The business world is constantly evolving, and it requires brilliant business minds to keep things moving forward. There are many smart entrepreneurs that are constantly looking to move society forward, but one of the brightest minds in the European business community is Mike Baur.
Mike Baur is a powerful Swiss businessman who has dedicated his life to finding new ways for businesses to grow and operate. He worked in the banking industry for 20 years and left his mark at several major firms including UBS and Clariden Leu. He loved working in the banking industry, but eventually he decided to dedicate his time and energy to another field. Baur started focusing on investing in start-up companies several years ago and has since founded his own start-up incubator.
Europe was in a tough spot economically, and Mike believed start-ups were necessary to pull the continent out of its funk. New and innovative ideas could boost economic growth and make Europe an economic powerhouse again. Mike wanted to find the newest and brightest ideas, and create a factory for these ideas to grow within, so he founded the Swiss Start-Up Factory.
The Swiss Start-Up Factory was founded in 2014 with the help of partners Max Meister and Oliver Walzer. The Start-Up Factory has proven to be a powerful force within the industry, mostly because they are an extremely innovative program. The factory offers a unique three-month incubation program. This program offers every resource that a start-up needs to grow over time. These resources include office space, supplies, advice, and access to powerful mentors. These resources would be invaluable in any setting, but they are especially valuable in Zurich. Zurich is often considered the business capital of Europe and there are numerous ways for powerful businesses to emerge in the city.
These powerful start-ups are already influencing the businesses community within Europe, but Swiss Start-Up Factory is not satisfied. They are constantly recruiting new companies to their project, so they can continue to influence the future.
Mike Baur is proud of his record as a businessman, but today he considers himself a mentor. Mike is helping the leaders of tomorrow prepare for the future , and influence the future of Europe’s business community.
