Switzerland is a country of great opportunities and it is considered a reference in diverse subjects around the globe. The country counts with great universities, stable politics and economy, international companies and good infrastructure. When it comes to entrepreneurship, Switzerland doesn’t stand so far either. Investments in the field have been rising throughout the last five years and relevance has been growing.
Fathi Derder, Vaud FDP National Councillor, entitled his book as “The next Google will be Swiss”. In an interview to the 2017 Swiss Venture Capital Report (you can access the article here), released by Startupticker.ch, Derder supports that the only things missing for Switzerland to “make it to the top” are Talent and Risk Capital.
When it comes to talent, there’s a gap in bringing the right people to the right positions. One of the solutions brought by Mr. Fathi is the Start Up Visa, in which people who want to build something positive, should be welcomed and received to the country. That way, good people with good projects would strengthen the Swiss entrepreneurial environment.
Fortunately, we currently have an accessible opportunity for international talents and great ideas to work for the country! By enabling companies and startups to receive young students and professionals from all over the world, with different experiences and views upon entrepreneurship, the Swiss market is closer to reaching its potential and being part of the youth leadership development AIESEC promotes.
In our Global Entrepreneur project, startups hire interns who work for defined projects from 8 to 12 weeks. It is a low cost and low bureaucracy process that allows companies to reach great results!
