by Sd completed this course, spending 5 hours a week on it and found the course difficulty to be easy.
Long story short: I work in a consulting company which, among other things, creates startups.

Casually enrolled in the course out of curiosity, ended up applying the entire knowledge and frameworks in the actual workflow.

Don't be fooled by my rating on the difficulty/level (easy) because, yes the lessons are indeed easy to understand, but some assignment might be quite challenging if you underestimate it.

The forum community has a decent turnover and there are people to interact with, which is a plus.

The tutors are awesome, helpful and quick to reply.

I started this course about few weeks ago and I am done with it. I am a student right now so I don't need to start any company now. But the fear of being an entrepreneur is no more. I am ready to plan my future accordingly. I loved the TUTOR - Laurie Stach. Thank you ma'am I am impressed with the way you teach. I think the distraction was cool. It was fun with him too. I wish I can meet you Laurie Stach because I want to discuss few more aspects of being an entrepreneur.
