I thought the class was fine. I don't know if this was an edx issue or not, but as an audit student I was only given one and a half-two weeks to complete the course and that is not enough time to fully grasp all that you can in the course material. Also when I was watching the videos, I thought the girl instructor was good, I learned a lot from her, but I thought the guy you saw here and there at times. I stopped finding him funny after a couple of videos, thought he was unnecessary, and also took away from the video.

Before this course I had a wrong picture of entrepreneurship, I thought it took a lot of money to start a business, perfect ideas, all the answers to questions. In this course I learned a lot thanks to a great explanation from the instructor. I am thrilled. Thank you.

AWESOME LEARNING VERY BASIC BUT VERY CONCISE. START UP BUSINESS CREATES A VERY BIG OPPORTUNITY AND MARKED INTO CONSIDERATION ABOUT BUILDING A PROTO TYPE IN EVERY BUSINESS. USED FORECASTING AND DEMAND PLANNING. EVERY BUSINESS HAS A BUILDER, A BRANDER AND BUSINESS DEVELOPER AND MUST HAVE GOOD FINANCIAL BACKGROUND AND GOOD IN ACCOUNTING.

There was a very short period of time given to finish up all the assessment which makes me not to take all. if there is a way to increase the time to study the course together with performing the course assessments that will be better

Good as a high level overview and some tools & tips. In case you want to go more in depth on the topics think another course would be better. Although the intermezzo's of 'the dude' are funny they are also very distracting from the content.

I loved the course, the videos are incredible, the explanations are incredible, but I don't know why some tasks don't appear for me and I missed the time limit, but these activities never appeared for me (assignment) I didn't pay for the course and the certification, is that the problem ?!

The course itself was an eye opening for me as I do not have ay experience in entrepreneurship. It excites me to know that after finishing this course, I have acquired knowledge regarding the said subject. The instructor is very lively and engaging. Everything was done in an enthusiastic way. I never got bored in any of the videos and presentations. Love it.

This course is by far the most capturing course I've done. I started with the shortened free version and on completion, I decided I wanted more. I signed up and paid. the assignments are well-thought-out and further teach. The humour added into all the videos were perfect, not overused and entertaining at the same time. Honestly great job to the people behind this course.

Great course! Easy yet loaded with USABLE information and templates! The instructor was very positive and inspiring. She kept my full attention and used her displayed excitement to motivate the student. Great course for anyone interested in a start-up. I’ll be taking certain aspects I learned here and applying them to my online Merch store, album sales projections, and Merch booth while on tour this summer! Love, Light, Happiness.
