In June 2019, Valge Kuup received an export grant for creative industries from Enterprise Estonia (EAS). The project, called “Valge Kuup Studio. Export”, will be supported by €33,320, from the European Regional Development Fund, in order to get started in export. The project period is 2019–2022.
Objectives and expected results of the project:
With the help of the grant, Valge Kuup will expand its art fabrication service to foreign artists, especially those preparing for exhibitions in Estonia or in our neighbouring countries. We aim to have 5 to 10 regular international clients, for whom we produce artworks and offer installation service.
As a result of the grant, Valge Kuup foresees moving into international markets with the exhibition design and installation service, and to pick up several loyal customers among the art institutions in Finland and Baltic States.
As a result of the project, Valge Kuup will have increased the number of employees to whom we can offer interesting and versatile work.
The turnover at Valge Kuup, and the share of international projects, will increase as a result.
With the help of Valge Kuup, Estonia will have risen among the countries known for the fabrication of artworks, which in turn enables the exhibiting of more diverse international art in Estonia and its neighbouring countries.
In 2021 Valge Kuup OÜ has received support for export activites through the European Regional Development Fund and the Estonian Architecture Centre's project "Architectural Export Tiger Leap vol 2" supported by Enterprise Estonia. The support has been given for creating and preparation of LinkedIn's digital portfolio and expanding the contact network.
