The Swiss Strartup Factory has been the brainchild of former investment specialist Mike Baur as he searches for the best in digital entrepreneurs to invest in. Baur is taking a two pronged approach to the development of the Swiss Startup Factory through an investment plan targeting Swiss digital companies, but also highlighting the best people for Baur’s company to employ to make the most of the many startups that can be found across Switzerland. In recent months, Mike Baur has looked to employ new investment specialists to find the best options in digital technology startups; the Swiss Startup Factory has also developed a partnership with the impressive CTI Invest company headed by Jean-Pierre Vuilleumier.
The linkup with CTI Invest is thought to be one of the most impressive Mike Baur has pulled off as the head of the Swiss Startup Factory, which seeks out the best in digital entrepreneurship for high levels of investment. CTI Invest has also taken a major interest in newly formed digital companies that could form a major part of the Swiss economy in the future; the two companies will work together in a bid to create a partnership that will provide assistance and support for digital entrepreneurs starting their careers in Switzerland. Alongside the partnership the two companies have created many observers feel the partnership agreement will be the first steps taken in Mike Baur moving to replace Vuilleumier as the head of CTI Invest.
The news of the CTI Invest linkup hit the headlines at the close of 2015, but the arrival of former FinTech investment specialist Michael Hartweg has shown the growth Mike Baur’s Swiss Startup Factory has recently undergone. Hartweg and Baur will both act as an advisor for companies looking for more than the video and podcast options offered through the Swiss Startup Factory Website; Hartweg will look to coach the founders and executives from startups where his skills in digital investing will play an important role in financial development.
