Startups don’t get somewhere because you have a genius idea, they get somewhere because you don’t give up on a genius idea. — Daniel Frank

Doing the right thing isn’t always telling someone what they want to hear, it’s learning how to tell them what they don’t want to hear. — Danielle Forward

I learned that selling yourself is more important than your product. Excitement is catchy, and people will notice. — Daniel Klein

It was not just another class. It was not just homework. It was that spark that ignites that hunger for problem solving and innovation in me. It was HARD. — Jaime Quirarte-Laveaga

CEOs don’t necessarily have to be the type of people who love being under the spotlight. They just have to have a clear vision and the drive to make it happen. — Sara Ras

I’ve been able to become much more comfortable and confident pitching my ideas both to my team and to investors and I now have a much better understanding of what it takes to design a business. — Jherin Miller

I know it’s a worn out cliche, but as much as I learned about the business world, creating your own company, getting out of the building, lean startup methods, market sizing & revenue models, customer empathy maps, getting the right product using the lean canvas and business model canvas, and all of these amazing tools that existed just under my nose the entire time, what I learned about most was myself. — Noam Zomerfeld

Too often we are not allowed to fail in class, but not in this class. Failing early often allows you to succeed in the ways that you never thought about. — Janice Ng

In the beginning I really tried not to hurt anyone’s feelings, I was too soft, and I let people walk over me. At the end of the semester I was strong, stood up for myself, and I said things that needed to be said. This is the biggest learning of all. — Elissa Welsh
