"I loved the entire course. It was very helpful for me as an entrepreneur. It gave me a lot to think about and work on and a lot of guidance in the right direction. The coaches were amazing and I especially loved the feedback after each assignment... Giving comments and advice is much better than being graded, as you not really sure where to improve. "
