Yishun Junior College Entrepreneurship Bootcamp 2018
12 Contact Hours
Level 3 EEP Programme
Conducted over 4 sessions, cadets from Yishun Junior College's (now Yishun-Innova JC) Maker's Academy Club experienced our Level 3 Entrepreneurship Exploration programme.
The first session brought the cadets through the process of empathising with the user, identifying real-world problems they were passionate about solving, as well as practicing Divergent Thinking in their Ideation process.
In session two, our trainers and facilitators introduced various ways of rapid prototyping with both digital and physical resources to build wireframes and minimum viable products. This was followed by an interactive activity about the importance of Customer Discovery, as well as Business Proposal writing.
Session three saw the cadets plunging into the deep end, delving into crafting and delivering their first elevator pitch. Thereafter, they worked on perfecting their prototypes, and learnt about the concept of a Start-Up Validation Board.
The final session of the programme meant our signature Demo Day, where the ideas, prototypes and pitches were brought to life and delivered by the cadets to a panel of judges made up of their own teachers, and our trainers. In addition to the invaluable feedback received, the cadets walked away with a ready idea and prototype they could turn into an actual startup.
