Ever since 2014, Mike Baur has been leading Swiss Startup Factory to gradually become one of the biggest and best firms in Switzerland. Swiss Startup Factory is a company that majorly focuses on offering consultation and funding to other start-up organizations to help them develop. Ever since Baur was young, he always wanted to join the banking and financing industry, and he had the privilege of both his dreams come true.
Before founding Swiss Startup Factory, Mike worked in the banking sector for more than fifteen years where he majorly helped entrepreneurs and organizations acquire funding to help them grow their business. He majorly helped in providing capital to these clients while assessing the potential of these companies. In most cases, if the business had the potential of growing and profiting, Baur would offer the loan needed by the client with the hope of expanding the start-up firm. While working in the banking industry, Mike had helped numerous businesses accessing the funding they needed to help them reach their goals.
He had a successful career journey in the banking sector before he decided to quit and join the financial sector. Mike believes in the power of determination and ambition as this played a significant role in shaping the person he is today. At the peak of his career, Mike majorly invested most of his time and money in start-up organizations that had the potential of growing in the near future. Through investing his money, it was easier for him to learn more about start-up firms and be in a position of identifying the best startups from the worst ones. From what he learned over the years as he invested his money helped him when he decided to found Swiss Startup Factory with the help of other two partners.
Starting Swiss Startup Factory was a big step in Baur’s career journey as he believed through the firm; he would continue helping other businesses achieve their goals. From what he had learned as an investor, Mike was sure that he would run the business well and bring about much success. By providing mentorship and funding, Mike trusts that organizations have a chance of achievement in the ever-evolving business world where everybody wants to succeed. To make sure people have equal opportunities, Mike employs a business model where every entrepreneur is given a chance to present his/ her idea before Mike evaluates all of them to choose the best. Through this, Mike believes he will continue helping business to reach their greatest potential.
