Everything fine, I appreciate the instructors and the content too ....but always there's a room for improvement. It'd be better if there's more realistic content in the course.

Actually the course was great. I have learned a lot of topics which let me start as an entrepreneur. But I think It is needed to add some content about the starting of the business or the "Launch" as I think you will encounter different type of problems such as "what is the legal structure for start-ups" or how to analyze your marketing and sales. and what do you expect in the first year. But overall the course was amazing.

Is good if you have no background in entrepeneurship. It covers all the fundamentals about becoming an enrepreneur, but it could have deepened into some topics for more detailed explanation.

Good content and a good instructor. I'm not a mother tongue and sometimes the instructor spoke too quickly. Some time the joking scenes between the instructor explanation may create confusion.
