Mike’s company, Swiss Start-Up Factory, welcomed a new partner recently. Michael Hartweg will be assisting SSUF with their accelerator program. The program is designed to give support to young startup companies that may not have all the tools and knowledge to succeed in the Swiss business world. The program is especially suitable for any startup company that specializes in digital technologies. Hartweg wants there to be a better selection of startups that the company deals with. He will be assisting in the selection and evaluation of enabled startups that will receive support. The company is currently focused on Fintech startups. It has even partnered with Geneva-Fintech Accelerator Fusion to ensure that his Accelerator Program launches as best as it can.
Mike Baur co-founded Swiss Start-Up Factory in 2014. He had already been the banking industry for over 20 years by the time SSUF was up and running. He brings his vast knowledge of fundraising and financing rounds to SSUF to offer their clients the best support he can. Swiss Start-Up Factory is on a Zurich’s most popular acceleration companies. The company is constantly looking for digital entrepreneurs that have a high probably of thriving in their respective industry. SSUF is willing to provide same-day opportunities that utilize their Swiss and global network. The Accelerator Program is a three-month-long program that any qualifying entrepreneurs can participate in. The program offers services, group coaching, and one-on-one mentoring in an office space right in the heart of Zurich.
The reason they are so focused on Fintech at the moment is because of how many startups it has produced in Switzerland. But no matter how many startups are produced by Fintech, many of them don’t have the potential to survive in the global marketplace. Mike Baur and Hartweg hope that by using SSUF’s programs and network, the smaller startups might have a chance at success. SSUF is much focused on execution and critical authority, which promotes the best talents can ensure the right issues are tracked. Baur, in particular, hopes that this partnership will strengthen the innovative power and expertise of Fintech further. It’s because of how success Swiss startups can be that Baur started Swiss Start-Up Factory in the first place. He only hopes that the rest of the world will one day realize how great Fintech is.
