Investing in the Canton of Glarus
The Canton of Glarus is business-friendly.
The Canton of Glarus is business-friendly. Thanks to one of the first Swiss business development laws, this industrial region has become an attractive place for business with many advantages. The most important ones are:
- Person-to-person: Glarnerland is big enough to offer companies sufficient room and small enough to allow quick decisions unburdened by bureaucracy.
- Good advice isn't expensive: The Office of Economic Matters supports entrepreneurs who are founding a business just as much as established companies who want to settle here.
- Quality of life over money: In the canton of Glarus, companies can find affordable real estate and well-trained employees. Companies benefit from competitive labour costs and taxes.
- Everything is close: Glarnerland has very good transportation links. Zurich and its airport are only one hour away by car or train, the most important north-south axis runs through the canton, and private planes and helicopters take off and land in Mollis.
Glarus is a member of the Greater Zurich Area.
