The mission of Inclusive Business Sweden is to engage and support organisations in sustainable, innovative and inclusive business models. In working with business, government, NGOs, academia and other stakeholders, Inclusive Business Sweden develops inclusive business models, connects organisations to facilitate collaboration and supports learning by building and sharing knowledge.

We are based in Göteborg, and serve as the national centre for the advancement of inclusive business initiatives with the BoP. To this end, we manage and are involved in a number of projects, as well as provide expertise across a range of sectors.

We believe that there is tremendous potential in working together to meet the basic needs of the world’s poor through innovation and enterprise. Our vision is to have industry collaborating cross-sectionally with organisations to meet the developmental needs of the BoP while themselves benefiting from the involvement in these low-income markets.
