About Us

As an official entity of the Embassy of Switzerland, the Swiss Business Hub Brazil (SBH) is responsible for implementing Swiss export strategies in Brazil and for promoting Switzerland as a business location.  With close relationships to Swiss business and academic stakeholders, the SBH can draw on selected networks in both Switzerland and Brazil. A client-centred attitude and the flexibility to offer bespoke services uniquely position the SBH to meet and support a company’s business requirements.

The SBH assists small and medium-sized enterprises from Switzerland and Liechtenstein in expanding their market presence in Brazil. The SBH provides localized support, market information, and consulting and networking services to Swiss companies venturing into the Brazilian market and to Brazilian companies searching for a Swiss partner. An experienced team of trade advisors stands ready to support inquiries of all kind and serves as a first-hand local contact for companies – both new and experienced – in the Brazilian market.

As the São Paulo based representative of the official international trade and investment promotion agency Switzerland Global Enterprise (S-GE), the SBH also actively promotes Switzerland as a highly attractive business and investment location for Brazilian companies looking for growth in Switzerland, Europe and the world.
