Setting up a company

Setting up a company is exciting, but it raises questions about legal form, budget or insurance. Together, we can clarify all these uncertainties.

Setting up your own company

Before you get started, there are a few things you need to consider. But with the right support, you’ll be perfectly prepared.

Are you ready to finally get started with your company? Before you do, there are still a few things to sort out: what is the right legal form for you? Which insurance policies and permits do you need? What is a sensible budget? When will you be liable to VAT and where do you need to register?

The Bernese Innovation Ecosystem can answer these questions and smooth the way for you to set up your company.
