The Swiss Startup Factory Brings Creativity And Business Together According To Co-Founder Mike Baur

Switzerland is a federal republic in Europe that has been in existence for more than 700 years. The Swiss are a creative and precise group of people with two economic centers, Zurich, and Geneva. Switzerland is a landlocked country that is primarily divided between the Alps and the Swiss Plateau. The eight million residents of the country speak at least one of three languages, and most of them live in the Swiss Plateau. The Swiss are not part of the European Union, but the country does follow the EU’s single market system and open border treaty. The Swiss are known for being precise, direct, secretive and astute when it comes to financial matters, but the country hasn’t been successful in producing a business platform that helps young entrepreneurs turn their creative ideas into businesses, according to former banker and co-founder of the Swiss Startup Factory, Mike Baur.

Mike Baur spent more than 20 years in the Swiss banking industry. Baur has an executive MBA from the University of Bern and a wealth of knowledge about international business and banking. While he was a private equity investor for Sallfort, Baur developed a network of wealthy clients that helped him learn how to maneuver in the global market. Baur decided to take that knowledge and offer it to young Swiss entrepreneurs that needed financing, coaching and contacts in order to turn their ideas into businesses. Baur and his two partners put up the money and started the Swiss Startup Factory. The Swiss Startup Factory offers its students several programs that develop business practices that can be utilized in the global market or the local Swiss market.

The Swiss Startup Factory has a three-month accelerator program that offers students conference rooms, fitness rooms, Wi-Fi, coaching, business mentoring, and financial advice along with networking contacts. The goal of the Swiss Startup Factory is to turn entrepreneurs into functioning business executives that can lead small, medium and large companies through the intricate world of international business. But not all students want to bring their talents to the international stage, according to Baur. Many students are happy doing business in the Swiss market because of the nature of their ideas, and the fact that Switzerland supports Swiss businesses. Baur thinks that the Swiss Startup Factory has become a successful venture in just two years because the team Baur and his partners put together are professional, qualified and able to project success to all the students that attend the Swiss Startup Factory programs.
