Formulate the business idea

The basis of your company is a good business idea. Ideally, it should be innovative, have a unique selling point and be compatible with your interests, hobbies or profession, so that you can combine different activities.

Formulate the business idea

Self analysis

Ask yourself and your friends and family where your strengths and weaknesses lie. What can you already do? What do you still have to learn? Where do you need external support?

Market segmentation

Think about who your customer should be. Divide the company into smaller homogeneous groups and decide on some segments you want to address with your product or service.

Creating a business plan

Create a business plan that contains the most essential information about your company to have a complete overview. In this way you can bring structure into the uncertain future and deal with problems early on.

Finding the right business idea as a student

Ideas for becoming independent in Switzerland

When you start a business, it is very important that you have a unique, well thought-out and suitable business idea, which you as a Youngpreneur stand behind and are enthusiastic about. In the following we will show you how to find such a business idea.
In the beginning, think about problems that occur again and again in your everyday life or in your environment or that are omnipresent. Afterwards, you should look for solutions or business models on the market that already address this problem. Make a list and find out to what extent these solutions make sense. Now think about what you would do differently or how you could solve the problem more effectively or efficiently. Now you should analyse the extent to which opportunities and risks exist and how you can use opportunities or avoid risks.
What solutions / business ideas already exist?
Are these solutions / business ideas useful?
How can I solve the problem in a better way?
How can I use opportunities and avoid risks?
