He is definitely my entrepreneurship hero because he actually did what I can only dream about ever doing with the rest of my life. Also, he doesn’t listen to anyone who tells him to slow down or just be more conservative, always wanting to be the greatest at everything.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
