Start your business

In Switzerland, companies are created in two stages:
Choosing the right legal form for your business

First of all, you need to choose a legal form for your business. The Vaud Economic Promotion can give you information to help you with this choice.

Some partners in the network of the Office for Economic Affairs and Innovation, for example the Vaud Chamber of Commerce and Industry (CVCI) and Genilem, can even provide personalized advice based on your project and your objectives.

Entry in the register of commerce

Once you have chosen your legal form, you will have to enter your business in the register of commerce.

Partners in the Vaud Economic Promotion network

The Vaud Economic Promotion network works very closely with several key players who can support and guide you when you set up your business.
