Mike Baur is vastly known for his Swiss Start Up Factory, which is not surprising since it is considered to be one of the most effective accelerator programs for young entrepreneurs with an interest in investing.
To many, Mike is a bit of an intimidating character due to his many successful investments and financial knowledge, but that is only because people may not know him. Mike is a very inclusive person who wants to share his knowledge as much as possible. He wants to see others succeed by using some of the lessons he has learned.
It is this drive that helped him start the Swiss Start Up Factory accelerator program that has gathered the attention of many successful entrepreneurs, like Michael Hartweg. Hartweg had a very high-paying job and was one of the founders of Leonteq, but he gave all that up to join Baur’s with his accelerator program. Many, like Hartweg, have decided to join Baur as they see an exciting opportunity to help shape the future of investing and the future of digital technologies through the program.
Many who join the program are promising students with ideas that are ready to shake up the world but need a little quick polishing, which is what Baur’s program helps them do. The program lasts three months, but these months are very specialized and, some say, intense. The pace may be fast, but the benefits are worth it.
The program itself provides financing, personal services, specific-based coaching, mentoring, and office space. The space can be as simple as a desk or a private room. Some wonder what personal services are offered, which is understandable; there are quite a number of them, such as professional bookkeeping and invoice management. The program also provides payroll management services in addition to financial statements that help make tax and VAT reporting that much easier for participants.
Of course, participants can also expect to see detailed cash flow reports and financial health reports just to see how well they are performing in the program. These reports are opportunities to improve as well, which is definitely another way that students improve their skills.
It is clear to see that Mike Baur is a visionary, which makes his program’s popularity an obvious outcome due to his sheer talent and belief in younger digital technology entrepreneurs.
The program also exposes all those who join to a network of successful investors and entrepreneurs, which could enrich the portfolios of every student that enters the Swiss Start Up Factory accelerator program.
