Innovative start-ups that meet the requirements established by the Ticino’s cantonal Tax Law can benefit, since January 1, 2018, from tax breaks. The 10 finalists of Boldbrain Startup Challenge, which are already incorporated, are also eligible for such tax breaks. In order to facilitate access to venture capital, individuals resident in Ticino who invest (e.g. purchase of shares) in innovative start-ups based in the Canton can also benefit from special tax treatment.
Thanks to these incentives, Ticino has become one of the most attractive Cantons in Switzerland for the foundation and the development of innovative start-ups.
