Steering Group & Partners

Business Sweden


Business Sweden’s purpose is to help Swedish companies grow global sales and international companies invest and expand in Sweden.

Business Sweden is jointly owned by the Swedish state and the Swedish business sector with a mandate and a mission to help international companies gain access to the Swedish market and help domestic ones utilize it as a platform for expansion. The clients range from start-ups via small- and medium sized businesses to multinational enterprises – with tailor-made services catering to all of these segments.

Business Sweden has a holistic approach, offering both hands-on support, strategic and practical expertise and a unique capability to create access where access is hard to get, both in Sweden and through their 40+ offices across Europe, Americas, Middle East & Africa and Asia Pacific. Business Sweden’s expertise, presence and exclusive access to networks and stakeholders in both the public and private sectors in these markets gives them a supreme ability to help clients navigate regional business structures in order to expand their business and unlock growth.

In short, Business Sweden help companies turn opportunities into reality.
