Mike Baur Shares His Thoughts With Red Bull Media On Things Entrepreneurs Go Through

Mike Baur gives young people a chance to make business ideas come to life and go quickly from their incubator stage into complete administrative stage if they can pass the tests of his company, the Swiss Startup Factory (SSUF). The process, though very rewarding does require entrepreneurs to have the right frame of mind throughout it and they need to be prepared to put in all the work it will take to make their business happen. Baur had a question and answer session with Red Bull Media, a media agency that has partnered with the SSUF in which he gave a few pointers about business ideas.

 

Baur said first of all, that spontaneous ideas are an entrepreneur’s best friend because they usually come when you realize there’s a need for a product that hasn’t been met yet. When asked whether it was good or bad to share your idea for the business with others, Baur replied that sharing your idea could help you find others who would agree with it and may want to be a part of your administrative team. But most importantly he said that you should never be afraid to fail because failing the right way will help your business be better as you restart it.

 

Mike Baur was born in Switzerland and has gotten most of his education at the local schools and universities. While still in high school, he decided to go into banking as a career because it was one of the most reputable jobs in Switzerland at the time. He was told at the beginning of his internship at UBS Bank that he could become a well-paid executive eventually if he followed a chart that the manager he met with drew up. Baur set out to do just that, and in 10 years he was already an esteemed advisor at that bank. He would later transfer to Clariden Leu where he sat on the board of executives in commercial banking, but there were events that happened that had him decide to retire from banking while still only 39. It was mostly how the recession of 2008 changed the regulations and outlook on banking the following years that had Baur pursue other options.

 

Mike Baur wanted to go into business investing because he realized there were many brilliant thinkers in the universities but little funding for them to build businesses. He had contacts in groups like CTI and the Goldback Group who he brought together to build an accelerator that brought the university graduates and investors together, and the SSUF has also been a partner of tech research firms like Think Reloaded and FinTech Fusion. The acceleration process for entrepreneurs at these companies usually takes about three months and upcoming businesses even get access to offices upon launch.

 

Adam Milstein Talks About Characteristics That Define Jews In His Blog Post

Adam Milstein is a columnist who writes about more than just news for Israeli journalist organizations like the Jerusalem Post, the Jewish Telegraphic Agency and the Times of Israel; he also offers his thoughts on how Jews and Israeli-Americans can become stronger together. In one of his latest blog posts he mentioned how back in the ancient world, a group of Jewish rebels known as the Maccabees threw off a tyrannical regime of Greek oppressors who had controlled the region in the years after Alexander the Great had conquered it. These Jews were outnumbered and had few weapons with which to fight these armies, but they used other skills and strategies to do it and were successful doing so.

Adam Milstein believes in today’s world, Jews can do the same thing to keep their culture strong for years to come, and it begins with parents instilling characteristics in their children. Those characteristics include courage like the kind the Maccabees had, pride in the nation of Israel and in one’s identity as a Jew, and passion in what you do whether its business, military service, political activism or other patriotism to the homeland. Milstein has spoken at conferences at AIPAC and hosted by the Israeli-American Council in which he has remarked that support and passion for the nation of Israel is higher than ever.

Adam Milstein is a dual citizen of both the US and Israel and prior to moving to the US in 1981 he served in the Yom Kippur War. His career has been in real estate since 1983 when he became a broker at a commercial property firm, and several years later he helped form a privately-owned firm with colleagues David Hager and Robert Neal known as Hager Pacific Properties. The company’s assets value billions in properties across California, Illinois and Texas.

Even though he had adopted American culture in some respects as a businessman and US citizen, Adam Milstein wanted to make sure that Israelis and Jews living in America could stay close to their roots and still be able to be involved with Israel, so that’s why he and his wife Gila started the Milstein Family Foundation. This foundation has been the partner for Jewish-American non-profits like AIPAC and the IAC, and it’s also supported a lot of college-based pro-Israel groups. Sifriyat Pijama B’America is also an important part of the foundation because its helped families learn Hebrew in an easy-to-understand method and teaches young children Jewish stories.
