Swiss Startup Resources
Below are some potentially useful links for people interested in starting a company in Switzerland. Note that it is heavily biased towards my own experience (university research, technology, German-speaking Switzerland).
If you know of another link or if you find an error, please contact me. If you are interested in me helping out with your startup, let me know.
Startup Toolchain - comprehensive list of online tools and resources. Somewhat biased towards software, but useful nonetheless.
