Startup India Learning Program on Enterpreuneurship

In the year 2017, I have come across the course Startup India Learning Program, a free online Entrepreneurship course by Startup India. The course is developed by Invest India in collaboration with UpGrad.

This course gives us the knowledge of the necessary fundamentals of starting a business that will help us start and run a successful business. This course will be helpful for those who are sitting on the fence about deciding to be an entrepreneur or somebody who has been in entrepreneurship for a few years.

I like this course; many CEOs and founders have shared their startup experiences and what problems they faced during the journey of a startup learned many new things and terminologies such as financing, fundraising, valuation and the business plan, ng which I wasn’t much aware it.

The course was designed to complete in 4 weeks of the span; around 60 hours would be needed to complete the course. After completing this course will get an e-certificate from Invest India with your name on it as I got 'Vinodh Reddy Chennu'.
