs) in the start-up phase by providing them with specific and high quality information;

- to improve and consolidate the business communities created within the past EYE Projects;

- to enhance market access and international business cooperation;

-  to give a concrete opportunity to the entrepreneurs wishing to internationalize;

- to enhance inter-cultural learning by reducing the gap due to geographical and linguistic barriers among EU entrepreneurs.


Who can participate in the program:

  • New entrepreneurs, firmly planning to set up their own business or have already started one within the last three years.  
  • Experienced entrepreneurs (HEs) who own or manage a Small or Medium-Sized Enterprise in the EU.
