Mike Baur’s SSUF Joins the Fusion with Geneva

Mike Baur’s SSUF Joins the Fusion with Geneva

Acceleration programs for young startups are now the rage in Switzerland, all because of Co-Founder Mike Baur and the Swiss Startup Factory. They have now joined forces with Fusion, another Fintech accelerator program. This amazing and intricate pre-selection process along with startup acceleration, networking, and mentoring is yielding big results for those entrepreneurs that need a hand up with starting their business. Baur and his partners know what it takes to get started, and all have a background in finance which makes the process easier for those who choose to participate with their teams in the acceleration program.

 

Baur and his other partners are all ex-bankers, and much of their experience in recent years has been with the fintech industry. The industry is growing and it’s great news for Baur and his partners that chose to invest in this new endeavor. While collaboration, an education in legal requirements is important there is another goal at stake. These men want to use the Fusion and Swiss Startup Factory to bring the French and German parts of Switzerland back together.

 

Each partner has their own goals and ideas about how their acceleration programs should work, yet they have been able to come together and collaborate and share ideas for the betterment of those entrepreneurs that have chosen to be involved. Michael Hartweg, one of Mike Baur’s most renowned partners has vast experience in derivatives, so he’s a big part of the pre-selection process as well as helping to mentor the team members on financial goals and how to maintain financial health throughout the launch of their business.

 

Every step of the journey has been evaluated and measured by Baur and his team in order to ensure that what they have to offer these entrepreneurs is nothing less than sound advice, and that it’s helpful in getting them to where they want to be as a business. The founder of Fusion, Guillame Dubray says that “Digital transformation is everywhere”, and this is why it’s their time to shine in the fintech industry. Switzerland has struggled for far too long in the area of collaboration, and that is because there are some language barriers in these respective areas. This is another goal of the meeting of the minds for Fusion as well as for the SSUF.

 

Both teams are excited and have a positive outlook regarding how this could potentially change how the Swiss do business as well as how they work together across the country. Mike Baur along with his team and the team of Guillame Dubray from Fusion have decided that they are going to focus on innovative platforms and driving teamwork from start to finish to foster a spirit of collaboration in how business is done in Switzerland.

Workers in Manhattan are More Secure In Shared Office Spaces

 

Among the many problems that people face in the workplace is the constant fear of losing their job. This is especially true of environments that are filled with a lot of politics and a boss that is trigger happy when it comes to firing people. This type of anxiety that comes with working at a regular workplace often leads to job burn out. Also, a lot of people have to take a leave even though they are not in the best financial position to do so. Fortunately, shared office spaces are on the rise in the industry.

 

There are a lot of reasons why people prefer Workville and other co-working spaces for rent throughout Manhattan. For one thing, there is a smaller chance of one losing his own source of income. One of the reasons is that a lot of people that use Workville tend to own their own businesses. Therefore, it is almost guaranteed that if they have the marketing skills, they will manage to make the money they need to support themselves. This is such a change of pace for people who are used to just barely getting by in the workplace. This is another advantage to Workville, people are willing to do more than the bare minimum for their work.

 

One of the reasons that people enjoy working in shared office spaces like Workville is that they are more likely to do what they believe in. They follow their vision. They are also aware of a vision that they are pursuing. As a result, they are more likely to exceed expectations. They are also likely to put in longer hours. People that work for themselves are more likely to achieve financial independence since they have more control over how much they make. Therefore, there are many people who stay focused on the task at hand so that they can out earn their previous job.
