I really like the course and the content of it. It exceeded my expectations! Only comment is that it could be a bit more flexible with the deadline of it. I had to travel last week and missed a "Recap Questions" that will affect my grade.

The course is awesome with good insights that have gotten me thinking thou I have not been able to earn the certificate. I have realized that entrepreneurship is the art of our economy today in that regardless of my and your background, we need to master this art provided we are going to go our own way into business.

I discovered a course with content to become an efficient, effective and open entrepreneur. The quality of the techniques and tools provided by the teachers who were very open to exchanges, lived up to my expectations thanks to the provider who offered a quality service. The entrepreneurship learned from you will allow us to implement our ideas to increase our income and to share this knowledge with others. Thank you to the teachers and EDX without forgetting the World Bank which paid us for the certificate.
