Mike Baur is one of the most successful entrepreneurs in Europe today. The Swiss businessman is also a co-founder of the Swiss Startup Factory, a firm that specializes in assisting startups to grow and become successful in their chosen business field. He currently serves as a managing partner for the Swiss Startup Factory, and he helped the business to become what it is today – a formidable firm that is being sought after by business starters. Before he established the Swiss Startup Factory, Mike Baur worked with bank corporations for more than two decades. However, he realized later on that he would not be successful if he stayed long enough being an employee. His life took a different turn, and he quit his job in the banking industry. Mike Baur recruited some of his colleagues, including Max Meister and Oliver Walzer, to establish the Swiss Startup Factory.
The Swiss Startup Factory was registered as an official business in 2014, and in just a short period after the company’s establishment, the Swiss Startup Factory experienced significant growth. According to Mike Baur, one of the reasons why their company experienced a sudden growth is because of the huge number of people who are into startups today. When he and his colleagues were brainstorming about their business plans, it came up to him that the world needs a startup accelerator firm that would help newcomers succeed. He pointed out that a startup accelerator firm does not exist yet in the market, and something has to be done to serve the rising demand. He also pointed out that the technology existing today makes it easier for startups to proliferate. However, not everyone can maintain their momentum and suddenly crash in the middle of their operations.
This is what Mike Baur wanted to change. He wanted the people to learn more about how businesses work so that they would not end up closing their business because of mismanagement or other foul reasons. According to Mike Baur, a mind full of imagination and ideas would be surviving the intense world of business. He said that many business people are becoming successful in entrepreneurship because they have thought outside the box, and Mike Baur wanted to teach new fundamental pointers on how the startups and its owners could succeed in a world that has been reshaped by technology. It would be difficult in the beginning, as what Mike Baur claims, but eventually, everything will fall right into place.
