To show how this Toolkit can be used, ‘a creative momentum project’ is now seeking applications from creative entrepreneurs from Northern Finland for Video Pitching Toolkit – Support for production of a pitching video.  ‘a creative momentum project’ will provide financial support (50% of total costs up to max. €1,500) to creative entrepreneurs from Northern Finland to produce a ‘pitch’ video.

When selected, enterprises will seek quotations from three video production companies from Company Pool/Panel and select one company, with the agreement of ‘a creative momentum project’.  If the total cost of the video is less than €3,000, the project will pay 50% of total cost and the enterprise will pay the other 50%.  If the total cost of the video is more than €3,000, the project will pay €1,500 and the enterprise will pay the remainder.
