We build knowledge

The Karl-Adam Bonnier Foundation initiates research and multidisciplinary projects that lead to the development and sharing of new knowledge in business administration and corporate law.

We identify knowledge gaps, fund research, and share new knowledge that contributes to the development of business in Sweden. Over the past years we have contributed to building knowledge in intrapreneurship, born globals, and the market changes in corporate bonds – to mention a few areas.

We promote collaboration

We connect decision-makers, experts and thought leaders from academia, politics, private and public stakeholders to debate issues and create synergies.

We create an independent and non-partisan arena for constructive dialogue. Our forums arrange salon debates and roundtable discussions where perspectives are broadened, relationships are built, and new ideas take shape. By promoting collaboration, we create the conditions for mobilization and development.

We influence policy

We accelerate the development of policy for a competitive business climate by promoting knowledge and collaboration.

The Karl-Adam Bonnier Foundation creates conditions for different stakeholders to meet, debate and reach consensus. By sharing new knowledge and providing an independent arena for dialogue, we contribute to the development of policy proposals and accelerate improvements.
