Mentorship is important in business as you learn to build relationships that are both close and personal and those that are business only. All relationships are built on trust and they are best built when working with others that are ambitious and passionate about building businesses that can help create jobs as well as change the entire economy of a country. This is true of Mike Baur’s Swiss Startup Factory, and it’s still going strong since its launch in 2014.
Many of the mentors on board today with SSUF are excited to work with young startups because they want to inspire creativity. Those who are most experienced in the world of business know that regardless of the size of the company, it is vital that you not only bring skills to the table, but you also need to bring creative minds to the table as well. Allowing your team to be creative is important so that they can spread their wings, share their own ideas and focus on what is most important. The most important aspect of any business is to not only share ideas, but it is also to encourage each other. Mentorship plays an important role in this aspect, and that won’t change any time soon.
Baur has done an outstanding job of bringing aboard CEO’s as well as partners of other companies that have vast experience in various niche markets. Those who are working with SSUF currently have skills in various industries, and are not partial to the tech industry only. While the tech marketplace is still thriving, it is important that the most creative minds of any niche market get the opportunity to take a fresh look at projects outside of what they typically work with, so that they can have the opportunity to engage with and network with others that they can build companies with.
Those who are passionate about business and mentorship at SSUF are making a contribution to the economy. Jobs are being created and media opportunities are becoming available to best serve those startups that are in their early stages. Whether the mentors are involved in marketing, finance, or some other field, those who work with the program at SSUF will benefit tremendously and be two steps ahead of their competitors.
