Pretty easy, overall.
It was a class that was very effective but laid back. Richard and Karen shared their great deal of wisdom in an easy to understand fashion where we could apply it to the next class Entre 472& 473 with Alan Leong who is an awesome guy as well. Please take Richard and Karen along with Alan.
We learned how a company is founded and what should be done to make sure it succeeds. We learned about the Magnificent 7. The Magnificent 7 consists of the two pillars. 1 How will you win and 2 How will you win, why now. Then the middle consist of the Customer, Product, Financing, Marketing, Team. We also learned that simplicity is the ultimate sophistication. A lot of times things are made too complex when they should be made simple so everyone can understand them, so they can be applied for the common good. We also watched Simon Sinek's Ted Talk on the importance of putting why first instead of what. A lot of times people or companies are selling the same product. However, one person could be trying to sell the product to help their family whereas the other could be doing it for other reasons. We also learned about the bell curve of innovation. Highly encourage people to take the Entrepreneurship series with Richard and aren along with Alan.

Advice for students:
Enjoy it, but don't take for granted. Its laid back but that does not mean you won't learn anything. I think this class is under-rated for the amount of information you will learn.
