Jazz Finland is applying for funding from the Ministry of Education and Culture for the 2019–2020 project. The Ministry supported the previous project in 2016–2018. The companies who apply for participation are to commit to carry out the project plan, if Jazz Finland receives the funding. The Ministry's decisions will be completed and informed to the applicants by the end of April, 2019.  

All applicants must be export-ready Finnish enterprises who have jazz music as their primary industry. The companies must already have some international experience and have good qualifications for international success.
