What they say
Over the course we developed our business idea as a team and continuously refined it. We also improved our pitches to be presented to a VC. I learned so many new things

As a high schooler, Thinktomi’s Entrepreneur Playbook provided me with a real world experience on how to take an idea and make it solid enough to present in front of an investor. I would strongly recommend this course to any aspiring entrepreneurs

I enjoyed The Entrepreneur's Playbook mainly because it was a practitioner's teaching approach. You build a toolkit with a new perspective and motivation to innovate change for tomorrow.
