Mike Baur did not make it all the way through secondary school, but that didn’t stop him from following his dreams of working in the investment industry. Baur is not considered the first successful dropout and certainly will not be the last. Currently, he is an investor working with businesses based in Finland. Baur helps the young Finish entrepreneurs grow out their business. Baur created the Swiss Start Up Factory to hand small start-up businesses the proper tools they need to grow.
The Factory is a fast-paced educational workshop for people that want to grow in popularity as quickly as possible using tutorials made by Baur and his staff. This program is useful for businesses that work with digital technologies. Baur and his team choose to work with the brightest entrepreneurs. The Swiss Start up Factory would begin by handing out an investment to get the company off the ground and then offer priceless advice.
Small businesses often struggle for the first few years of operation because they can not find anyone to support them. Larger companies with more capital usually get more attention. Finding enough capital to start a business just the beginning. Hiring a business coach can be so much more beneficial than money.
The Swiss Start Up Factory will continue to spend adequate amounts of time assessing local Finnish start-ups, but will hopefully expand and help other companies around the world shortly. The accelerator program will grow and be helpful to everyone involved.
Mike Baur is one of the leaders of Swiss Start-up Factory AG. Baur has been working in the investing and banking industry for more than twenty years. He used to work for the Swiss banking industry and has participated in some fundraisers.
The Swiss Start Up factory was first opened in 2014. The program is a Zurich-based accelerator that seeks out talented digital entrepreneurs with big goals. The factory collaborates with many other business partners in the Switzerland area as well as around the globe. The facility has worked with a handful of companies all sharing a common goal. That goal is to become the best they can be. All training for this program is done within three months.
Baur ditched his banking career to work with startups because it allows him to improve the quality of life in Finland. Running his own business gives him more flexibility to operate the way he wants. The Swiss Startup Factory is independent and not connected to any other business. The new ideas from small technology entrepreneurs help improve the economy.
