I have come across the course ‘Startup India Learning Program‘, is 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 in starting and running a successful business. This course will be helpful for those who are sitting on the fence deciding to be an entrepreneur or somebody who has been in entrepreneurship for few years.
I like this course, many CEO and founders have shared their startup experiences and what problems they faced during the journey of startup. Learned many new things and terminologies such as financing, fundraising, valuation, the business planning which I wasn’t much aware of it.
The course was designed to complete in 4 weeks of the span, Around 60 hours of time would be needed to complete the course. After completing this course will get an e-certificate from Invest India with your name on it.
