Mike Baur, the Smart Businessman with Smart Investments

Apart from being a smart businessman, Mike Baur has always had a penchant for giving startups the opportunity to thrive through strategic investments. But after doing so for a while, he figured that he needed to start his startup factory so that it can be much more effective doing what he did best – invest in startups.

 

Before embarking on that, Mr. Baur has been in the banking industry for over two decades, which has made him brilliant when it comes to seeing potential in up and coming businesses. Once he spotted the potential in a startup area of business, he and a few of his brilliant, like-minded friends joined forces to start the Swiss Startup Factory. And needless to say, the rest was history.

 

His co-founders are Oliver Walzer and Max Meister, who put their funds together to start the Swiss Startup Factory back in 2014. Three years later, things are looking up for the company since it has overcome its fair share of milestones and things are looking up for them.

 

In early 2016, Mr. Baur and his brilliant and committed team lead their company, the Swiss Startup Factory through an accelerator program with the Goldback Group. It also made a point of partnering with the Fintech Fusion in February on that same year. And due to his hard work and dedication, wall street journal profiled his work on both startup investments as well as Swiss banking and general entrepreneurship.

 

Apart from being a brilliant businessman and entrepreneur, Mike Baur also holds public speaking forums in a bid to reach out as many people as possible. There are a lot of young people who want to follow in his footsteps and get to know how he got to where he is at the moment. One notable speech he gave was on the world web forum where he was one of the esteemed speakers.

 

Mike Baur also gave another notably moving speech at the start summit. And besides being a jack of all trades, Mr. Baur hasn’t slacked in his initial quest, and he has been doing such a good job ensuring that his commitment in funding startups all over the Swiss digital front is still intact.

 

When asked why he chose to try a hand in other investment fields other than banking, Mike Baur said that “its just no fun being a Swiss banker anymore,” just showing that the business acumen has a sense of humor.

 

The Lacey and Larkin Frontera Fund

The Lacey and Larkin Frontera Fund is an organization that mainly focuses on the Hispanic community. Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey also focus on the plight of immigrants, which heavily ties into the plight of the Hispanic community.

Much of the Hispanic community consists of immigrants—especially in area of the Untied States that borders Mexico. The Fund supports local humanitarian organizations in Arizona that give aide to immigrants in need and the Hispanic community.

Stormfront.org

Stormfront.org is a website that claims to advocate for the rights of European Americans. It provides a public safe space for European Americans to express their opinions and struggles concerning the subject of race. This website has a reputation of being a “hate site,” though in reality there are a wide range of opinions expressed on this site and its members have different views and affiliations. Some people have no political affiliations, at all, but are just interested in matters that affect them as white people in the contemporary United States of America.

Members publicly communicate with each other via forums about current events and personal situations. The whole point of this website is to point out racially motivated injustices that have been committed against white people that are not being reported in the mainstream news.

Black Lives Matter

Black Lives Matter is organization that was formed to remind everyone that Black lives have value. It was founded in 2012, following the murder of a teenager by the name of Trayvon Martin by a white/white-passing man named George Zimmerman.

In court, Zimmerman was acquitted of murder. This outraged people who believed that Zimmerman had wrongfully profiled Trayvon as thug due to Trayvon’s appearance as a “threatening” black male with a hood over his head.

Ever since 2012, Black Lives Matter has held protests to decry the violence that police have been repeatedly subjecting Blacks to—especially Black males.

However, Black Lives Matter does not just take on oppression from the hands of whites—it also takes on oppression of blacks within the black community. Throughout black history in America, there have always marginalized people within the black community. However, for much of black America’s history, everyone was involved in a general fight for the Black community to gain rights in American society. In this general fight, women and LGBTQ folks took a back seat as cis-gender black males took the spotlight. Read more: Jim Larkin | Crunchbase and Michael Larcey | Twitter

Now, Blacks have progressed enough in society where they can focus on more than just general rights. They are turning their attention toward fine tuning the amount of opportunity and quality of life for all in their communities.

BLM uses the internet to communicate with members and the public about current events concerning issues that affect Black people. They make people aware of the Black perspective, and Black needs.

Black Lives Matter expresses concern for very legitimate issues, such as discrimination on various levels of society and in various situations. However, the leaders and members of the movement espouse rhetorics that are arguable, and that not everyone in the world agrees with.

Some of these rhetorics are seen as highly opinionated and one-sided. In this respect, BLM can actually be compared to stormfront.org.

The only difference between the two is that it is politically correct and socially acceptable to express the views concerning the well-being of blacks, no matter how negative sounding, but not the well-being of whites.
