TOP REVIEWS FROM ESSENTIALS OF ENTREPRENEURSHIP: THINKING & ACTION
It is very important to know an entrepreneur, what to do before starting a business and this course will help them much better to perform in the future.
It was an amazing experience during the whole course. I loved it much. I have learned a lot through this course. Thanks David Standen and thanks UCI for such an effective course.
Good high level overview for someone considering entrepreneurship or trying to map out what skills they need to prioritize. If you're already in the game -- skip it, too basic.
I have started a couple of business already and have struggled with the basics. This course although simple, is enough to take away an understanding of exactly where I need to improve.
