Team Sweden

Team Sweden is an umbrella of authorities, agencies and companies who all assist Swedish companies in conducting international business. Team Sweden coordinates state support to promote Swedish exports abroad.

Team Sweden will promote Swedish exports and make it simple for Swedish companies to establish themselves in the export market. The export support includes advice, financing, marketing and the long-term development of Swedish industry.

SEK is a part of Team Sweden, which consists of 19 authorities and organizations. Team Sweden can take different forms and the relevant parties work together to coordinate the Swedish export support that is required.

Team Sweden’s members

The current members of Team Sweden are Business Sweden, the Swedish Institute, VisitSweden, Almi, Energimyndigheten, the Swedish Export Credits Guarantee Board, the Swedish National Board of Trade, Svensk Exportkredit, Swecare, Swedac, Tillväxtanalys, the Swedish Agency for Economical and Regional Growth, Swedish Customs, Vinnova, as well as the Swedish Ministry for Foreign Affairs, the Ministry of Enterprise and Innovation, the Swedish Ministry of the Environment, the Swedish Ministry of Culture, the Swedish Ministry of Health and Social Affairs, the Swedish Ministry of Finance and the Swedish Ministry of Education and Research. The composition of Team Sweden can change over time.

From the members of Team Sweden, SEK collaborates most of all with the Swedish Export Credits Guarantee Board (EKN), which guarantees payment risks for companies and banks, Business Sweden, which offers guidance and support, Almi, which primarily assists smaller companies with loans and guidance, and Swedfund, which is the Development Finance Institution of the Swedish state. It is common that, for example, EKN guarantees the financing that SEK provides to our exporters.

Almi offers loans and guidance to companies wishing to expand and develop. Almi also invests in venture capital for companies in their early stages who have large growth potential and scalable business concepts. Almi’s target group is small and medium-sized enterprises with up to 2,550 employees.

Business Sweden helps Swedish companies increase their global financing, boost their revenue and reduce risk. They also assist international companies in identifying new business opportunities in Sweden.

The Swedish Export Credits Guarantee Board (EKN) insures companies and banks against the risk of not receiving payment from export transactions. The EKN is a public authority with the assignment of promoting Swedish exports and the internationalization of Swedish companies.

Swedfund is the Development Finance Institution of the Swedish state, whose mission is to combat poverty by means of sustainable business. In collaboration with strategic partners, Swedfund participates in economic, environmental and socially sustainable investments that create improved living conditions for people that are living in poverty and oppression.
