About Us

Mission and Vision

“Enabling sustainable trade and investment”
“Capacitating more women in international business”
“Promoting trade not aid by strengthening the private sector in developing countries”

Make Trade, former Chamber Trade Sweden, is an international platform and non-profit organisation founded in 2011 by the chambers of commerce in Sweden to enable business to expand internationally and make better use of both local and global business networks.

We are passionate about sustainable trade and investment. Our Sweden on the Go platform provides business with the expertise needed to expand internationally with services which are of use to both Swedish companies, and international companies wishing to invest in Sweden. 

We believe in promoting trade not aid in developing countries. This is the only way forward if we are to succeed in creating more inclusive and sustainable growth globally. 

Successful collaboration, across a wide range of sectors and geographies with local business organisations and companies, has allowed Make Trade to build valuable experience and networks. We work hard to inspire more women to expand their businesses internationally and some of our most successful partnerships are with local women business networks and women entrepreneurs. Agenda 2030 is a uniting roadmap for all to follow, and women-run businesses are paving the way to a more broad-based, sustainable growth. 

As a non-profit, we bring organisations and individuals together through innovative projects that engage through co-creation. This catalyses energy and long-term engagement. Our bottom line is that we want to make a difference, both to your company and you as an individual.
