The reasons to get a verified certificate from any of the MOOC's seem to be:

+ Gaining additional motivation.

+ Someone requiring it.

+ Adding formal credentials to a CV.

+ Supporting the institution, because you can.

+ Confirming the accomplishment.

All are valid reasons, and in a particular person's unique circumstances each may have great value. There's no universal benefits or detriments.

Registration is open for Startup School 2019. Classes start July 22nd.
