Swiss Start-up Factory also has a portfolio source that contains youths that are like-minded and can create and share connections and their future ideas. In addition to this, it offers a serene environment for the entrepreneur youths at a very affordable price. The environment and the offices have well-furnished desks, office space, and conference room.
The office is youth oriented, purposely made to make everyone comfortable and relaxed, since the chamber offers a fitness room, free wifi, Nespresso bar, and shower rooms for those who are tired and would like to relax. Mike is a visionary and a determined leader, and he had always wanted to be in the banking industry since he was young.
