The best ever online course one could find. It is worth every single minute spent. Thank you so much for offering this course. And really so happy to complete this course. Much love to the professor.
This course has helped gain knowledge of the valuation of companies of all sizes, basic funding criteria, and sources for a startup and a view of investors for a company.

NIce Content, well presented. Sometime I wish a bit more details on the calculation and a review on some of the examples given at the end of a week. But a good start for anyone interested in this topic.

The first part from Manuel amazin. The second one is not clear, and I had to access a lot the forum for specifics doubts that were not clear during the lessons. Need to improve a lot.

Week three felt a little weird, as like if a video was missing... also week 1 quizz had some questions that also seemed weird. Appart from that it was a great course!

I will suggest others to know about VC and valuation of startups through this course. I would rate it 5star if it had more detailed discussion of equity valuation.
By Christopher L•
Overall course was good. I would have given 5 stars if the instructors/staff were responsive to Forum questions (which is very important for FAQs - in my opinion)

Week 3 could be improved, the lecturer was not specific with certain valuation formulas thus creating a lot of confusion. Other than that, great course. Thanks!

It was a great overview on basics of Angel & VC Funding. The faculties explained everything quite point to point with related examples.

Solid overview course on VC valuation. Math behind the various examples could have been explained more thoroughly.
By Daniel U•
Excellent course. Could be more precise in some examples because sometimes the exercises are not explicit.
By Nilesh M•
The course covers good material to learn but, the starting week 3 the teaching quality is not good.
By Krishnan S•
The last two modules seemed very compressed. Explanations could've been a little more detailed.

The course served as a good overall introduction to startup valuation methods. As a startup founder that has raised venture capital, it was good to get refreshed on the concepts. However, the dual instructor mode of teaching clearly manifested itself. Week 1 and 2 were done well by the first instructor. Week 3 requires extra research and practice as a different instructor tended to brush over calculations that eventually showed themselves in the exams. The balance between listening to voice and reading slides was very off. You may get frustrated as concepts show up on marked quizzes that were either not clearly discussed or assumed that the student would figure it out. For someone like me it was straight forward but word of warning for those that like concepts and calculation methodologies clearly explained.

I liked the course, it provides good insights into the world of startups financing.
However, regardless of the good material and insights provided, I would not recommend it as it is a fairly frustrating learning experience:
1) theory is weak, there are too many examples
2) professor (weeks 3 and 4) skips too many intermediate steps in explaining the content
3) quizzes do not always appropriately reflect the material / wording used during the theoretical part, making it very hard and frustrating to pass (simply because in finance everyone tends to use its own wording, so it is crucial to be consistent)
If they managed to improve these points, the course would be definitely one of the best on the topic

Covered some very useful and interesting concepts that are applicable to the VC industry. However, the content and teaching of week 3 are confusing and inconsistent unlike week 1 and 2. In particular, the option pool and required equity stake calculations were poorly explained and there are inconsistencies with what was taught, the practice quiz, and the graded quiz when it came to dilution effects.
