Can you imagine attending the WorldWebForum and meeting Mike Baur? Baur is the co-founder and managing partner of the Swiss Startup Factory in Zurich, and he is currently a speaker on the investor panel for the WorldWedForum. This collaborative effort is designed to bring entrepreneurs together as well as to help them take their business ideas from the initial launch phase to the active, revenue generating phase. Those who attend as students or those who are investing in the partnership are able to attend the forum free of charge, but those who are not currently a part of this endeavor have the ability to purchase tickets.
The main goal for this collaboration is to help entrepreneurs launch properly, but this is also geared to help them to take innovation to the level of execution. The startup accelerator for SSUF as well as the co-working spaces are integral parts of the puzzle for Baur and his partners. The 3 month accelerator program is designed to give young startups just what they need when they need it most. Everything included the finances, services, mentoring, coaching, and learning how to maximize your office space is all inside this program for those who attend.
Co-working spaces are designed for likeminded individuals who are also developing a business plan and working to create a long-term endeavor. This is an opportunity to network with other ambitious individuals that are seeking out office equipment as well as those who want to seek out the best layout for an effective office space. Those who are a part of this aspect of the program will have access to the conference room, lunch room, and the other important components of the how an office space should work for the collective effort.
One of the most important aspects of launching a startup, namely finance, also means being dedicated to the bookkeeping and learning the ropes on how to manage money to maximize your opportunity. This portion of the forum includes all aspects of the financials from payroll to budget and how to properly note and report every transaction with incoming funds and outgoing as well.
It all matters, and the WorldWebForum was designed for the sole purpose of helping startups get what they need.
