Business Sweden – the Swedish Trade and Invest Council

Business Sweden is a global consultancy organisation with approximately 500 colleagues working in 46 countries. We all share the same passion – creating maximum value for Sweden. Business Sweden’s purpose is to help every Swedish company to reach their full international potential. We also strive to attract foreign direct investments to Sweden. Through our consultancy services we offer our customers strategic advice and hands-on support in their international growth and establishment.

Business Sweden is not a standard consultancy – together we help Sweden grow. Whether joining us in Bangalore, Dubai or Paris, your focus will be to support our clients’ international growth every step of the way. At Business Sweden you will truly make a difference.

Business Sweden is owned by the Swedish Government and the industry, 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.

Culture and values
A moral compass is that gut feeling which guides people to distinguish right from wrong and defines how they should behave towards other people. At Business Sweden we believe that our people have that moral compass. We also believe that a strong organisational culture is founded upon values. And when values feel intuitive and obvious we feel they are at their best. To guide us right according to Business Sweden’s values we have three words that represent how we act and navigate; Responsibility, Collaboration and Impact.
