The Swiss Startup Factory holds the keys to the future of Switzerland in the world of business. Co-Founder and Executive Chairman, Mike Baur is the key to the foundation and birth of SSUF. Raising the funds for capital as well as for financing multiple projects is what Mike Baur is responsible for at SSUF, and those who join the panel of high-level experts all know that joining the efforts of SSUF is the best way to learn every step from inception to the finish line what a business is all about.
Having started SSUF in 2014, Baur knew that the structure and how he setup the training would be the key to how effective this training was for any entrepreneur that joined. The ambition to create global companies is Baur’s greatest passion, and after working in the banking industry he wanted to do something different. Baur’s goal was to find new and innovative ways to start and run a company, all while teaching entrepreneurs how to think outside the box. His idea was to create a solid foundation with a three month program, that would support early stage startups with financing, coaching, and the best mentoring available in their industries. Additionally, Baur wanted to secure appropriate office space to give the entrepreneurs enough room to come in as a team and brainstorm as they continue to build on new ideas for their new business.
Creating access to a large entrepreneurial network would allow Baur to give any early stage startup the very best start possible with those who are experienced in multiple startups with multiple projects. The cornerstone of SSUF is the Accelerator Program, which is the three month program designed to push these entrepreneurs to start and build their business with momentum as quickly as possible. There are now several internship projects available with SSUF for those who wish to come on board and learn more about the InSure Tech industry.
There are multiple opportunities within SSUF, and Baur has created opportunities in various industries with the help of his team to bring the best entrepreneurial minds as well as those who are considered top-level bankers as well. Mentorship is available to those who wish to engage direct with innovative thinkers, and discover the very best that business has to offer in Switzerland.
