How to find a business partner in Switzerland

Hello everyone ..

I hope someone can help me know more about how can I find business partner in Switzerland.

I own a company which active in international trade to more than 40 years, mainly in home products, among other things, we are engaged in designing manufacturing and product development.
Recently i took a decision to enter sales in Europe and concluded that excellent place to manage the activity for the European market is in Switzerland.
Now I am looking for a company Switzerland for cooperation, it is better that the company will engage in a similar field, but given that it is a Swiss company that's enough to win this opportunity.
Of course the easiest way for me is to open a company in Switzerland and search for employed to do the job, but according to our business ID this is not the way to doing it.

I've been looking online a month in an attempt to find potential partners in Switzerland and so far this forum is the only link I found the English-speaking Swiss,
Can anyone help me know where I can find what I'm looking for?

Thanks in advance!

Re: How to find a business partner in Switzerland

For your situation it seems like you would have to contact specific companies that would be a good fit. Unfortunately, as you said, it is difficult to find anything in English.

Here is a website that might be a "long-shot" but if you don't have any leads it can't hurt to check it out.
It's called: cofoundme.org
It's aimed more at new startups but worth a try. It's fairly quick to create an account, then you can browse the listings.

Re: How to find a business partner in Switzerland

Have you considered contacting a chamber of commerce for Switzerland and Israel for guidance. Possibly one of these could point you in the right direction:

Re: How to find a business partner in Switzerland

Not sure why the chamber of commerce Switzerland/Israel could be of special help to you - are you from Israel? If not, I recommend to contact the one related to your country. Google will help.

Also, maybe put an ad on this page? https://www.companymarket.ch/

I have a small network of companies around Zurich myself, so if you would like to specify your requirements in a private message, I will be happy to look into the case.

Re: How to find a business partner in Switzerland

I'd suggest that you try to contact a Swiss embassy in your home country for advice, it depends what your home country is but there are Swiss organizations (also governmental) aiding cross-border businesses and cooperation. Like:

State Secretariat for Economic Affairs SECO
http://www.seco.admin.ch/?lang=en

Switzerland Global Enterprise
http://www.s-ge.com/en


Otherwise have you considered attending international industrial events: fairs or congresses for your industry?
