How Mike Baur Is Impacting The Growth Of Young Entrepreneurs

Getting the right support to push for development is one of the nightmares startups have to deal with often. Every business needs guidance and professional input that allows it to beat the challenges that come along while serving customers. One of the biggest problems startups face is lack of this support and the entrepreneurs behind these ideas are left to deal with complex problems they could avoid if they had a mentor. Among reasons these entrepreneurs have to run the businesses anyway is because getting a mentor is not the easiest thing.

 

These are some of the problems Mike Baur spotted when the idea of launching the Swiss Startup Factory came up. He is working to see that all talented startups in Switzerland get the support they need to manage their businesses well. Mike Baur previously worked in the banking sector as an executive but in 2014 he made the bold move of resigning to venture into entrepreneurship, which turns out was a good idea. He has established himself as a successful entrepreneur and someone prepared to tackle the massive problems present in the world of business.

 

Product development

Developing a unique product is something that demands time and expertise and many startups are not prepared well to handle the challenge. Product development is one of the biggest problems that the Swiss Startup Factory helps young entrepreneurs to handle. Having a good idea is not enough if the design and execution of the idea is not handled well. The product that is churned from the idea should fit within the demands of the market for it to offer the benefits that can steer the business to success.

 

Entrepreneurs are taken through sessions that allow them to understand every bit about product development. The three months coaching program offered by the Swiss Startup Factory is designed to allow entrepreneurs to handle the many challenges that come along after starting a business. There are mentors from leading learning institutions as well as successful entrepreneurs, who have the right information to transform an idea into a successful business.

Bob Reina Helping People Become Better

The CEO and founder of Talk Fusion has more than business on his mind lately, he is actually more interested in helping people than in talking about business. When he talks about his company, though, what you are likely to hear is that Talk Fusion is about building futures, realizing dreams and giving back to communities all over the world. This at first glance seems out of place until you realize that no one is more committed to helping people than Talk Fusion’s CEO, Bob Reina.

He has often said that success breeds responsibility and this idea is ingrained in the corporate culture of Talk Fusion. As a matter of fact, it is so much a part of their culture that it motivates everything they do as a company and as individuals. Bob goes on to say that this is the core reason that they’re always striving to do more and to help more people.

Because of Bob’s attitude and personal commitment to lead by example he has already made his mark on the culture in America. This has come about by his philanthropic work which includes his $1 million dollar donation to the Humane Society of Tampa Bay Florida, his life-saving efforts with the local SPCA Safety Net organization and for his generous support of The House of Life, an orphanage in Indonesia. The orphanage’s founder Pricilla Lydia Brocharda stated that the donations from Talk Fusion and its associates are helping restore the shattered lives of the children in the orphanage.

Bob’s personal involvement in giving back to nonprofits has also inspired him to begin a program that will allow any Talk Fusion associate to donate a free account to any charity of their choice. The free charity account is only available for purchasers of the company’s Custom Monthly Plan which includes customer branding services, complete personalization of the account, and access to a variety of video marketing products offered by Talk Fusion. These products include video e-mail, video newsletters, live meetings, sign-up forms, and video-chat.

It doesn’t matter if it is a second chance to rebuild, money for life-saving medical expenses or his ability to help friends and family, each story about Bob’s passion continues his goal to make the impossible possible for the people his life has touched.

Dick DeVos’ History of Business Development

Dick DeVos is known in the corporate world as one of the most successful business owners in North America. Many people outside of Devos’ hometown of Grand Rapids, Michigan, however, are unaware of the extent of the businessman’s involvement in the political arena. Dick Devos has been incredibly active in the development of social and political initiatives in the Grand Rapids area and has been instrumental in the passage of several laws and legislative agreements. The businessman’s role in the political field happens to be a key factor in the business decisions he executes on a regular basis. Devos’ most recent acquisition of a prominent distillery in Northern California can be linked to several of the convictions he has shown through his political involvement. Devos has shown his focus on the areas of freedom, morality, and capitalism through his political involvement and all of these values have been shown through the billionaire’s most recent acquisition.

 

Dick DeVos is a businessman who’s devotion to the American ideal of freedom is essential to the way he operates his business and professional lives. Devos’ political history includes a large number of notable attempts to stop legislation that would infringe on American freedoms. DeVos’ recent acquisition of the Californian distillery denotes a hint of the freedom that he fights to defend on a political level. DeVos has always been a businessman who equated American freedoms with the business world. This is why Devos has spent countless hours fighting to keep capitalism alive in the United States.

 

To Dick Devos and many Americans like him, capitalism represent the ultimate value of freedom in the United States and abroad. Capitalism represents the freedom of individuals to achieve the American dream of coming from any socio-economic background and making a life for themselves. Although Devos did not personally come from a negative financial background, his father truly achieved the American dream through his development of Amway. Because of this economic system that may not be available to those in other countries, Devos was able to have a life that includes providing an invaluable service through his company and his political involvement.

 

Dick DeVos‘ recent acquisition of the distillery property was more than a simple business arrangement. The acquisition represents the ideals that both Devos and his staff at the Devos Financial Group hold dear. Dick Devos works daily to ensure that American ideals remain relevant in today’s time.
