Business Sweden was founded on January 1, 2013, by a merger of the Swedish Trade Council and Invest Sweden. With offices in 50 countries, we facilitate and promote the growth of Swedish companies abroad and investment opportunities for foreign companies in Sweden.
Business Sweden's aim is to strengthen and promote Sweden as an attractive, innovative and competitive business partner. We support Swedish companies in reaching export markets and create business opportunities for small and medium-sized enterprises to grow internationally.
Our mission is also to attract foreign direct investment to Sweden and to facilitate for international companies to do business in Sweden. We give support when it comes to different kinds of investments such as Greenfield establishments, expansion of existing business, strategic partnerships with Swedish companies, capital investments and M&A’s. Whether the interest is to gain access to the Swedish market or world class R&D in leading industries, we connect international companies with investment opportunities in Sweden and support them in setting up their businesses
Business Sweden is owned by the Swedish government and the industry, represented by the Ministry for Foreign Affairs and the Swedish Foreign Trade Association. The shared ownership provides access to contacts and networks at all levels.
