Thank you for great event

This years event is now over. Alternative Party wants to thank all the visitors, speakers, artists, sceners, exhibitors, sponsors, partners and ALL of you for a warm and lovely event we got.

Brain Pool - Feeding allowed!

Brain Pool is a place where brains meet to process YOUR ideas. The audience consists of people with alternative ideas on digital technology, art, business and science.

Brain Pool is held at Alternative Party on Saturday 24th October at 14.00-21.00 at the Café Stage. Everybody is invited to participate both as a feeder or a brain.

In association with HMEA - Helsinki Metropolitan Area Entrepreneurship Academy, Slush Helsinki and BRIIM.

How to become a brain feeder?

You can reserve 30 minutes of brain processing for anything: e.g., your art, technology, business or scientific ideas and projects.

You may use any presentation techniques, but we provide you with a microphone, video projector and a pool of brains. The timelimit is strict. Don't be boring.

All brain pool presenters will get a free entrance on Saturday (max 1 ticket/slot).

We will draw between all presenters a few surprises: a bottle of sparkling wine, brainbic vouchers, super sexy "We Love Business" t-shirts (from HMEA) and more.

How to be a brain?

Everybody is invited. Brain Pool presents a collection of most amazing new ideas. Check the program and attend your favorite feeding sessions!

Remember to vote for the best feeding session.

Reserve your brain time now!
