a creative momentum project has been working on the VPT under the coordination of Lapland University of Applied Sciences. With the VPT, a creative momentum project is striving to provide a creative solution for creative enterprises that would like to access a more diverse marketplace.
The VTP activity does not only include the development of an online toolkit, but also financial support towards the development of pitch videos. Following a competitive call for applications, a creative momentum project selected 25 video production companies from Northern Ireland, Sweden, Ireland and Finland to be included in a Video Production Company Pool/Panel.
The project is currently in the process of selecting 10-15 creative entrepreneurs (from Northern Finland, South East of Northern Ireland and West of Ireland), who will receive support to work with a production company from the panel and get the perfect pitch video made (50% of total costs up to max. €1,500).
Hopefully the VPT activity will inspire creative entrepreneurs to think about their business in new ways, which can help them save time and money in the realm of marketing and even business development.
