the content is fine but it's really annoying that there are zillion lectures in less than 1 minute, these ones have to collated together
This course will definitely help me to start in being entrepreneur. It is suitable guide for new entrepreneurs.
Explicou muitos dos desafios do empreendedorismo mas podia ter um ou outro exercício para que superasse esses desafios mais facilmente
I decided to take my own course and enjoyed working with YouAccel in the process. I thought they incorporated important and relevant content with my videos to give a good overview when thinking of starting entrepreneurial ventures. For an experienced entrepreneur, he/she will be familiar with most of the content. However, for a new entrepreneur there are many good takeaways. I appreciate YouAccel for collaborating with me on this course. Matthew Rolnick
This course is a very good match for me. The teacher is very explicit and detailed in his definition of terms
It seems good to me because I have no experience, so I can not decide if there are other subjects to be covered.
yes it was good how to handle people marketing and managing them and growing along with them has to to added
I'm glad taking the course, it has helped in improving my knowledge and skills... With this I can guide myself, friends and family members when it comes to issues on Entrepreneurship... Thanks.
Yeah.. it's an interesting course. But compiling the courses in 5-10 minutes would have been better than a minute. But it's interesting though.
Yes definitely was really a great choice picking this course.... hope for the best content in rest of the course
it was good to know more about the topic, I found out that I'm already doing some techniques without knowing what they are, now I'm more aware of my skills so hopefully I can use them better.
Thanks about introductions about enterpurene ship it's amazing and thanks you about the explain it's vergood thanks doc.
till now i realize it as a theoritical part and pure definitions . the lack of a teacher or a demonestrator to explain and make drawings and illustrations .
la structuration du plan est parfaite. l'explication du cours est à la hauteur et le contenu est claire.
