A Service of USI/SUPSI

This service provides assistance to all those who intend to launch a firm in Canton Ticino.

The Centre for Start-up Promotion is promoted by the Foundation for the Faculty of Lugano of the University of Southern Switzerland (USI) and was founded in collaboration between USI and SUPSI.

The Centre intends to act as a uniting factor in the reality existing in the Ticino area tending to support innovative entrepreneurial projects promoted by young graduates.

The Centre emphasises and makes the most of formative, technical and management abilities present in Ticino, in particular those at USI and SUPSI. Besides this, it avails itself of a net of “Centres of Expertise” to furnish new business people with answers to questions of a technical, management, administrative, legal and financial nature concerning the start-up of a new business.
