How Kevin Seawright’s New Business Changed A Life

Many people across Baltimore may have been excited this last year when Kevin Seawright announced on the Larry Brown radio show that new housing opportunities were coming to the city through his new company, RPS Solutions Inc. But probably nobody was as blessed to have the opportunity as Jerrel Brown, a young man that Seawright had once taken under his wings. Brown works for Baltimore’s housing authority, a job that has its perks but still not a salary that allows him to buy a home.

Not long ago Seawright contacted him about buying a renovated home through RPS’s home ownership program, a program that provides financing and lower upfront costs to buyers. Since then Brown has been able to provide his family with a quality house.

Kevin Seawright has been mostly focused on real estate investing and development as Managing Partner of this new company, but his career transcends many years in public accounting and public fund management. A graduate of Notre Dame’s Mendoza School of Business, Seawright holds certifications in accounting and executive leadership.

He served in Baltimore’s public services departments including the Parks & Recreation, public schools and mayoral administrative tasks. He brought CitiStat to Baltimore, a program that uses data analytics to assess department performance and allow the mayoral office to respond to the areas of need. But Seawright also has served in the private sector.

Seawright joined Tito Contactors in 2011, a commercial contracting service in Washington D.C. that includes an array of construction and remodeling services tailored to commercial clients. Seawright allowed the company to maximize its operations through implementing new budgeting strategies.

In the midst of a rebuilding boom in Newark, Seawright was chosen to come be the Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer of the city’s Community Economic Development Corporation.

Kevin Seawright led several new rebuilding programs while there, but in 2016 decided to focus on his new goals at RPS Solutions. Seawright has mentored other young men besides Brown and has coached youth sports throughout his career.

He’s also been a leader at the Babe Ruth Museum in his spare time, and a father to a young girl named Tia.

About the Swiss Startup Factory

 

In 2015, Mike joined forces with his two partners to found, Swiss Startup Factory, today’s premier privately-financed and sovereign startup accelerator in Switzerland. Mike became fascinated with the subject of finance and banking way back as a teenager. Today, Mike feels proud for making his childhood passion his career. The idea for creating Swiss Startup Factory came from Mike Baur’s experience as a startup investor. Mike Baur’s Swiss Startup Factory would be used as a business execution platform to help Swiss start-ups get to the next level.

 

Mike Baur uses the canvas approach to bring his ideas to life. That means he has to test any idea before bringing it to the market. As such, Mike doesn’t come up with ideas that seem fantastic but irrelevant to the market. Building a product that is unrelated to your target market doesn’t make sense. In fact, this is a waste of money, energy, and time. Aspiring entrepreneurs should invest in a minimally available product or service, measure its relevance to the market, learn from the market feedback, and validate the results.

 

Startup acceleration is an intensive process. As such, Mike Baur’s daily schedule changes quite often depending on startups’ needs. He usually gets up at around 5 am when almost all his emails are answered. With this, Mike can focus on interacting with young tech entrepreneurs instead of sitting behind his laptop screen to respond to emails. His most important thing is to interact with start-up owners. Mike Baur feels excited about virtual and augmented reality and is convinced that reality will change the world and impact the startup industry in the future.
