February 20

Entrepreneurs' Day

Want to set up a company for free on February 20, 2022? Why not.

As the Bank for Entrepreneurs, we founded Entrepreneurs' Day. Together with our partners, our aim is to make sure as many entrepreneurs get off to the best start possible, and to also provide them with attractive offers to thank them for contributing greatly to the prosperity, development, and advancement of Switzerland. 

Get started for CHF 0 

Now you can thanks to Credit Suisse and STARTUPS.CH.

Why are we doing this? Because entrepreneurs form the backbone of the Swiss economy. They think ahead and look beyond what's there to see what could be. They don't become entrepreneurs by accident, but out of conviction.


When starting up your own company, you need to think through everything carefully – from the appropriate legal form and business plan to the right banking package. Are you ready to set up your own company for free on February 20, 2022?
