Unless you know the local languages you don't have much chance as you will be unable to communicate with at least 50% of your clients in their own language.

The establiushed players in this market are having a tough time, Switzelrand is in a period of laying people off. The Euro/Chf exchange rate has hurt the economy badly. Expats are being flown in and out to do the work, it is cheaper to fly/hotel than to hire in country.

No idea what business sector you're in but from your post, you don't seem to have much idea about setting up a business.

Swiss Authorities Online (ch.ch) has a page with links on becoming self-employed/ setting up a business in Switzerland. It might be of use to you:

Re: New recruitment business in Switzerland.. Help needed

Hi Fred.
I'm currently investigating in doing the same.
We could share some ideas.
Anyway, for the Seco labour license, depending on the target you have, it might be requested to the local "Amt für Wirtschaft und Arbeit".
If you require a National licenses, the process shall go via Bern.

Let me know.
P.
