Mike Baur, a Swiss based entrepreneur and businessman, is also the co-founder and managing partner of the Swiss Startup Factory. Baur has more than 20 years of banking service in the Swiss banking industry. One of his prime responsibilities at the Factory is fundraising and then dispersing funds during the fundraising rounds.

 

Baur’s educational background includes earning a Master’s of Business Administration (MBA) from the University of Rochester New York and an Executive MBA from the University of Berne. His employment background includes more than twenty years with Charles Leu and Sallfort Bank.

 

The Swiss Startup Factory is an accelerator program based in Zurich, Switzerland. The Factory helps entrepreneurs focusing on the digital industry and provides opportunities to help establish them in the market place. The Factory offers a three month start-up program including the resources necessary such as office space and an entrepreneurial network. The program guides entrepreneurs and start-up’s a professional platform that takes them through a business driven program including establishing ambitious milestones.

 

Mr. Baur left the banking industry to begin investing in start-up companies. He decided he could do a much better job of assisting entrepreneurs and their start-ups through an official entity rather than just on his own. He works closely with the entrepreneurs offering real world experience and advice and helps them set the right course for their own success. His vast background of experience gives him a unique insight into what it takes to succeed.

 

Baur believes it is imperative to guide young entrepreneurs through the start-up process. It is easy to become discouraged and leave the project behind, but it is important to the economy and the community at large to help create new business that is successful in their endeavors. Baur provides not only his advice and experience, but also his encouragement. He shows entrepreneurs how to take a failure, no matter how large or small it may be and analyze it and make it right. He knows firsthand that often times dealing with something seen as a failure or a miscue in the process often ends up being a greater success.

 

As part of his work with the Factory, Baur led a partnership drive with CTI Invest and became the Deputy Managing Director of the entity. Baur also helped establish a partnership with Goldback Group, as well as Fintech Fusion. This further demonstrates his wide range of practical experience and knowledge base.

 

 

We tend to think that a rich, hearty leather is a sign that shampoo is doing its job. However, that lather might just be causing you more heartache than you realize. The best thing for your hair is to ditch the “sham” of your traditional shampoo and embrace the health benefits of no-poo.

SLS Free

Traditional shampoos contain harsh chemicals. Sodium Laural Sulfate, in particular, is known for stripping away the natural oils that protect and nourish your hair which can cause dryness and damage. Other chemicals such as silicones build up in your hair over time which can lead to oiliness and a suffocating scalp.

The beauty of no-poo options is that they never use harsh Sodium Laural Sulfate, and they clean your hair using healthier, more natural methods.

Adam Goldenberg, the co-CEO of JustFab is now changing the name that company to TechStyle Fashion Group. According to Business Insider, Goldenberg felt the name change was necessary because his company was looking to make strides in customer service improvement, and was incorporating big data usage in the customer experience as well. So TechStyle is now starting to become the bridge between fashion shopping and the latest technology developments. Goldenberg and his co-CEO Don Ressler had originally built the company to be for online shoppers, but they’ve seen the benefit of traditional stores where customers can try on the clothing, so there are now stores open in various locations in the US, and Goldenberg and Ressler plan to open more in the near future.

 

Before Goldenberg started this billion-dollar fashion gig, he was working for the parent company of MySpace. He had become a self-made businessman when he was only 15 years old, founding the company Gamer’s Alliance. Intermix Media, the MySpace company had become interested in it and they saw just how special Goldenberg’s talent was. So when he was only 20 years old, he became the company’s chief operating officer, the youngest ever to serve in that position on a publicly-traded company.

 

Adam Goldenberg became friends with another entrepreneur whose company had been bought out by Intermix Media, Don Ressler. Ressler and Goldenberg began to bounce business ideas off of each other, and soon they started founding several marketing brands while working for Intermix Media. These brands became pretty successful and soon MySpace was generating revenue. Unfortunately, News Corporation who bought out Intermix Media in 2005 didn’t take any interest in Goldenberg and Ressler’s companies, so the two men decided that year to leave the company. MySpace was in the midst of a boom that year, but in the long run this would pay off for the two men.

 

Goldenberg and Ressler had been exploring the health and beauty industry, and they started distributing products under a parent company called Intelligent Beauty. In 2010, they got into fashion and started up JustFab, which would later become TechStyle. JustFab became quite a hit in the fashion community with all the functions it hosted and the ideas that reached the ears of celebrities, most notably Kimora Lee Simmons and Kate Hudson who both adopted the company’s fashion line. JustFab also received venture capital funding from several companies including Josh Hannah’s Matrix Partners. Today JustFab runs not only in the US, but has several partners around the globe. https://angel.co/adam-goldenberg

The recent gain in the price of Pendrell Corporation’s share has seen many investors selling off the share. Despite an upward trend and a steady gain of the company’s value, several major investors have decided to sell off their shares targeting profits from the capital gains.

Most investors and investment firms usually buy stocks of companies when the company is a startup or when the company is still growing since their share prices are relatively low. When the company gets on its feet, some investors may choose to retain the ownership of the shares as assets or sell them off in a move to make profits from their investment.

Highland Capital Management provides private equity to companies and invests in various startup companies. In august 2016, they stimulated the financial world when a report emerged signifying that they had also sold off a major stake of Pendrell Corporation.

In the report, Highland Capital had sold over 23,000 shares of Pendrell representing around half the stake they hold in the company. Highland Capital previously owned 11% of Pendrell. This transfer made a good return on the money Highland Capital had invested in the company shares.

Pendrell share prices have been steadily increasing making the company more valuable. This was attributable to the market confidence they had created to the investors through their operational efficiency and landmark deals.

The recent signing of a deal between Memory Technology LLC and Toshiba also fuelled a significant gain in Pendrell shares. Memory Technology LLC is a subsidiary company of Highland Capital. The firm also specializes in licensing and buying intellectual properties.

Highland Capital has been able to accumulate over $18 billion in assets through its able and experienced leadership. The company has benefitted greatly from the leadership of its founders James Dondero, who serves as the company’s president, and Mark Okada, who serves as the chief investment officer.

James has over 30 years’ experience in the financial world having worked at several multinational corporations before founding Highland Capital. James is a graduate of University of Virginia. He is a chartered financial analyst and a certified management accountant
