Entrepreneurship is the backbone of a country’s economy. With many businesses flocking the economy due to the emerging brands in the market, entrepreneurs need skills on how to set up a business. It is estimated that most start-ups dwindle within the first eighteen months of operation. This is because of the difficulties that arise in the businesses during those months. For that reason, business start-ups need mentors and financiers who can offer support within the first three months of operation. That is where Mike Baur comes in the picture.
