Regarding the course content I felt it was very useful, important and instructive for me. It gave me tools, in case I want to start my own business, complementing the contents that I'm learning at university. The videos were short enough to provide the information in a clear, concise and amusing way

I loved the instructor and found the videos very entertaining however I believe it would've been far more beneficial if there were interactive sessions. I thought this course was an excellent time investment and good practice. Although I learnt a few new things, most of the content was covered in my high school business class, and I was looking forward to a more eye-opening experience, so I wasn't wowed by the content.

Great course. I learnt a lot. The content was excellent and the delivery was refreshingly memorable. The approach to delivery was fun and allowed the content to be reinforced. The graphics and antics ensured the key points stuck. I would certainly recommend the course. Thank you

Mindset on entrepreneurship - enhance. Great and flexible courses amidst my busy schedule, I can still manage to went through the course and understand the relativity of each subject taught. The content are easy to understand. The instructors are easy going and helpful. The assignments and homework are manageable for beginner level. I am clearer on what it takes to become an entrepreneur. Thank you.

Clear to guide to entrepreneur, although it is time limited and sit the exam once only, it made me so frustrated and difficulty. Most of time I can not answer the answer. So this is not a good course with countdown timely and so stress when i open edx app. Lastly, i am happy i can finish and passed it at last. But I dont want to take second time as a nightmare to me

as a future entrepreneur trying to launch a clothing Brand Name, after making a few expenses trying to get samples from different suppliers and I came across this program via someone on social media, I can tell that this course is life-changing. without this course, I would be like a soldier on a battlefield with no weapon. improvement needs to be made on the speer score discussion section.

I love to learning it. But there is a thing that make me kind of sad because there is no sample of Calculation and no engagement from the trainer. For me, you should have a teacher that can explain the Calculation. Some of the information and question is not clear. But I have fun learning this course.

This was a refresher course to add to my resume, yet it was still beneficial. I loved the young lady who gave the instruction. Stellar in delivery, definitions and the breakdowns. The "distraction" was quite funny. Great course- do one for those who want to go back into the markets like a "So, you been gone for 10 years- here's what happened new in start ups". Thanks again!

A short course that either teaches good new content or serves as a review. That said, the female instructor was great. However, the male hipster instructor dumbed everything down to the point where i had to take breaks so as to not have his stupidity rub off. Get rid of him.

Being honest,I love this course and the way the instructor taught us.The content is interesting and appealing in many aspect.It was my free course so, due to lack of time on my own convenience ,I had to hurry up in order to complete the course due to which I was unable to enjoy the course slowly. But it was worth a lot. Thank You for making the education entertaining and affordable than ever before.

I'm so glad that I came across such an insightful and acknowledging course. Entrepreneurship is my favourite subject to study and the instructor made complicated topics so easy to learn. Distraction Frank was not at all a distraction haha. Looking forward to more courses like this masterpiece. Thank You So Much!

The course content is very good, i learned new things and insights I have not yet considered before. the instructors were lively and "Distraction Frank" is not really a distraction, he keeps us focused more on the course material. And i have ADHD. Completed this entire course in 4 days.
