Master of Business Administration from Bern University, Switzerland and from the University of Rochester, Switzerland. At the early age of 16 he worked in the Union bank of Switzerland as a young apprentice throughout the 1990s, up to 2008. He excelled at his task given him which propelled him upward within the bank because he had a niche for providing successful financial information to the bank’s wealthy investors. Mike continued to work for other banking institutions in an upward mobile, managerial positions.
Mr. Baur enjoyed and learned a lot about the banking industry over the years, but he soon decided to follow his desire to be hands-on in helping new entrepreneurs achieve their goals. He began making plans to focus on his ability to help young tech business owners which occurred in 2014 when Mike and two other partners founded the ‘Swiss Startup Factory.’
Under the ages of Mike Baur, the Swiss Startup Factory invests in digital entrepreneurs in Switzerland by offering mentoring ideas and coaching support. Swiss Startup Factory also provides a temporary office space in Zurich to give entrepreneurs a realistic business environment to enable them to grow and learn how to reach their goals.
Mr. Baur and his partners explain why they call their company a factory. They say that in any factory, people work hard and deliberate which is what they expect from their neophyte business owners and the Swiss Startup Factory professional staff. With this premise, Mike believes that in order to pursue your business goals, you should leave your 9 to 5 job and concentrate fully on your future business.
The Swiss Startup Factory has grown exponentially and is now considered the No. 1 privately financed startup accelerator in Switzerland. Swiss Startup Factory operates on a recruiting platform where young entrepreneurs enter a contest and 30 of them whose projects are under $1 million. The business entrants appear before a panel of established financial experts, including Mike, to pitch their business models. The panel members then award the winners with an induction into the Swiss Startup Factory incubator concept.

Also, CTI Investments asked Mike to be their Deputy Managing Director, a position which he accepted. In 2016, the Swiss Startup Factory aligned with BV4, a private Swiss firm that enumerates the financial value of specific brands and different intangible assets, then develops them as a management brand.

Another creation that came during this time was his most important product, The Habanero Shaker.
Perhaps the most popular and powerful pepper in the world, “The Original Habanero Shaker” is a one of a kind creation. This shaker is known for having the perfect combination of both flavor and heat. The heat of this unique shaker comes from the capsaicin molecule. It is known to have an average 200,000 Scoville units of heat. This is more than five times the heat in the average Jalapeno.
Habanero’s originated in Chinese culture. Historically they are known for their high levels of capsaicin which sparks the brain to produce endorphins ultimately taking pain away from the body. Often referred to as the ‘Runners High’, these endorphins help to keep the body calm and soothed.
Joel Friant has used his knowledge to impact the world in a major way. Both his businesses and products should continue to impact the culture for many years to come.
