Mike Baur, is a highly successful entrepreneur from Switzerland. He started the company, Swiss Startup Factory. Baur wasn’t always an entrepreneur who started companies, but got his started working in the banking industry, namely working for the well-known Swiss banks, UBS and Clariden Leu for more than two decades. The reason Baur left his also extremely successful bank career is because he felt that he could no longer serve people as much as he wanted to in that position, as well as help them in the ways that he wanted to and knew that he could. As Baur left banking, he began investing in small startup companies (or companies that are just starting to take root and find their place in the business world). As he began investing in these new companies, or startup companies as they are referred to in the business world, Baur’s passion for investing in new companies grew and he then co-founded the Swiss Startup Factory in the year 2014 with two of his business partners.
Mike Baur has also provided some great and not to mention very useful advice for those trying to leave their current jobs and become successful entrepreneurs.
