Two passionate entrepreneurs working for youth education thanks to the Erasmus for Young Entrepreneurs program

Paloma Cantero is the co-founder of YouthProAktiv and one of the Spanish Chamber’s hosting entrepreneurs within the Erasmus for Young Entrepreneurs (EYE) program.

This initiative financed by the European Commission, whose objective is to promote the exchange between entrepreneurs from different European countries, put her in contact with Lenka Blichová a brilliant new entrepreneur form Slovakia.

Passionate about leadership and entrepreneurship, six years ago, Paloma created YouthProAktiv with the main aim of supporting proactive individuals ready to invest their talents for the betterment of society and focusing on developing their professional and entrepreneurial skills.

Lenka, after finishing her studies and having different exchange experiences in Spain, was looking for an opportunity less theoretical and more practical about entrepreneurship. Her dream is to create her own company focused on connecting events and non-formal education.

The Erasmus for Young Entrepreneurs has given them the opportunity to pair up in this win-win collaboration whereby both will have the opportunity to work together for 6 months.


¿A normal day at the office?

Lenka and Paloma are working on EU projects related to mobilities, mainly Erasmus + projects.

This has given Lenka not only the possibility to have an insight view on entrepreneurship, but also to practice and improve her writing and analytical skills.

Paloma, as an experienced Host entrepreneur, highlights that the program has helped her to develop her leadership skills and to adapt her management style. She is grateful for the contributions of Lenka and Thomas (the former new entrepreneur she worked with) to YouthProAktiv.


If you had to define the EYE program in few words…

Paloma- I would say opportunity, challenge, and innovation.

Lenka- I would say innovation and improvement.
