Students will also complete practical exercises and steps to help them prepare their idea for market.

Description (Entrepreneurship 102): Applying a similar format as the 101 course,

Entrepreneurship 102 will focus on how companies “developed their product concepts, solved their customer’s problem, established a clear value proposition, refined their secret sauce, and understood their competition.”

Review (Entrepreneurship 101): “Good material, easy to understand, and very useful. I have recommended this course to many people. I plan on taking part 2 as well.” For additional reviews, click here.

Review (Entrepreneurship 102): “I believe I was able to sneak peak the content of the course ahead of the launch on December 2, 2014. I thoroughly enjoyed the logical flow of the content, the recap of each module prior to another beginning, the funny cartoons and caricatures that further define key terms, and listening to the student testimonials. This is an excellent deep dive into a complex topic and I give the course two thumbs up. Can’t wait to get BACK in December.” For additional reviews, click here.
