Very engaging, useful and fun to learn. The videos are short, but cover all the important material. I loved the idea of having a side distraction to make the class funnier and catch the attention of students.

It's an amazing of learning something new. I don't video making should be a part of it though. The language is quite easy to understand for people who are beginners or experts in english. the concepts are very crisp and clear.

Definitely a useful course that I learnt a lot from, for improvement some of the questions felt like the answers were slightly opinion based rather than backed up by facts but nothing major. Would still recommend the course.

Content, Instructor and Provider - all three were amazing. The amusing approach to the dense business concepts made the course quite fun and free flowing. I could finish the course in two sittings and made notes of all important concepts. Kudos!

I liked the instructor but didn't need all the cutesy stuff from the guy--I didn't feel it added anything. That might help if you are talking to very young people. I was surprised at the brevity of the course.

I think that this is an enjoyable course that gives you the information to learn in a great and fun way. Even though I didn't have a lot of knowledge in entrepreneurship, this course inspired me to perhaps embark on my own journey of becoming an entrepreneur.

Content was difficult to follow as a result of the many [childish] video distractions. I think it's good to have fun but that should not be a pedagogical negative. Here, the fun degraded my ability to learn.

Excellent Course. presented in a simple yet very detailed manner in which it may seem too simplistic at the start but is very thorough. Needs one to be awake and concentrate and repeat to ensure effectiveness, which is very worth the time, especially if you are serious about taking the course.... Loved it.

Great Course, enjoyed taking it. Helped increase my knowledge of Entrepreneurship. Hoping to be able to apply in real life. Strategies explained how to plan the product, marketing strategies to be used in the initial stages of the business and later stages of it. Product pricing was made clear. All of it is useful. Thank you.

The course was this much wonderful that it felt like saying goodbye to a very close friend at the end of this course. It taught me many things that I have not considered before. The strategies it taught me were really priceless. I truly got treasures of knowledge from this course and hope that this course will be useful in my practical life as well.
