The Vaud Economic Promotion relies on the three different following partners:
- Development Economic – State of Vaud (DEV), which has created a database for companies from abroad looking to set up business here.
- Local regional associations, which provide detailed information on the availability of other sites or premises in the canton.
- Private service-providers such as the Vaud Chamber of Real Estate and the Union of Swiss Real Estate Professionals (USPI), who will be your point of contact for rentals.
Looking for premises or infrastructure to develop your business? Use this interactive tool to visualize locations of technology parks, industrial areas and business centers in the whole Vaud region.
Companies looking to establish themselves in the region can also take advantage of help from the various technology parks and incubators in the canton of Vaud.
Furthermore, to meet the demands of companies arriving in the canton and to attract new ones, Vaud has progressively begun to favor the emergence of business centers offering a variety of services, most notably flexible premises and additional services.
Sharing a workspace with other companies has the advantage of reducing rent and investment costs, while some co-working sites also pool their peripherals (printers etc.) This new practice can also be found in the canton of Vaud – here is a selection of locations:

Vaud has over 50 strategic sites, spread out around the canton. These development poles offer many advantages, including sites that are approved with facilities already in place, and with easy access for firms looking to establish themselves there.
For any information regarding the availability of sites in the canton of Vaud, please contact directly either the Office for Economic Affairs (SPECo) or the regional economic development associations, which have a very up-to-date list of sites that are available in the area in question and which will be able to provide you with details on current locations.
