TOP REVIEWS FROM ENTREPRENEURSHIP 1: DEVELOPING THE OPPORTUNITY
Very intresting and with helpful insight for developing opportunities. One thing could be done it is that they are focusing too much in the us market and mostly in products rather than in services.
It's a very helpful course as introduction to entrepreneurship world. It's very rich by knowledge about how take the risk to identify and utilize opportunities and get in the marketplace.
Coursera is the best,,, I’ve always thought going to school was all you need to acquire the knowledge you want... But now I no you can be home and acquire your knowledge through the help of coursera..
Even as I had started with a fragmented idea about entrepreneurship, this course kind of helped to articulate and build a structure of thought process around it. Looking forward for the courses ahead.
