The initiative launched with an event organized by Business Parc Reinach at Campus Muttenz of the University of Applied Sciences and Arts Northwestern Switzerland. Experts spoke about opportunities and risks associated with self-employment, presented approaches and tactics, and showcased the services offered by the participating organizations.
