      Here's what Dan Cathy, Chairman and CEO of Chick-fil-A, Inc, says about this course:

      Entrepreneurs are significant drivers for our economy and spur innovation across industries. Congratulations to Biola University on their commitment to this course on Entrepreneurship that will prepare students to succeed and prosper as entrepreneurs and leaders in the future. Students will receive a tremendous benefit as they develop and perfect their own skills. They will further act as catalysts and agents of positive change for future business incubation and growth. Entrepreneurship is essential to a thriving economy and we wish for each of us to possess an entrepreneurial mindset and founder’s mentality as we hope for an even better future for ourselves, our teams, our customers, and our business. Jeremiah 29:11 reminds us of God’s promises over our lives and our work. May we each remember that HIS plans are to prosper and not to harm, but plans to give us each a hope and a future.
