Mike Baur is the Co-Founder and CEO of Swiss Startup Factory (SSUF), that supplies early-stage startup companies with the resources to become creative and intuitive globally minded companies. SSUF is committed providing a dynamic and robust three-month startup accelerator program, as well as comprehensive services for any need a startup might have. Based out of Zurich, SSUF is able to offer startups help with finances, mentorship, coaching, office space, and networking. SSUF pulls upon the passion behind the great ideas, products, and services entrepreneurs have and want to offer by accelerating their progress toward becoming viable business ventures. Without the work of companies such as SSUF, many entrepreneurs would not have the knowledge, skills, nor team behind them in order to successfully execute their visions.
After nearly twenty years in Swiss Private Banking, Baur decided to branch out with Max Meister to start SSUF. Baur and Meister’s mission at SSUF is “take startups and turn them into global companies that disrupt the prevailing norms, products, and business models.” SSUF’s model has proved overly successful and has become one of Switzerland’s top independent and privately funded early stage Startup Accelerator programs. SSUF specializes in helping creatives move their ideas forward by acting as a catalyst for new business ventures.
Baur and his team, curate an environment of support and service that enables digital entrepreneurs the tools needed to make their ideas into profitable businesses. Baur and his team equip these developing leaders and companies with the resources they need to navigate an excruciatingly tough startup market. Much like a Sherpa, Mike Baur works as a Sherpa helping startup entrepreneurs navigate the Everest-like atmosphere of new business ventures with his team at SSUF. He is able to assure startups a platform upon which to thrive. SSUF boasts a team of experts in the field, as well as, mentors and network of fellow entrepreneurs in order that entrepreneurs are boosted toward execution of their business plans and the success of their businesses. Entrepreneurs would be wise to join Baur and SSUF in order to propel themselves in the direction of an effective business launch.
