Mike Baur spent nearly 20 years within the Swiss Private Banking sector. He eventually made his way up to the commercial apprentice with UBS as an executive board member within the Swiss Banking forum. At the age of 39, in the year 2014, Mike had started out on his entrepreneurial journey. It was then that he started to found his company.
The business that Mike created, Think Reloaded, it is an advisory boutique for those of wealthy families and wealthy individuals. Because Mike has always been involved within the banking committee, it made sense that he would create a startup in Switzerland.
Mike was then featured in the Wall Street Journal where he was spoken about early on in his career. He spends a lot of time within the Swiss entrepreneurship programs and supports a variety of Swiss digital startup’s. He is not only a board member but is also an investor. Mike joined a number of friends to form a partnership where they are now the #1 privately financed startup accelerators in Swiss Startup Factory in Zurich, Switzerland.
He holds a MBA which he earned at University of Rochester in New York. He also has his executive MBA which he obtained at the University of Berne.
Mike used the idea of the Swiss Startup Factory and purely privately financed accelerator program from his own experience within the early stage startup sector. After having been involved in the startups, Mike asked himself why should he not come up with an idea to offer a boot camp for teams to help them raise the level of startup stages behind the new businesses. They offer more than just coaching for their startups.
In order for Mike to feel like he has succeeded throughout the day, Mike Baur’s schedule often changes. There are a number of day’s where his schedule changes from hour by hour and because this is the case, Mike uses the business model canvas approach method. He wants to help others to learn what things are absolutely to die for while other customers might find a new idea because the idea they have been pitched is not worth all the effort that goes into creating a number of startups.
When it comes to the one thing within the business world that Mike get’s most excited for, it’s the idea that you can use virtual reality and augmented reality to showcase your business.
