The key steps for starting a company

Are you ready to start your own company? We applaud your decision! This page provides you with step-by-step instructions on the specific startup process and what you can expect for each phase in terms of preparation, during the formation process, and beyond.

1.Draw­ing up a busi­ness plan

A de­tailed busi­ness plan is the first build­ing block for a suc­cess­ful com­pa­ny. It pro­vides in­put for de­ci­sions by the start­up team, en­sures trans­paren­cy, and is an es­sen­tial tool for in­still­ing con­fi­dence in ex­ter­nal in­vestors.

2.Choos­ing the le­gal form

When start­ing a com­pa­ny, the choice of le­gal form is a crit­i­cal de­ci­sion, as it has le­gal, fi­nan­cial, and tax ef­fects. Learn about the ad­van­tages and dis­ad­van­tages of le­gal forms in Switzer­land and how you can use a share­hold­er or part­ner­ship agree­ment to es­tab­lish clear re­la­tion­ships be­tween all par­ties in­volved.

3.De­ter­min­ing how much cap­i­tal will be need­ed

How much cap­i­tal will you need in the months and years ahead?What types of fi­nanc­ing are avail­able to cov­er this amount? A fi­nan­cial and liq­uid­i­ty plan will pro­vide you with an overview of the funds re­quired, as well as how to best man­age your com­pa­ny’s avail­able liq­uid­i­ty.

4.Re­serv­ing your web ad­dress
