Businessman and entrepreneur Mike Baur began the Swiss Startup Factory (SSUF) in 2014. As co-founder, director and CEO of SSUF, Baur uses his industry knowledge and experience to help others jump start their own businesses. The Swiss Factory provides a multitude of financing services to startups for accelerated business growth. The financial services package is called the “360° Services Platform,” and it includes: Association, Digital Business Strategy, the Wenger and Vieli Law Accelerator, the Pre-Accelerator, and the Growth Accelerator.
The platform is designed to push startups into the fast lane by offering any and everything that’s needed at a reduced price as a package. Because the office space acts as an incubator; this gives startups a much needed base and allows them to focus on understanding the various stages of organic business growth.
Some might even say that Mike Baur and his team at the Swiss Startup Factory work as a team with other entrepreneurs. Baur’s main focus however, is offering expert advice and direction in the areas of fundraising and capital growth. In July 2016, SSUF announced a new partnership with Y&R Group Switzerland. This is a partnership for a particular purpose, that purpose is to help startups.
It’s key for startups to receive accelerated training in the areas of branding and marketing. This partnership initiative will introduce the fundamentals of digital marketing in a three month training program. The program includes workshops on search engine optimization, brand building, website design and technology strategies, business problem solving, website analytics and help with generating leads and sales.
Although, Mike Baur started SSUF just two short years ago, he’s already off to an impressive start. Much like the accelerator startup programs and financial services that the company provides; he’s really striving to keep the SSUF name out there. This past September, it was announced that Swiss Startup Factory was one of the advertising partners of the Digital Festival. SSUF’s other partners also joined in hosting the festival, these include Y&R Group Switzerland, RedBull Media House, and Goldbach Group, and AMAG Import.
I guess you can say that, Mike Baur is indeed a man on a mission. A mission that involves helping startups get their businesses up and running in the shortest amount of time. By teaching business strategies for organic growth; SSUF changes unknowns into knowledge for startups. The accelerator programs provide startups with information and support.
