Finpro, an association founded by Finnish companies, has launched a project supporting the internationalization and growth of Finnish creative industries. Finpro supports this process through multidisciplinary expertise and a global network of experts. The recently launched project, which has been named Luovimo, is financed by the Ministry of Employment and the Economy and the Ministry of Education.

The Luovimo project consists of common innovation processes for the creative industries and company-specific development programs. Different creative industries’ top companies, which are ready for internationalization, will be selected for the program. The selectees’ business operations and readiness for internationalization will be developed through a consultancy program tailored to each company’s needs. The search for companies continues until March 5th.

Luovimo’s main emphasis is on developing readiness related to selling concepts, products and services. The project focuses on design, film TV/AV, music, performing arts, games, and content production. The project will assist twenty companies within the creative industries to develop a sustainable and profitable business for the international market.
