TOP REVIEWS FROM FINANCING FOR STARTUP BUSINESSES
Some valuable information in here. But I'm not sure if the title of this course is all that accurate. It is a little misleading to what is included in the course content. Still a decent course
The course is very innovative and informative! The professor is very good at explaining concepts and all knowledge is well-delivered with excellent and clear examples.
The concepts are high level for who are not from financial background. But by going through the lectures more often you can learn the concepts.
Very informative and back you up with proper qualifications for the the valuation landscape of the startups and new businesses
