The module was very deep and delivered by an aptly equipped lecturer. As an Entrepreneur it gives clear perspectives on where I should be focusing to effectively raise funding for my venture.

This course is quick and easy. IMPORTANT: No information is updated after 2014. All data is from years before that. Contacting the teacher's assistant doesn't work. That's fine since the basics I was refreshing myself on are still the same. I bet there's more up-to-date classes out there and the current trends that are mentioned in this course are very out dated at this point. Also, there are quizzes at the end of each "week", but the second quiz you can write whatever you want in the answer boxes and they'll mark you as 100%. Use this course for the basic information, but you won't be an expert in current new venture funding by taking this course alone.

The course summarized the key concepts that an entrepreneur will need to become familiar with in order to survive in the competitive startup environment. The text-book and recommended extra readings were very useful in order to complement the material.

I respect the fact the lectures contain a lot of references to the outside world, e.g. goes beyond the academia.

Hi Team,

Course is good.

Videos and contents need to be updated on regular basis, sometimes data discussed is bit outdated.

The course content is excellent.. but it has a huge problem from my point of view.

Me as a person who had no background at all about company capitals and finance topics, found it extremely difficult to cope with the course specially the first week.

I needed one month of study from other sources before being able to complete the first week.

I suggest that the content should be adjusted to give a basic introduction for beginners.

Just like other University of Maryland online courses - boring
