To launch a new business worry-free.

Services for start-ups.

Launching a new business is always a great idea. Sometimes, however, the enthusiasm gives way to a series of questions that are not always easy to answer. Or it is not always immediately clear which services are suitable for the business you want to grow and which might be unnecessary, especially in a country that you might only know superficially.

WTC Lugano. All-inclusive, customised consultation.

It’s true. The first time you enter the WTC Lugano you'll find a dedicated team of professionals committed to identifying the answers and solutions necessary to effectively support the launch of a new company in Switzerland, through a preliminary analysis of the client's goals.

A single contact person and all services "under one roof": the WTC guarantees to keep the fixed costs low in order to free-up energy for launching the business.

In 1998, the WTC was certified as a "Center of Excellence" for the superior quality of the services offered and the representativeness of the offices.
