Hussain Sajwani is a successful businessman residing in Dubai in the Middle East. He is the owner of DAMAC Properties, a very prosperous real estate development company in the region. As a boy he worked for his father in the family business for many hours after school. Young Hussain swore that he would never be a self-employed entrepreneur because of the long hours involved. He claimed that he would be a degreed professional so he would be able to work normal hours.
After receiving a degree in engineering from the University of Washington in America, Sajwani returned to Dubai and got a job with an oil company as an engineer. While this seemed to be what he wanted, it obviously was not as he started a catering company that wound up serving food to the US Army very successfully during the Gulf Wars.
In 2002 he formed DAMAC properties, a real estate investment firm that would be the path for the Hussain Sajwani family for earning a fortune. The UAE had just made the decision to allow foreigners to legally and permanently immigrate to the country and Sajwani sensed that a real estate boom was about to take place.
One of Sajwani’s very strong points is his marketing ability. He put the word out by initiating a huge advertising budget with signs all over the countryside. One of his favorite slogans was, “A New Bently With Every Apartment.” His first project was sold out completely before construction could even get started.
The DAMAC owner also uses conservative business practices in order to maintain control and integrity over his business operations. He always purchases the land for his projects by paying cash full in advance. This leaves no question as to title and ownership. He finances very little of the construction and finishing, if any at all. Each project has a separate accounting and bank account so if it fails, it won’t affect any other part of the business.
DACAC currently to date has finished over 19,000 apartments with another 44,000 in differing stages of development. Sajwani is noted for the fine luxury and strong construction of his developments as people love the designs and interiors.

Swiss businessman and entrepreneur Mike Baur is the co-founder and managing partner of a Swiss business called Swiss Startup Factory. Baur quit a 20-plus year lucrative banking career in 2014 to invest in developing startup companies.
This decision resulted in the partnership of Baur with Max Meister and Oliver Walzer in the same year and the launching of Swiss Startup Factory. SSUF partnered with CTI Invest and Baur was named deputy managing director in January 2016. Baur went on to lead partnerships with Goldback Group and Fintech Fusion in early 2016. This partnership included an accelerator program that fundamentally consists of a mentorship and educational program intended to manufacture and build up new Swiss companies.
Referred to as an incubator or accelerator program, SSUF assists Swiss entrepreneurs by providing an abundance of initial services. Promising startups receive an educational process that increases their chances of success. This coaching ranges from funding, rent-free offices, mentoring and training, access to fellow entrepreneurs and capital investors as well as marketing of their products or services.
Swiss Startup Factory directly inspires the startups they work with to enter a contest referred to as a “pitching” contest. This competition is known as the START Summiteer. It comprises startup founders with less than 1 million in funding. They then present in a public speaking forum, their business strategy and plan, product and/or service to experienced financial experts, who then evaluate the startups, rate numerous aspects, and ultimately decide who wins. The appeal to the startup business is the prospect of gaining significant investors. SSUF has established credentials as a trustworthy, successful business incubator.
In 2014, Baur had also created a new firm named Think Reloaded, directed at affluent clients, that delivers sophisticated advice regarding financial matters. In 2016 a union was formed between SSUF and BV4. The purpose is to perform appraisals to help entrepreneurs gain financing by estimating the monetary value of ideas, inventions and other forms of intellectual property. The diversification of these businesses and their connection to Baur shows his ability to perform and grow Swiss businesses, meeting the demand for what it takes to succeed in today’s business environment.
Today, Mike Baur is a Swiss businessman and startup entrepreneur. Baur focuses on financing and fundraising at SSUf. He operates Think Reloaded as well as working in Swiss Startup Factory.

The fast casual food business has been growing in recent years with well-known franchises like Chipotle and Panera Bread, but one restaurant in particular is making a prominent name for itself. Sweetgreen, a high-end salad chain, is revolutionizing the fast casual dining industry. Learn more: http://www.psfk.com/2016/04/psfk-2016-how-sweetgreen-brought-healthy-and-delicious-to-the-busy-psfk-2016.html
Sweetgreen was founded in 2007 by Nathaniel Ru and two friends just three months after the young men had graduated from Georgetown University’s school of business. By 2016, Sweetgreen had grown to 64 locations around the U.S. Nathaniel, a first-generation immigrant whose parents also started their own business, wanted to create a company that was committed to healthy food and happy customers. Eating at Sweetgreen is designed to be simple and comfortable. When you enter a Sweetgreen location you are presented with a row of ingredients including kale, arugula, quinoa, chicken, shrimp and tofu among dozens of others. A team-member walks you through the ingredients to create your own custom salad. It’s a quick and easy process that allows customers to get exactly what they want.
Sweetgreen, from its earliest stages, has been committed to presenting customers with healthy food options. All of Sweetgreen’s ingredients are fresh, organic and locally grown. Sourcing ingredient’s from local farmers is not only beneficial to local businesses, but it adds a unique variety to different Sweetgreen locations. Before opening a new Sweetgreen location, the company meets with the farmers in that area to see what they are growing. Sweetgreen then incorporates that into the selection of ingredients at the new location. Not only does this cut down on food waste, it also exposes customers to ingredients they may not find at other food establishments.

In addition to focusing on healthy ingredients, Nathaniel Ru wanted to insure that Sweetgreen would focus on healthy relationships. The company abides by a set of core values, including creating meaningful connections. The company commits to these values through its unconventional business model. Five times per year the company shuts down its corporate offices so that staff members can spend the day working at a Sweetgreen location and connecting with customers. The company is also unique in the fact that it has no main headquarters. It operates with its three co-CEOs living bi-coastal as they work to expand the company nationally.
With healthy food options and a connection to customers, Sweetgreen is certainly abiding by one of its core values: leave people better than you found them.
