I feel that course content is justified as it illustrated the simplified examples of straight business of cookies that is practical and comprehensive. Instructor was energetic and able to engage attention.Loved this course for one more reason that i too tried the same business of cookies last year with friend and learnt a lot from mistakes. 5 star for course however frank was bit distracting at some points.

There are a lot of thing to learn in this course. Instructor teach many concepts. I suggested to more emphasize on important message to learner. Some advice pass very fast. Or question or homework may help learner to know which part is important. However, i like this course. I have learnt 'Design thinking course' from MIT too.

This course has a fantastic way of presenting some fairly complicated and involved material. I found the videos very informative as well as disarming and entertaining. In the end I feel confident that I can use all this information to pursue future business ideas.

I gained a lot of knowledge by doing this course! I am not from a rich family. I could never imagine that I would be able to get any kind of education from the massachusetts Institute of Technology. I thank you very much for the help of EDX in which I have been able to do this course. I wish to join MIT in future. thank you so much.

The course content was very helpful - As per the topic - becoming an entrepreneur - this can help even to a layman as topics were explained very nicely with less technical jargons - Also a useful and captive course to utilise your free time - It helps you feel more confident and sooth your entrepreneurial nerves.
