On the whole, the course was very good. I enjoyed learning new things. But, some of the quizzes were tough to understand and answer. It also gave me a new perspective on seeing things. The course can be made simpler in many terms.

Really interesting course. Gives a detailed breakdown of what the whole entrepreneurial journey is all about in a very interesting way. It also compliment in a way the previous course; Entrepreneurship 101. But can still be done in isolation.

I took this course in order to refresh my knowledge of the subject and hope it related to my current work/job. The course is easy to understand and could lead one without background or one who interest in the subject to continue asking themselves to go on a career as an entrepreneur.

Would be all in if it wasn't for our obnoxious entrepreneur.. I know you were trying to be engaging but he was more distracting than helpful. The actual instructor was great. Good introduction.

The course content was great. The course content has changed my perspective about becoming an entrepreneur. Prior to this course all I know about being an entrepreneur was buying and selling. This course has increased my desire to explore more about entrepreneurship. It has opened and given me insight of becoming a great entrepreneur. The instructor used simple words that I understood and made me easier to to follow through. I love her quote from Tony Robins” It’s not about the resources you have, but how resourceful you are” I always thought I need huge money before I can become an entrepreneur. The providers did a great job of giving people like me the opportunity to study with such great institutions. The encouragement and flexibility the providers offered also helped me a lot. The fact that I am allowed to grade my peers gave me confident about myself. MIT LaunchX is great.

This is an awesome course. I loved the way it was presented & nudged me to make my First professional youtube video. Hence, it helped us in getting us out of the comfort zone so that we know what it takes to start entrepreneurship.Since I am a MBA, Entrepreneurship isn't something that's focused in B schools. Also,l would like to have a part -2 for this as well, something in the likes of -Business Plan,more focus on financials etc.

I did some separate research and there was conflicting information as to what these instructors were sayin and what other professionals in the same field were saying. A couple of my answers were marked wrong because of this. Also, in the first math problem in the middle is the course, nothing was explained on how to work the problem. Also I believe one of the number answers at the end of the course where it talks about the cookie show, are incorrect.
