No, it doesn't. Owning a business here doesn't grant you residency rights. Any business would have to follow the non-EU hiring criteria and prove that they can't find a Swiss/EU national to do whatever job is involved.

Americans especially are particularly toxic right now - if not officially then socially. And I say that as an American. If you manage to make it over here, do not expect an open-armed welcome.
I can't speak for all communes, or cantons.

I've not seen evidence that US citizens, or their money are any less welcome by the residents of Geneva.

To live in Switzerland you either need to be a Swiss Citizen or have a valid permit. This applies to those not employed or self-employed as well as those that work.

Permits for third-country nationals (ie non-EU) are very limited and very difficult to come buy. Most will go to workers in jobs where a Swiss or EU national canít be found.

It is possible but it wonít be based on your wealth, it will be based on what you can bring to Switzerland.

I wish you luck ...
Freudians are my thing and this was a nice one
