Find the right retail channels in Switzerland

Switzerland is a special case in the center of Europe. Not being part of the EU, it has its own economic position and in general an affluent population.

This population in 2024 is estimated to be around 8.85 million. The country has witnessed a steady population growth, with a rate of 0.64% in 2024.

Known for its robust economy, Switzerland is a global financial hub with a strong focus on banking and finance. The country also has a high standard of living and a well-developed healthcare system.

Major cities include Zurich, Geneva, Basel, Bern, and Lausanne. Switzerland is characterized by its linguistic and cultural diversity, with four official languages: Swiss German, French, Italian, and Romansh. The country has a mix of influences from its neighboring countries: Italy, France, Germany, Austria, and Liechtenstein.

Our structured approach: scan - Launch - Grow

The best way to learn about a market is to start reaching out and adjust your sales pitch on-the-go. This is what we do in our Scan-Launch-Grow approach. 

1st month

We scan the market

We dive into your product and what sales strategy has worked for you in other countries. We show your offering to various potential distributors or brokers to collect feedback. And we review your competition so that we can determine the best market entry strategy. 

2nd month

We launch your product

Together with you we develop a first pitch for your target group. We extend our long-list of potential targets further and start reaching out, getting to the right decision makers and pitching your product. And we discuss the results with you, in order to optimise your strategy further.

3rd and next months

We grow your sales

We keep searching for new distributor candidates and reach out to them. We also follow-up on previous contacts we had and on leads that you bring in. We introduce you to interested parties, but we can also support in meetings or close deals on your behalf. Every month we review our results.
