Module A: BRANDING

In this module we will focus on the WHO and the WHY of your new venture and how this applies to your brand.

Part One will shed light on Swiss company naming rules, explore why a good name and tagline can be key to your success, and provide exercises that can help you find a great name for your business, product or service.

Part Two will focus on translating that name into key visuals for your brand. We’ll look at different options to create the all important logo (for every budget), how to create a brand’s identity (including fonts, brand colours etc) and at online tools that make creating screen and products a breeze.

Too legit to quit! In this module we’ll check out how to make your small biz street legal.

Part One will explore available legal entities to choose from, the pros and cons of the main legal forms and what it takes to incorporate them (incl. costs).  We’ll also check out when it is mandatory to register the company with the commercial registry,  how that is done and what online tools and services are available to facilitate the registration.

Part Two will check out which insurances are mandatory and which ones optional, take a quick look at the Swiss three pillar social insurance system and what supplemental insurances make sense for a small business.

In Part One you’ll learn who is obligated to keep books under the Swiss company law, what type of accounting is required, how to do it yourself if you are up to the task and how to outsource it (and at what cost), if the numbers game is not your thing.

In Part Two we’ll wrestle the tax demons in submission, getting to know the VAT system and its schedule and meet the corporate tax framework. All in a day’s work.
