Entrepreneurial spirit is coursing through Switzerland: more and more young entrepreneurs are setting up their own companies to work independently as skilled tradespeople or consultants or to launch future-oriented business ventures based on innovative business ideas.
Getting off to a flying start made easy for entrepreneurs and start-ups
Not only does PostFinance offer entrepreneurs and start-ups attractive services and free workplaces, but also the opportunity to collaborate in certain areas. In this way, exciting business ideas are developed together.
Free start-up package and support with setting up a company
Regardless of which sector they operate in or whether they are setting up a sole proprietorship, limited liability company or private limited company, PostFinance helps entrepreneurs and start-ups to get up and running with attractive products, expertise and services. Start-ups benefit from free basic services in the first year, for example, which cover day-to-day financial requirements. This includes a business account, the PostFinance Card in CHF and euro as well as e-finance, while other offers at special terms and conditions can be added too. PostFinance also provides invaluable support with setting up a company through its partnerships with the Institut für Jungunternehmen (IFJ) and Netnotar.
Getting your business off to a flying start at the start-up space in Schlieren
Once the company has been set up, the question of a suitable workplace is often raised. Regular dialogue with like-minded people can prove decisive, particularly for start-ups operating in an innovative environment. This is why PostFinance provides free workplaces at the start-up space in Schlieren twice a year. In this inspiring environment, start-up companies can also use meeting and workshop facilities at reduced rates within a modern infrastructure to get their business on the right track together with their own team, customers and investors.
Collaboration with selected start-ups
On the topic of getting started, PostFinance is constantly looking for exciting start-ups to forge an extremely bright future together. This is an exciting opportunity as start-ups work in particular areas, such as administration and technology, financial technology or property and technology, and – provided requirements are met – can be incorporated into PostFinance’s innovation process. Collaboration allows start-ups to benefit from targeted support, while PostFinance has the opportunity to invest in new business plans. The cooperation takes various forms, ranging from partnerships, to customer relationships, to sales support, right through to investment from PostFinance. A good example of the opportunities such collaboration can present is Tilbago, an online debt collection platform. PostFinance supported the start-up from its foundation right through to market entry.
