"The importance of Brain Hunt for start-ups lies in what is not visible in the TV picture. The advertising is nice, but after Brain Hunt, you'll most grateful for the network that will accompany you for a long time after the show."

"Brain Hunt is the best place to go if you have a good idea in your head, but you don't know where and how to start. The jury will make you ask the right questions - and you shall find them inside yourself"

Katrin Liivat, FoodDocs

"Behind the TV show, which is sort of the top of a nice iceberg, is a long and extremely exciting process. Brain Hunt program is a great opportunity to turn a quietly matured good idea into a viable business. We came to Brain Hunt with the idea of bringing a board game to the market, not knowing how to do it. Now we've done it."
