Easy and not as intimidating as I feared. I am not a financial person, but I found these insights to be very helpful in understanding those who are, and being able to appreciate my family's business.
I really enjoyed this class. It has given me serious motivation to start my own company. I liked being able to see an overview of the steps I need to take to start my business off on the right foot.

It's such an amazing course, because the person who's talking has the appropriate knowledge to share and also has an excellent methodology in order to made clear what He knows.

This course very briefly presents large picture concepts of Entrepreneurship without going into a enough detail to provide any major benefit. I would see this being most useful to a person who had only vague ideas of what entrepreneurship entailed overall. The quizzes seemed to focus more on what was said during the lectures rather than what large scale constructs actually define entrepreneurs or processes overall. i.e. questions focused on sentence construction and ordering in a lecture rather than the overall concepts the sentences themselves were expected to convey.

If you have absolutely no foundation of what the basics of business, then this is for you. It's very simple and direct, but make sure to follow this course up with lecture material that goes slightly more in-depth. I recommend U of Penn.

Additional content like Excel templates and real-world stories or case studies of successful entrepreneurship ventures might be quite valuable.

I have given it a 3 star because course content is good but the professor is not able to make us understand clearly, its a little bit hard.
By Joseph G•
Easy course with some good practical information. The quizzes were not clear at all, and did not test much of what was covered in the lectures.
By Katrin D•
Very basic, it's like reading the table of contents of a guidebook 'How to become an Entrepreneur'.
By Gafyn D•
Very basic overview. No real meat on these bones.
By Elena M•
Few useful information.
By Rodrigo G S•
Extremely generic and a but to much of self-promotion.

David Standen has great instructor skills that keeps you engaged the whole time of the course, gave many examples and shared some great personal stories. Also, the quizzes proved to be brief and extremely to the point because you could remember easily the basics of the course.
The only thing for improvement; I would love to see some additional readings in case we needed more details about the subject.

The lecturer explains in a way that is easy to understand. It's also nice that he adds his own entrepreneurship experiences in his lectures. The contents of the modules are very informative as well. I took this course in the afternoon, and by the evening, a family member asked me to start a business together, so that would hopefully be my Family Venture!

This course is exactly what I was looking for. The guidance on how to proceed if you want to initiate your own business.
The step by step process seems to be pretty straight foward and absolutely possible as how well it is explained by the professor.
Thank you UCI and thank you Coursera!

This course is very helpful for beginners who have a little idea about entrepreneurship and about running this course just about sums it all up, although very basic it would definitely add to your information you have. I recommend you take it because i enjoyed it.

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.
