While some experts advocate doing away with business plans entirely, they do play an important role for many entrepreneurs. The business plan is the format used to communicate your business model to bankers and investors.
Once you have your plan complete, how do you convince investors to pay attention to it?
Dr. Cornwall definitely laid out a general overview of the things needed to consider before venturing into a business. Though I've taken some entrepreneurship course in the past, there are some concepts in this lecture that I haven't heard before which definitely made a difference.
It was good.
This was a well-made and delivered course. It helped me understand the basics of starting a new business. And though the videos are not too long, Dr.Cornwall has packed in a lot of information there. You will have pages filled with notes. Great course.
With this course, Dr. Cornwall introduces us to the basics of entrepreneurship. A very interesting and comprehensive course, that helped me in discovering many points I need to prepare on and many skills I need to learn and refine. The production quality was extremely good and the material was high-quality. The many real-life examples from Dr. Cornwall experience are extremely useful to clarify some points. Overall, a great course. Strongly recommended.
If I'd had access to this course years ago, I wouldn't have logged so many dead ends in my own start up ventures. Dr. Cornwall's overview opened my eyes to some of the pre-launch pieces I'd been missing. Will be filling in those holes with gusto now. Big thanks! Highly recommended, even for people with experience.
