Mike Baur: Leading the Way for Young Entepreneurs

With a mere two years of operations under its belt, the Swiss Startup Factory, founded in 2014 by Swiss businessman Mike Baur and two partners, has risen as the number one ICT Startup Accelerator in Switzerland. Baur, who is the executive chairman of the Swiss Startup Factory, is responsible for financing and fundraising, which well suits the 20 year veteran of Swiss private banking. His experience in banking alone gives him the wisdom and advantage to guide Swiss Startup Factory’s clients. Baur earned an MBA from the University of Rochester in Rochester, New York, as well as an Executive MBA from the University of Bern in Bern, Switzerland. He spent 20 years in Swiss Private Banking working his way up from a commercial apprentice to an executive board member of a large private Swiss bank. Hard work, dedication, and an entrepreneurial spirit were essential to Baur’s success, an ideology that he passes down to his clients with young companies. Along with the large amount of assistance, Mike Baur encourages these young businessmen and women to work harder, smarter, and together if they want to build up successful companies, much as he has. The Swiss Startup Company, an independent company, provides young entrepreneurs with access to a plethora of information, services, and assistance with their startups. Coaching, mentoring, financing, community office spaces that allow for a growth in connections, and a large international network of like minded individuals are some of the services and benefits of joining their 3 month startup accelerator programs. The incubator company is also privately financed, meaning that Baur and the two other partners are financially invested in the state of their client’s businesses. Swiss Startup Factory’s independence from the stock market, politics, and outside investors sets it apart from other incubator companies in Switzerland. From innovative idea, to execution of that idea, to the development and growth of successful companies, Swiss Startup Factory is an asset to their clients. Baur’s help, financially and as a mentor, in the launch and execution of these startups has not gone unnoticed and he remains an impactful leader in Swiss business ventures.
