Internationalization of Swiss SMEs

Foreign trade is vitally important for Switzerland. Our domestic sales opportunities and resources are limited. The expertise and quality of Swiss companies are highly valued across the world, as also shown by the current “Swiss International Entrepreneurship Survey” (SIES) conducted in 2016.

Current study

The 2016 survey shows how and where Swiss companies are successful. It also sheds light on the various challenges for SMEs in comparison to bigger companies and so-called born globals, which are internationally active from the time they are founded. Small companies in particular sometimes have more potential in an international market than a domestic market. Here you will find some useful and inspiring research on how companies can exploit this potential more effectively.
