Anyone who wants to know the real Mike Baur needs to understand him and the company he represents from a professional standpoint. The first thing to know is that he is not just the average trained and educated professional. He is holds a signature passion for what he does and the company that he works with. The reason is simple and at the same time profound. He is a Co-founder of the Swiss Startup Factory along with Max Meister and Oliver Walzer.
Collectively with his partners, Mike Baur’s professional mission is to take startup companies and transform them into global presences that permeate innovation, power and success. Together, he and his fellow Co-founders have a vision for their company which is twofold. The first of these visions is to run an accelerator program that sets the standard and raises the bar for all others to model themselves after. Their second vision is to be the Alpha and Omega for each and every one of their startup business clientele. This means that when a company chooses the Swiss Startup Factory, they receive everything they need to move onward and upward, from start to finish.
As one of the leading team member of the Swiss Startup Factory, Mike Baur holds a couple of titles. He is known as Mister Startup DNA and a visionary in investor relations. But, what do those titles really mean? Well, it makes him the Executive Chairman, for starters. And, it means that he is solely responsible for the fundraising and financing rounds for the company. Go gas, no go. No cash, no gas. Somebody has to make the money flow, and his work experience makes him the perfect candidate of the job.
Experience in the banking world for more than 20 years with names like UBS and Clairden Leu give a person the kind of confidence to know where treasure chests are hidden. Moreover, Mike Baur most likely knows who put them there. So when it comes to rounding up investors and offering them the chance to see returns on their investments, he knows who to dial.
And, it really helps if the people that you seek to make a long-standing business relationship know about you and your work as well. That is where things like being a jury member at the START Summiteer hosted by the University of Saint Gallen kind of come in handy. Being a Deputy Managing Director of CTI is also something that gets your calls returned. Partnering with Finetech helps almost any cause when you need to win the confidence of potential investors. The accolades from Wall Street Journal are just the icing on the cake.
