How Mike Baur Is Supporting Startups Through The Swiss Startup Factory

Mike Baur is a Switzerland entrepreneur and former banker whose passion for entrepreneurship inspired him to start an incubation facility that is helping young entrepreneurs gain vital skills. In 2014, Mike founded the Swiss Startup Factory, a startup incubation center that offers a three months training session after which a startup can face the market with all the necessary skills and experience. Since establishment, the Swiss Startup Factory has incubated more than 20 startups that have emerged as strong businesses few years later.

 

To make the incubation process a success, Mike Baur has invited professionals from different industries who have experience in entrepreneurship. Startups are allowed to enjoy live interactions with professionals whose careers have been a success for a long time and the company is looking to include more service that will even tap more talent.

 

Accounting and IT support

At the onset, few startups have the right infrastructure to cater for the accounting and IT needs that face them. Some fail because they don’t have the right skills and knowledge to work in the competitive environment. With the Swiss Startup Factory incubation program, startups are offered IT and accounting support that also directs them on what to do in specific instances. The company works with prolific accountants and IT experts, who take the startups through the whole learning process.

 

Accounting/legal support

The legal side of business is one of the things you cannot ignore when you want to get results. The Swiss Startup Factory offers legal advice that prepares the startups for the harsh legal environment that exists in the competitive business world. They also help the startups to draft several vital documents that help them to operate in tandem with the requirements of the law.

 

Post-accelerator support

A startup is not let to wander alone after the three months of incubation because most of the concepts shared may not be as easy to implement. Therefore, the Swiss Startup Factory offers post-accelerator support that allows the startups to have a smooth sail while implementing some of the concepts passed to them during the mentorship stage.

FullCycle Hires Sam Tabar to Help Develop Environmentally Friendly Renewable Fuels

 

Sam Tabar is known as a bit of a journeyman in the business world. His expertise and work ethic has made him a top commodity around the globe. Despite being born in the U.S. to an English speaking family, Tabar is multilingual, speaking foreign languages such as French and Japanese as a result of his work with different nations.

 

Tabar’s name is well respected in the hedge fund management industry. He’s held leadership positions in numerous financial institutions. Tabar is able to combine his knowledge of law and business like no other businessman before him. Many professionals believe this gives Tabar a leg up on the competition.

 

Tabar’s innovative thinking really shows in the creative asset raising strategies he develops that in turn make companies more lucrative than before. He gained a lot of notoriety with the work he did while employed at Hong Kong based company PMA Investment Advisors LTD.

 

Up and coming environmental company FullCycle Energy Fund, was the most recent company to take notice of Tabar’s expertise and skill. They hired Tabar as their new Chief Operating Officer (COO), making Tabar responsible for the fund management strategies of the company. A position that comes with a lot of pressure, but if anyone’s up to the task it’s Tabar.

 

Tabar being himself, is full of glee to be the new COO of FullCycle Energy Fund pressure or no pressure, as PR Newswire describes. Despite his many accomplishments and achievements, he is honored that FullCycle believes in him. Maybe because Tabar is a bit of an environmentalist himself. Tabar has been interested in developing affordable renewable resources and fuels that will do away with environmentally harmful nonrenewable resources and fuels for a while now. A dream he knows won’t come true without the creation of affordable environmentally friendly fuels.

 

Tabar knows he has his work cut out for him. It’ll be very difficult to persuade society to transition to alternative fuel sources since it’s become so dependent on polluting sources like fossil fuels. Tabar is more than confident that his work with FullCycle will bring about a steady solution in due time though.

Relmada Therapeutics v. Laidlaw & Company

For a number of years, Laidlaw had been Relmada Therapeutics investment banker — primarily assisting the company with business-related interactions. This changed, however, in December of 2015 — when Relmada Therapeutics began their restraining order, and eventual lawsuit, against their former investment banker, Laidlaw.

This, of course, is not a decision made without reason. Relmada Therapeutics began their lawsuit against Laidlaw after the latter published a press release — following a meeting between Matthew Eitner, James Ahern, and Relmada’s chief executive officer — indicating that a proxy contest would be held in order to appoint five new directors to Relmada Therapeutics; something that was neither in the best interests of Relmada Therapeutics nor requested.

Something I noticed myself is that many people seem to have had negative interactions with Laidlaw & Company; and that many of these complaints are more recent. In recent years, a variety of companies have taken similar measures to Relmada Therapeutics against both Matthew Eitner and James Ahern — and Laidlaw & Company. These complaints, however, went unreported by Laidlaw & Company.

All in all, I personally believe Laidlaw & Company is a bit of a shady company. While many may consider what they did to Relmada Therapeutics to be an honest mistake, I find it hard to give them the same benefit of the doubt — simply because they had complaints from other companies in the past, a majority of which going unreported by Laidlaw & Company, as aforementioned. Additionally of note is that many past workers have filed lawsuits against the company in the past — a majority of these actually being settled, likely due to being an in-company matter.

Goettl Air Conditioner Opens its Doors to Service Las Vegas and Henderson Area

Goettl AC brand returns to Las Vegas. In April 2016, we opened our doors to service Las Vegas and the whole Henderson area by offering maintenance, replacement and repair services on all air conditioners and heating systems irrespective of the make or brand.

Our arrival in Las Vegas has brought an opportunity for the creation of new jobs for talented local HVAC technicians. Goodrich, the CEO of Goettl said that the company was planning to hire about 50 new employees and eventually expand to over 250 employees in three years’ time. He also revealed that our main initiative was to hire veteran technicians with a lot of experience. He added that Goettl was keen on not only creating employment, but also successful careers.

Goodrich announced the creation of an endowment fund that will be called J. Duncan Goodrich Air Conditioning Technology Program. On top of the fund, we also have a scholarship fund called Kenneth D. Goodrich CSN Post-9/11 Veteran HVAC Fund. Through the fund, we will be providing graduating war veterans with all the necessary tools required to kick start their HVAC careers.

Watch Goettl’s YouTube Video to learn more.

Goettl was established in the year 1939. Until 2013, the air conditioning brand was owned by the Goettl family. However, when the opportunity came in 2013 to buy the brand, Goodrich immediately seized it.

As our success grew in Arizona, Goodrich was eager to return the Goettl brand back to Las Vegas – his home town. This is because he has fond memories of the city from his past experiences with his father. Since his father believed in the Goettl brand, he chose to purchase the company.

Goettl Air Conditioning is the best and most philanthropic company in Phoenix, and they are going to help as many veterans as they possibly can with awards that help people. There are people who are going to be able to make their way in the world because of a prize they got from Goettl Air Conditioning, and the company tries to help people where they can. The Post 9/11 Veterans Tools Award is an award that helps veterans who wants to be able to make their life in HVAC.

These people are going to school to learn how to pass their HVAC test, and these people need tools when they begin their careers. Goettl helps them do this. The $1000 prize is going to help people buy the tools they need to begin working, and they can load those tools into their trucks when it is time to do their job. 

Goettl Air Conditioning has been helping people who are working in the trade as their families did. It is something that people are going to want to learn about when they are ready to go to school, and it is just as important for people to have a scholarship or prize that will help them. Goettl Air Conditioning and Ken Goodrich have taken great care to make sure that everyone from the Navy veteran to the fourth or fifth generation of an air conditioning company family are going to be catered for. It is going to be easy for these people to restart their lives, and it is going to help them know that they have support in their new lives.
