I only wish I found this course earlier - I quit a seven-figure job, with my last designation being Joint Managing Director, within a Public Listed Company in Sri Lanka to start two businesses of my own - it would have made the planning over the last 3 months faster and more structured. I use it now to revalidate assumptions and planned strategies to pivot/amend my plans accordingly. The time spent on the programme pays back, perhaps 50-fold!

Really practical and sensible information taught with the objective of actually guiding an entrepreneur in setting up a new business. The fact that there is focus on both, traditional and IT businesses clearly demonstrates the value of the skills being taught through simple practical examples.

No component of this course has been made to appear more complicated than it is, hence bringing out the true value of the lecture team. I particularly love when they share their own examples clearly demonstrating how they are not masters of theory, but active practitioners, investors, leaders and still skillful teachers.

As a roboticist, with no former experience in entrepreneurship, I found this course very informative. It provides a very solid and condensed description on the concept of a start-up.

The course was very well designed and my experience with the instructors was amazing. Professors Karl Ulrich, Ethan Mollick, Lori Rosenkopf and David Hsu were amazing. But I think Professor David Hsu can deliver his lectures much more effective so that we can involve in his lectures much more effectively like all other professors. He was also good but when compared with others he can be much more effective like them. Professor Karl was the best when it comes to Explaining Allocating equity amongst team members and also in Naming a company with his different interviews with some of the successful entrepreneurs helped me to learn a lot. Finally it is an excellent course for me.

The course comes up with lean material and several factors that we almost skip or not even think well enough in the launching process, for example recruiting early members. Also I enjoy the brand name part of Week 4 a lot, which makes me go back and start to search for a more proper brand name from scratch. Technical consideration and networking sections are indeed helpful with several aspects to consider and reconsider. This is my second course in this Specialisation so I start to jump around and tend to go directly to section of interest, which seems to be no problem at all.

Thank you for your hard work, sharing and motivating!

Tons of value -- for free!!

I hope in future iterations of this course you could include more tangible tools we can use to help grow our business. These lectures included a few resources -- but more could definitely be introduced.

As a business owner myself, this course has shed some light on things I hadn't considered -- and offered a more academic approach to business. I hope in the future more "resources" could be included -- because I think many people considering starting their own business but don't realize how many excellent resources are available (and many times for free -- just take Coursera, for example!!)

As a student in Fox school of Business, also located at Philadelphia. After this course, I just found I have even more jealous toward Quakers. Brilliant speeches, brilliant ideas, awesome content and useful skills. I learned pretty much through it. Hopefully, one day, I can be as a MBA student of Wharton, sit at Huntsman, to continue my study. As for now, knowledge for action. I would move a mountain to see if I may apply all these techniques toward life. Thank you, Coursera, for brought such a marvellous work to all of us who were not Quakers at Wharton. Thank you, thank you all.

Whether you're just learning, reviewing or filling in the gaps of entrepreneurship, this is an outstanding investment in yourself. It's getting ideas flowing, better structuring approaches and applying best practices. I've been able to look back at why some companies have succeeded and others not done so well, and why. Well worth the time to become more a more capable addition to startup and growth company.

This course covered every detail that a startup entrepreneur must take into account when launching an enterprise: from the naming of the brand and the pitch approach to the legal aspects in intellectual property. I have found interesting and important information that will surely help me save time in future planning.

Entrepreneurship is about managing uncertainty and turning things to make your venture successful. I think that happens if you (as an entrepreneur) know your strengths and weaknesses. This course has helped me to evaluate and discover me while learning about entrepreneurship. I am really enjoying this learning.

Great overview of the process of startup launch. I'd love to be able to learn more of the nitty gritty.

How to deal with the need to expose technology to potential partners' in attempt to create a value chain cooperation. The risk is always there but how would I decide what is the best timing to approach them?

Lots of really valuable information that I am not sure I would have gotten within my current network. I really like the notes tool and the quality of the learning experience. The course is very solid. The entrepreneurship track from Wharton is exceptional. Great value for money!

Very realistic and down-to-earth discussions breaking down overwhelming challenges many businesses face. I especially appreciated the discussion regarding growing businesses that rely on two-sided markets, since the challenges surrounding the issue seem insurmountable at first.

Going through this course while working on a new venture provides a relevant and contextual point of view that you would not receive if you only use the course as a standalone. I look forward to completing the Wharton Online Specialization via Coursera!

Excellent course. Lots of practical case studies making the learning more interesting. I'd like to thank Coursera for facilitating this and more importantly the Course instructors from Penn university who I believe done a remarkable job.
