I do not think you can get a permit here until you can use the search function. There is more information on this forum than you can possibly need so have a proper look.

What he said.. and what makes you think starting your own company while abroad will automaticly grant you a permit? If that was the case,everyone would do it.

Its a long and expensive process to get a company started, something you don't do in a few days time.

Re: Make my own company

I knew an American who wanted to set up a company with a Swiss friend. Luzern were happy, but the federal authorities rejected it. It's very difficult even if you have a respected Swiss citizen as your partner.

Re: Make my own company

To be honest I would say it's right to impose some constraints, not many countries are that "hassle free" as the UK where you can start a company with a few quid, that to me is the exception. I fail to see why a person would get a permit just by starting a company....

Well, the Swiss partner of my American friend was told "We've already got enough Americans here".

Substitute "Foreigners" for "Americans" and I think you've got the answer.

I know you have said this but I think there are some crossed wires here. The Swiss authorities will not reject the company they will simply not give the permit. I think that is what you are saying is it not?

The formation of a GmbH /SA/AG/Sarl is more or less a right for any EU / Swiss citizen. Who you have as partners is not relevant but if they are wanting a permit, well that is another story. And companies are registered by canton. Each canton has its own bureau for handing company formation and management. The Bund is not involved.
