This fall will mark the start of another season of Brain Hunt (Ajujaht); this season begins with an event aimed at increasing entrepreneurship knowledge among young people. Introductory courses will be followed by a contest of business ideas and selection of the best ideas. The winners of the contest will be announced in May.
Brain Hunt, which was first launched by EAS in 2007, has received more than 3,400 ideas within the last nine years, and had over 4,500 young participants. According to the organisers, IT has been the most popular field of activity, but each coming year also brings more tangible inventions.
The organisers noted that whereas most participants used to be people under 25 who have unfinished degrees and no regular jobs, then these days the contestants are mainly in their thirties, have graduated from university and work in their field of expertise.
