Mike Baur is a respectable individual in the world of entrepreneurship who has come out as a facilitator who is focused on helping young entrepreneurs meet their goals. He leads a team that has been reviewing the ideas of young entrepreneurs to support them with resources and incubation.

The company basically offers young entrepreneurs a platform where they are allowed to present their ideas for review and those accepted are taken through mentorship for six months.
Before he entered into entrepreneurship, Mike Baur worked in the banking industry. His career as a banker was at the helm of success when he made a decision to leave lucrative opportunities in banking to pursue entrepreneurship. This decision was seen by many as an unfortunate risk that would soon backfire, but as things would appear shortly, Mike was well prepared to handle the uncertainties and challenges ahead. He put all his effort into building Swiss Startup Factory, which would later become the most successful incubation facility in Switzerland.
Immediately the Swiss Startup Factory was founded, Mike Baur took up a role where he would work as a member of the jury team, which was tasked with looking into ideas presented to decide which deserved incubation. His contribution also so him get appointed as the vice managing director in charge of CTI Invest. CTI joined Swiss Startup Factory in a partnership agreement in 2016. Swiss Startup Factory, under the leadership of Mike Baur, has attracted more other partnerships that have sought to streamline the mentorship process so investors can as well enjoy a good ground where they can choose promising startups.
At 16 years old, Mike Baur made the first step into the banking industry, and to start off he joined the Union Bank of Switzerland under apprenticeship. After working under the observation of the bank, he was given a full role as a banker, and he worked with the bank for close to 20 years. He rose through ranks and in 2008, he left the bank for another by the name Clariden Leu. At Clariden, he was given a high-ranking position, which he left in 2014 to start his journey as an entrepreneur. Despite success as a banker, he still left all the opportunities to pursue his dream, which was to become a successful entrepreneur.
