Day 1: Learning Start-Up Methodology & Selecting a Significant Problem to Solve
- Lean Methodology
- Participants are introduced to a process in entrepreneurship that aims to make product/service development systematic while (if practiced well) minimizing cost
- This process will be the undergirding entrepreneurship principle for all the work done in the camp
- Problem Identification
- Participants learn problem identification techniques and methods to evaluate if a specific issue is worth investing time and energy into solving
- Learning how to use Slack
- Participants are introduced to Slack, one of the foremost project management and communication applications that many well-known companies implement for its usability and versatility
- Divergent Thinking
- Paper Clip Flipping: Participants will be given a single paper clip and given a set period of time to "upchange" for items of better value. This is one of the highlights activities of our camp and we have received excellent feedback from participants
- Participants also learn the importance and power of thinking out-of-the-box. Several techniques to do so are covered in this session.
- Start-Up Validation Board
- Participants will learn to use the Startup Validation Board to test the validity of their ideas and startups in a structured and scientific manner
Day 2: Understanding the Customer, Sizing the Market & Prototyping

- Market Sizing
- Participants learn to evaluate the potential of their start-up by estimating using proxies, conducting market research and making smart assumptions

- Customer Discovery Run 2
- We go for a second run of customer discovery because we want to emphasize that understanding the problem and the customer is of paramount importance. Synthesizing feedback from this session will allow participants to build that much more useful and relevant a product.
Day 3: Mapping out Core Business Components & Competitive Pitching

“Grab worked with Reactor on GrabSchool, a regional program that provides a platform for drivers’ children to develop soft skills in teamwork and communication, prompts them tot think about what the future holds, and guides them through the design thinking approach to innovation.
We’re excited at the prospect of working with Reactor again to bring entrepreneurial thinking to more children in Singapore.”
Mr Shuo Yan,
“Through a unique blend of e-learning and hands-on workshops structured around real life scenarios, students were able to develop an entrepreneurial mindset and better appreciate the value of asking questions, whilst honing their problem solving and presentation skills. The students would recommend the workshop to their peers, which is testament to the effectiveness and professionalism of the team of trainers from Reactor.”

“The awesome thing about BLP (Business Leaders Programme) is that while they teach you the fundamentals of starting and running a business, they also teach life lessons and inculcate you with values and qualities a business leader should have.
As intense as the 5-day bootcamp was, it was very rewarding as you realize how much you are capable of when you really apply yourself.”
Ms Megan Whang,
Year 5 Student
"Entrecamp is catered to people who really have a passion or interest in the business industry. Based on my personal experience, it exposes you to different skill sets and real-life examples on the concept of being involved business. Furthermore, most of the activities are hands-on which enhances the learning. Although it is only a 3-day camp, it is an enriching experience for people who want to get a taste of how business actually works.
Personally, I have been doing some business on my own such as selling different electronic products or even writing books to gain some connections. However, I needed some right directions to get to my end destination. Hence, I went to this camp which gave me the confidence and a clear vision of which pathway to take in the business industry.
Therefore, I highly recommend it to people who have no idea where to start in a business aspect or even people who already are successful in some form of business. There is always more to learn and new beginnings that could lead us to even greater heights."
Mr Kenji Loy,
"I wish i had a program like Reactor EntreCamp to attend in my youth. I would have been exposed to the useful teachings of Lean Methodology, Agile and the likes… which are so essential in today’s digitally driven business world. I encourage parents of teenage children to send their children to this course to prepare them for the times ahead… or even help them become the next Zuckerberg!"
"This Reactor EntreCamp is an extremely good programme that offers aspiring entrepreneurs of different ages to come together to spark creative problem identifications, solutions and business plans. It was impressive that the teams were able to work synergistically to solve problems, transforming their ideas into prototypes and churn out their business plans in sure a short time of three days.
All the teams were full of energy, passionate and enthusiastic in pitching their business models. Kudos to the Reactor’s training methodology that must have accelerated the process from design thinking to business model proposals. Well done!!!!"
