Apply now for a new gE4 in your city!
Take garagErasmus to your city!
The garagErasmus Foundation is looking for enthusiastic, professional, and independent-minded members of the Erasmus Generation to become part of the initiative. We are reaching out to ambitious people who can make garagErasmus in their city a concrete social start-up by launching a local garagErasmus association – a gE4City. These associations will organise local activities and build up a strong network with lots of opportunities for partnerships and growth. The gE4s organise independent events as well as large Meet-ups in airports, engaging former Erasmus around Europe and enabling face-to-face contact with the local business community, recruitment companies, and more. The Foundation helps to get the local association started and connects it to the wider national and European level.
Who can create a gE4?
All members of the Erasmus Generation – all who had a significant study experience abroad – can! The gE4s are open to people with many different backgrounds. The core managing team that wants to set up a new gE4 should demonstrate an entrepreneurial mind-set and have sufficient professional experience. Likewise, ideally it should bring together three former Erasmus, one involved in the world of business and entrepreneurship, one in the local university, and one in the city. Creating a gE4 is based on volunteering and is not a paid job, but offers lots of challenges and opportunities. gE4s are social start-ups, meaning that the more you and your team commit, the greater the potential benefit can become. This includes the active involvement in the build-up of the Foundation’s international public and private partnership and participation in national and Europe-wide events.
