Mike Baur is a highly successful businessman and entrepreneur; after working in banking for roughly two decades, he quit working for these financial industries, including UBS and Clariden Leu, in an effort to invest his time and money into startup companies. After a brief amount of time investing in new businesses, Mr. Baur co-founded a business himself; along with assistance of Max Meister and Oliver Walzer, the Swiss Startup Factory was established in 2014. With a vision to turn startup companies into global business, the Swiss Startup Factory has been able to effectively break the mold of the traditional business model and products. Baur and his team have two primary motivations, the first being to create a standard for all other accelerated programs, allowing startup businesses to elevate their company. Second, the Swiss Startup Factory desires to create a full service for their startup businesses, satisfying any needs that a company could possibly demand. For investors, the Swiss Startup Factory provides complete portfolios on potential business they made want to invest in, while also providing a platform to accelerate their ideas. For the startup companies themselves, the Swiss Startup Factory is able to provide various financing options, provide access to a network of various investors and mentors, all while providing an accelerated program and customized service package to its startups. For potential talents, Mike Baur and his colleagues have established a successful platform for these individuals to grow their careers. Without the efforts provided by Mike Baur, through his decades of experiences in banking and investing, he has been able to establish an organization capable of providing the necessary tools and resources to businesses that desperately need assistance to grow and expand their company. Mike Baur is committed to open the doors of possibility to startups that have the potential to change the world for the better. The Swiss Startup Factory provides an intense, three month program that provides businesses, in their early stages, with the proper financing and mentoring.
