After working through the private banking industry, Mike Baur followed on the path of entrepreneurship. He realized that a goal of his was to help create and fund start ups around the country. As a result, with two of his co-founders, he created the Swiss Start Up Factory. This organization gives financial services and mentor-ship to promising start ups. By applying, companies run the chance of being selected by Mike Baur and a team of professionals to boost the sales and ability of their company.
The reason that Michael Hartweg seemed like an especially prudent choice for the Swiss Start Up Factory was because the organization wanted to focus more on Fin-tech start ups and launches than it had before. In the upcoming cycle for the Swiss Start Up Factory, technology and digital companies from the Fintech sector will be exclusively chosen. In a move to make this goal more realistic, the Swiss Start Up Factory became partners with the Geneva-Fin-tech Accelerator Fusion Program, an organization that boosts the ability of start-ups through advice and funding.
