About Business Sweden

Business Sweden's purpose is to help Swedish companies to reach their full international potential. Business Sweden also strives to attract foreign direct investments to Sweden.

Business Sweden offers Swedish companies strategic advice and hands-on support. Business Sweden is owned by the Swedish Government and the Swedish business sector, a partnership that provides access to contacts and networks at all levels. Business Sweden was founded on the first of January, 2013, by a merger of the Swedish Trade Council (Exportrådet) and Invest Sweden. The Swedish government is represented by the Ministry for Foreign Affairs and the business sector by the Swedish Foreign Trade Association.

Business Sweden has Swedish and foreign consultants in 50 of the world's most promising markets. The trade offices are usually located in the country's capital, or its financial centre. Business Sweden has a close collaboration with Swedish embassies, consulates and chambers of commerce throughout the world. This extensive global presence gives unique market expertise, resources to find international business opportunities and to assist Swedish export companies to be in place.

Business Sweden is working through a number of Swedish export concepts, including export counselling, skills development, market research, trade missions, fairs and business matchmaking.  For some of Sweden's major industries, Business Sweden work with concepts such as Try Swedish! (food) and SymbioCity (ICT, energy and environmental technology, urban planning) as well as SymbioCare (Health Care and Life Sciences).
