I want to thank you for the superb care and organisation that you exemplified with our tour group from Singapore School Cebu.

My daughter was one of the 20 who joined the recent tour and even she can't stop talking about 'Uncle Melvin'!  Same was shared by Teachers Bernard and Mia.  

I hope to meet you one of these days as I also would like to explore opportunities in the future.

It allowed me to get to know my pupils more and to see them outside of school setting. I learnt a lot from the tours - the culture, the history of Singapore. It brought to life what we read in books about Singapore. It was wonderful to see my pupils learning. Melvin was the best! You see his passion and he was not only knowledgeable but made a good connection with the pupils. Pupils were engaged and he accounted for everyone!

창업을 시작하려는 학생으로써 알아야 할, 알면 도움이 되는, 다양한 것들을 배웠습니다.
아무도 저에게 알려주지 않았던 진심어린 조언과 한 때는 저와 비슷한 상황이였던 사람들이 어떻게 발전하였고 회사를 키우게 되었는 지에 대해 배웠습니다. 다들 공통되게 해준 조언은 실패했어도 포기하지 말라는 말이 제일 도움이 됐습니다.

As a student who wants to do start-up, I learnt many helpful things. No one has every advised me as sincerely and I also learnt how to develop my business as an individual. The most helpful advice which told by all of them was “Don’t give up even though you fail”.

창업에 대한 관점이 변할 수 있었던 계기가 되었습니다. 창업이라는 것은 단순히 돈이 많이 필요하고 특출난 아이디어를 가진 사람만이 할 수 있는 것이라고 생각했는데 이번 스타트업 벤치마킹 프로그램을 통해 누구든 열정과 관심을 가지고 있다면 할 수 있는 기회는 얼마든지 만들 수 있다는 것을 느꼈습니다. 특히 대학교의 인큐베이팅 시스템부터 투자회사 엑스파라의 일정을 통해 궁금증을 해결할 수 있었습니다. 가장 흥미로웠떤 일정은 실제 창업가의 입장을 들을 수 있었던 워크숍이었습니다.

It was a chance to change the thought I had about start-up. Previously, I thought start-up needs a lot of money and a somewhat brilliant Idea but through this start-up program, I felt that with passion and interests, the opportunity to do start-up will be easy. From visiting university's incubating system to visiting Expara, the investing company helped me to answer the questions I had. Especially the workshop with founders of start-up made it possible to hear directly from the founder was so interesting.

막연하게 생각했었던 창업에 대한 구체적인 정보들을 듣게 되면서, 어떻게 창업을 해야하는지, 어떤 생각을 가진 창업자가 되어야 하는 지 배울 수 있었습니다. 그리고 싱가포르는 창업하기에 정말 좋은 나리인 것 같습니다. 이곳 싱가포르에서 정말 좋은 추억과 배움을 얻어갈 수 있게 노력해주신 Flying Chalks의 Melvin, Esther 그리고 Alex에게 감사의 말씀을 드립니다. 감사합니다.

I had a vague plan of start-up but by listening to detailed information, I learnt how to do start-up and what kind of thought should the founder have. And I also realized that Singapore is a really good country to do start-up. and Thanks to Flying Chalks, Melvin, Esther and Alex for their efforts to make good memories and experiences in Singapore.

Rob and I were very impressed with the two visits organised by Flying Chalks. Your organisation, responsiveness, attention to detail and commitment to making these visits a success were very clear to us and all of our delegates. The visits were full of variety, well-designed and dynamic in terms of the different perspectives on innovation they gave us through the people we met and the places we visited. This was entirely in keeping with the theme.  

The entrepreneurship programme is clearly having a great impact on individuals and the wider community. We met a very talented range of individuals. In their presentations and interactions with us, our delegates were most impressed with their intelligence, confidence and commitment to their projects. As one of them said, 'giants of the future'.

I will certainly be very keen to work with you again and will strongly recommend Flying Chalks. It has certainly been rewarding, giving us challenging and very interesting perspectives on innovation.  Thank you very much indeed.

진정성이 느껴지는 알찬 프로그램이었습니다. 한국인 인솔자가 통역이 가능해서 도움이 많이 되었습니다. 열정 있는 스타트업 CEO들을 통해 많이 배우고 느낄 있는 시간이었습니다. 특히, 다양한 스타트업 관계자와의 미팅과 학생들의 비즈니스 아이템을 하나 하나 점검해보는 시간이 가장 좋았습니다.

Also, I really appreciate the fact that I got to witness and experience Singapore’s start-up ecosystem which differs greatly from that in Korea.

스타트업의 천국인 싱가포르를 방문하면서 싱가폴이 스타트업의 나라로 불리는지 직접 느낄 있었고, 기존에 관심만 가지고 있었던 창업이나 아이디어들에 대해 개인적으로도 코칭을 받을 있어서 창업에 대해 다른 관점으로 생각할 있었습니다. 그리고 무엇보다도 하나하나 자세히 설명해주시고 함께 어울려 주셨던 플라잉촉스 CEO 진행자분들 덕에 프로그램을 즐길 있었던 같습니다. 특히, 현지인과 함께하는 활동이 매우 인상 깊었습니다.

The visit to Singapore made me realize why the country is known as “the start-up heaven”! The program also broadened my perspectives on entrepreneurship and I even received personal coaching for my start-up ideas. Above all, the reason why I enjoyed the program so much is thanks to the Flying Chalks team who provided us with detailed explanations and bonded really well with us. The session that allowed us to interact with local students through fun activities was especially memorable for me.

스타트업 CEO들과의 만남, SMU 견학, 투자 센터 방문 등의 경험이 창업에 대한 강한 동기 부여가 됐습니다. , 정해진 시간을 유익하고 즐겁게 보냈다는 점에서 프로그램 진행자분들께 감사드립니다. 스타트업에 관심이 있는 분들에게 참가를 권하고 싶습니다. 이번 프로그램을 통해 아시아의 실리콘밸리라고 불리는 싱가포르는 한국과 어떻게 다른지 직접 눈으로 보고 느낄 있는 시간을 보냈습니다. SMU 교내 스타트업 인큐베이터를 견학하며 동기 부여가 되었고, 스타트업 CEO들과 만나고 투자 센터를 방문하며 다양한 경험을 배우고 공유할 있었습니다. 이런 깊은 시간을 만들어 Yijin Melvin 한번 더 고마움을 표하고 싶습니다. 고마워~!

Meetings with the start-up CEOs and officials from Korea Venture Investment Corporation, along with the SMU campus tour and all other experiences that I got from this program have greatly motivated me to pursue my entrepreneurial aspirations. I would like to thank the Flying Chalks team for making this experience a really enjoyable and beneficial one for all of us, and I would definitely recommend this program to anyone who is interested in entrepreneurship!

Through this program, I was able to gain insights on how Singapore, also known as the Start-up hub of Asia, differentiates from that which we have in Korea. It was a great session where I not only got to learn from experienced start-up CEOs but also share my ideas and experiences with everyone. Once again, I would like to thank Yijin and Melvin for allowing us to have such great times and memories for us. Thank you!
