The Swiss Startup Association SSA
Startup Manifesto
Give the SSA a strong voice speaking out for all Swiss startups
by help us crafting our joint political agenda.
Let us know what you think are the most relevant challenges the Swiss Startup Association should address on behalf of its members to make sure the next unicorns are coming from here!

One star = don't bother
Two stars = will not hurt and might have an impact
Three stars = an absolut must, if we can't solve this, it's a big draw back

Feel free to add your own suggestions, too!

All it takes are 5 minutes of your time!
