The Swiss Start Up Factory (SSUF) provides a startup accelerator program as well as comprehensive startup services for entrepreneurs. The accelerator program model includes a three-month program designed to give startups the solid, adaptable foundation their work requires. With decades of experience behind them, the designers of SSUF created an action-based curriculum with the tools new entrepreneurs require.
Based on the “lean canvas” methodology, the Accelerator program includes high quality pitch instruction, individual mentorship, and collaboration and networking opportunities with other entrepreneurs and investors. Accelerator participants will, through achieving the eight milestones of the program, found their new company. With or without a cash investment, entrepreneurs in the program have access to support from experienced professionals from the lean startup approach model, multiple training, support, and networking events, work space for the entire team, broad business support (including sales, finance and accounting, legal), and mentorship.
The Accelerator program itself includes a wide variety of hands on learning and networking activities including working sessions, input meetings, networking dinners, sales training, and team building.
For entrepreneurs and startups who may not need a full Accelerator program, SSUF provides high-quality, comprehensive services for all aspects of business growth.
With nearly two decades of Swiss Banking experience and two MBAs, he provides expert advice to the entrepreneurs he mentors. The SSUF has become the highest ranked privately financed early stage ICT Accelerator in the country, one of the only of its kind to provide not only an Accelerator program, but a wide suite of comprehensive startup services for a range of new entrepreneurs.
Perhaps most importantly, for any new startup, are the networking experiences provided by programs such as SSUF. This was a key consideration in Mike Baur’s startup planning, and all SSUF programs include access to a broad network of investors and like-minded entrepreneurs. Mike Baur has had decades of experience to see the importance of building networks in small or new businesses, and this importance is clearly demonstrated throughout the many services SSUF provides.
