Mike Baur Works Hard and Finds Satisfaction in Swiss Start Up Company

Mike Baur does a good job of putting his education to work through multiple companies that he has seen success in, currently holding down an executive position at five different companies.

He started out getting interested in finances at the age of sixteen. He went on to recieve his bachelor’s degree in banking and finances. Still feeling the pull to further his education, he then went on to recieve two masters degrees, one in Business Administration and another in Executive Business Administration.

Using his knowledge from the universities, in addition to his hard work and dedication, he had successes in the banking industry but in 2008 the recession hit and the banking industry seemed less enjoyable than it had before in part because there was more hoops to jump through in order to help people achieve their goals. He wanted to help in a quicker, less painful way.

As he began looking for something else to do, he found his niche when he create a start-up company called Swiss Start Up Factory. He started the company with a colleague he had met at college and they immediately began helping companies find success, either by helping them financially or through a mentorship program.

The mentorship program helped the promising companies by giving them rent-free work space in Switzerland’s largest city, three months assistance, and hands on learning about how to market their products worldwide.

Mike Baur also sits on the board of a pitch contest named START Summiteer, which not only helped the contestants of the contest but also helped launch Baur’s company as one with notiable reputation. The contest is focused on companies with less than one million dollars assets and only thirty companies make it to the pitch sessions.

Not wanting to go too far from his financial roots, Baur also created a company called ThinkReloaded that helps affluent people decide which investments are the best ones to make. Naturally, ThinkReloaded and Swiss Start Up Factory have worked together on numerous projects.

Part of what makes Baur’s organization unique is the sheer amount of work that everyone involved at Swiss Start Up Factory puts in. As a matter of fact, that is why they added the Factory part to the name- because factories work hard and so does Baur and his partners and that is something worth bragging about!
