From the UK to Italy – Sewing away

Amparo is a new entrepreneur who is full of ideas and who brings her creativity to life by designing and making dresses.

She started an Etsy shop to showcase her creations and sell some of her cherished garments.

Life as an entrepreneur, especially when starting, is not necessarily straightforward as there are so many aspects to get to grips with. Entrepreneurship is the ultimate lifelong learning obstacle course… Working with and learning from experienced business people might make your road that much smoother. Amparo thought so and by registering with the Erasmus for Young Entrepreneurs programme embarked in a journey of business skills development by doing an exchange with a small company based in the North of Italy.

The programme supports her stay with a monthly grant and gives her time to learn and develop skills as well as get mentoring from a committed host who in return gets a very positive and motivated person looking and bringing ideas into their business.

Amparo gives us an insight into her first week’s exchange. She is a busy lady and the most important is that she develops her business acumen with her host so this might or might not be a regular update…

Anyway, very interesting so far:
