We are pleased to announce that the selection of companies for the Digital Storytelling Support Program is made.
We received in total of 52 applications: 25 from Finland, 2 from Sweden and 25 from Norway.
The decision-making process was rather difficult as we received so many interesting and attractive applications. For that reason we decided to choose more companies than was planned.
Taking into account the Horizontal criteria and the Program requirements the following conditions were considered during the selection process:
- supporting young entrepreneurs under 24 years old;
- gender balance;
- supporting small-scale companies;
- operating in the Northern Lights Route region, representing different locations in the area;
- the motivation of an applicant.
And so, 36 lucky companies were chosen to be a part of the Program, of which 18 from Norway, 16 from Finland and 2 from Sweden.
Instructions for the further actions were sent to the selected companies by email.
Later on, we will introduce them to our audience. Stay tuned for updates!
