Who we are
Switzerland Global Enterprise was founded as a non-profit association in Lausanne in 1927. It informs, advises and guides SMEs from Switzerland and Liechtenstein in their international business ventures. It links companies, experts and private and public organisations around the world, thus facilitating efficient promotion of foreign trade. Apart from export promotion, Switzerland Global Enterprise has also been responsible for promoting Switzerland as a business location abroad since the beginning of 2008, as well as for promoting imports from selected developing and transition countries. In addition, Switzerland Global Enterprise runs 19 Swiss Business Hubs abroad, most of which are based in Swiss embassies. These offices provide guidance to Swiss exporters on four continents and promote Switzerland as a business location abroad.
