• How We Started

    'Back when I was in school, I always had a lot of ideas and projects I wanted to work on. However when I told them to my peers, my teachers and my parents, their reactions would always be like “Jing Wen, could you please focus on your studies!” Hence, I thought that by having a 2-3 hour or a boot camp to provide students the resources and space to work on their own little projects would be beneficial to those who are like me when I was younger.


    Reactor was founded back in 2012. I was 19 at that time. I met my co-founder, Khairul Rusydi, at SPRING Singapore when both of us were doing an internship. He had pitched the idea of Reactor to me and I got on board as I saw that it could provide the space and support for the junior generation to work on our ideas and this was something lacking when we were younger.


    Now, we are designing and conducting Entrepreneurship Education programmes for schools from Singapore, and major cities around the region such as Jakarta and Bangkok, to enable young people to start working on the world’s biggest problems, creating lasting positive change, and in so doing, contribute to society and humanity.'

  • #PeopleFirst​

    Student-Centric Training

    Training Needs Analysis


    Before the start of training, The Reactor Methodology™ employs a 3600 Training Needs Analysis (TNA) of the school, its students, and educators directly involved in the development of the child.


    This ensures that learning outcomes are aligned to the mission, vision and values of the school. We do this by employing the Predictive Evaluation (PE) framework, which is used by top HR practitioners worldwide.


    Personalized Profiling

    We profile our students to get a preliminary understanding of each individual, in order to prepare content relevant to the class’ interests, and engage in talking points to better connect with students.


    We do this by using psychometric profiling tools such as Gallup Strengthsfinder, Starteur, and the Grit Scale. By understanding their interests and strengths, trainers are able to bring the best out of students.

  • #MoveFast​

    Tight Feedback Loops

    Bias-to-Action Training

    Students are encouraged to act on their ideas, and to seek immediate feedback from the real world. Moving through tight feedback loops at creates momentum in learning, and helps students to solidify their new skills.


    We do this by complementing worksheets with a range of out-of-classroom activities, including design thinking, ethnographic research, focus group discussions, and 1-on-1 interview sessions with peers and target users.


    Exposure to Emerging Tech​

    Students are encouraged to seize opportunities in emerging technologies and markets, and implement these in their projects. This helps them to ride opportunities that are on the upswing, and prepares them for a future economy that is both complex and exciting.


    We do this by exposing students to the latest in technology trends, including 3D-printing, Virtual Reality (VR) simulations, Artificial Intelligence (AI), coding, rapid prototyping and more.

  • #BeBold​

    Local & International Exposure

    Local Exposure

    Students are exposed to local business trends and societal issues, in order to develop awareness and empathy towards the needs of Singapore.


    We do this through organising learning journeys, visiting start-ups, Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs), Voluntary Welfare Organizations (VWOs), Social Enterprises (SEs) as well as having sharing sessions with local entrepreneurs.

    International Exposure​

    Higher performing students are further challenged to think beyond the classroom, and to change-make on a regional and global scale.


    We do this by using start-up case studies from ASEAN and Silicon Valley, organising Skype calls with co-founders from overseas, as well as providing clippings from overseas news and various academic journals.

  • #HaveFun​

    Learning Through Play

    Experiential Learning​

    Play and hands-on activities form a fundamental component of the Reactor Methodology™. Enjoying the learning process has consistently provided the best learning outcomes for students, and promotes teamwork and collaboration.

    The Reactor Ratio™​

    All modules carry a range of activities, and are designed to engage the 4 learning modalities of Visual, Auditory, Kinaesthetic and Tactile learners. Students are expected to constantly interact with the trainers and each other, and won’t be seated for most of the session.

  • #BeAwesome​

    Continuous Self-Development

    Pre and Post Evaluation​

    By showing how they have grown over the course of a programme, students gain greater fulfillment from the learning process. This sets them up for career success in their chosen fields, by encouraging them to take ownership of their self-development.


    We do this by stipulating clear Success Criteria for each module, and collecting data before & after each programme. This is used to prepare a Parent Report, which is shared with parents at the end of a programme, and an Impact Report, which is shared with the school management.

    Post-Programme Support​

    Authentic entrepreneurial learning begins outside the classroom. Various optional activities are presented to students at the end of each programme to help them realize their full potential.


    We do this through Reactor Ventures, 3-hour sessions to help students who are furthering their projects, start-ups, or preparing for competitions. This is coupled with Reactor Nexus, an online mentorship platform to connect students with peer mentors & alumni.
