Developing your project

Helping project developers

Making the region attractive and creating value

Promove provides free, impartial and neutral services and direct advice to foreign and Swiss companies. The support and assistance aim at easing the companies’ establishment, their development, and their retention in the region.

Promove gives recommendations to all company developers and coaches them to help them find a site or premises, start a new activity, deal with the administrative process and tax and financing questions.

When appropriate, Promove can put companies directly in contact with reliable partners and help companies integrate the existing economic fabric.

As a Regional Agency for Economic Development recognized by the Law for promoting economic development (LADE), Promove informs and guides project developers who wish to receive grants from the canton to finance a study, an organizational arrangement, an event, or an infrastructure.

Financing assistance, LADE subsidies

Many funding agencies are designed to help and support innovation and business development. At the cantonal level, the Law for promoting economic development (LADE) makes funding available to support the start, set up, or development of companies or projects of regional scale. In close collaboration with the Service for the development of economy and innovation (SPEI), Promove informs project developers about funding possibilities and the steps needed to access them.

This secure and reliable platform allows companies to electronically process authorization, application and reporting procedures in a single location. It is currently available mainly at the federal level and will in the future also be available in many cantonal authorities and at a municipal level. EasyGov relieves and saves costs - for both companies and the authorities.
