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.
