This website aims to highlight Geneva’s advantages from a business point of view, and provide useful information to both international and local companies and entrepreneurs. The site brings together information from diverse economic sectors and several partner organizations. It is managed by the Directorate General for Economic Development, Research and Innovation, the government body tasked with assisting both companies already in Geneva and companies interested in setting up a business base here. Our services to companies are free of charge.
The Directorate General for Economic Development, Research and Innovation has three main areas of activity:
- Domestic: support and assist local companies and start-ups in Geneva.
- International: presents the Canton of Geneva to foreign companies interested in developing their activities in Europe, the Middle East and Africa, and help companies relocate and develop in Geneva.
- Co-ordination center: the Office fosters links between various economic players in Geneva, either through joint actions abroad or through introductions to encourage the creation and development of companies in Geneva.
This website is the primary means by which the Directorate General for Economic Development, Research and Innovation provides useful information to local and international companies.
