At the very beginning of Mike’s career he got his first exposure to startup companies in the banking industry. When working in this sector, Mike would regularly meet with entrepreneurs who were in the midst of starting up new companies. In a majority of cases, they needed to get funds to start up and expand. Mike would help them by going over their finances, their business idea and it’s potential. Baur would also agree to secure loans for these companies and allow them to get the funds to reach their goals. While Mike had a successful career in banking, he would look to move on to other activities. He would eventually begin to invest in startup companies.
After he left the banking industry after two decades Mike looked to capitalize on the potential of startup businesses. He would do this by investing in various companies that were new and emerging. During his time investing in startup companies, Mike used his own money to get a stake in a company. Baur would then wait for the companies to make revenue and get a share of the profits. This allowed him to earn high returns on a regular basis.
Baur started up Swiss Startup Factory in the year 2014 in an effort to help startup businesses get the guidance necessary to succeed. The company offers a very unique business model where it enables business owners to present their idea for a business. After listening to the business ideas being pitched, Swiss Startup Factory then provides coaching and advice on things such as marketing, management, product development and finance. As a result, startup businesses in Switzerland are in better position to become top companies in the near future.
