Come listen to Neil Blumenthal to see what an intelligent, altruistic, and articulate person creates in a large scale. His course is excellent and so are the guidelines he gives on brand architecture, storytelling (which finally makes sense to me thanks to his take on it), product launch, and the company's growth and culture. I really enjoyed this course and Neil's take on building a brand in general and building one with a social mission in particular. Every entrepreneur should take this course!
Very well organised thoughts about building up a company from the ground to the top. Huge thanks!
Great class!
