About the Foundation

Swedish companies early gained a pole position on the international market through a strong culture of innovation and exceptional conditions for growth. Our global and innovative companies formed the foundation for Sweden’s economic and social well-being. As a small export-oriented nation, our future prosperity is determined by the global competitiveness of our business community. It is therefore essential to create a favorable climate for continuous development of business in Sweden. This is the focus of the Karl-Adam Bonnier Foundation.
