RISC-V business: Tech foundation moving to Switzerland because of geopolitical concerns

WTF?

Swiss Miss Incorporation

Calista Redmond, in which she said: "From around the world, we've heard that 'If the incorporation was not in the US, we would be a lot more comfortable',"

Maybe I'm the only person here involved in RISC-V, but I never heard any serious concerns about this first-hand. I've had people tell me rumors they heard, but no major entity was ever concerned themselves.

I suggest people look into the deep financial benefits of incorporating in Switzerland. While the USA and U.K. have corporate tax rates of 35% and 28% respectively, Swiss land is 7.8%. Personal income taxes are very low. There are also significant privacy advantages.

RISC-V also has serious competition from open-source MIPS architectures which have code-size, performance, and existing market presence advantages compared to RISC-V.
