Startup businesses are always difficult to bring from conception to reality. Obstacles present themselves in ways that were not seen during the planning process. This can provide challenges that were impossible for entrepreneurs to imagine. It is important to be prepared for these types of circumstances and have the resources to orchestrate a plan to get through them.

Mike Baur understands this process very well. He has dedicated his time to helping startup companies overcome these tremendous barriers. The Swiss Startup Factory was created to assist businesses in developing innovative ideas and seeing them through to a successful destination.
