What you'll learn:

Have you ever thought about what it takes to launch business from start? All the things you do in your daily life, like using an iPhone or making a Google search, started with vision, passion, and a little (or a lot of) risk taking from the mind of an entrepreneur.

In this course you’ll learn about the many women and men who took the fearless plunge into entrepreneurship and created products that changed the world. And while you’ll learn some of the steps it takes to start your own business, you won’t need to start a business to benefit—entrepreneurial skills transfer to any job.
