This section of gruenden.ch provides a general overview of considerations and requirements for non-Swiss citizens interested in pursuing entrepreneurial goals in Switzerland.
Setting up a business requires thorough planning and preparation, including a business plan, a financial concept as well as knowledge of framework requirements, legal structure, business location, insurance and tax matters.
Just as importantly: careful consideration needs to be given to your own set of skills, qualifications and strengths.
The first years of business operations are decisive for the sustainable success of your company and require a sound and prudent management.
The day-to-day running of your company will involve a host of different topics, such as bookkeeping, marketing and communication, internationalisation, human resources and, as the case may be, change of legal form.
