Abstract [en]

This chapter deals with how Swedish born globals have contributed to economic growth and job creation in Sweden. The chapter starts with an overview of the Swedish economy and international trade. Thereafter follows a description of born globals in Sweden, including information on their sector, number of employees, and willingness and expectation to grow. This is illustrated by two examples of Swedish born globals that have experienced a continued international growth and have created jobs in Sweden. These examples are from the manufacturing and med-tech sectors, which are over-represented when it comes to born globals. After that, the creative sector is presented as a new growing sector in Sweden. The creative sector has been identified as one of the key sectors, with many born global firms, which can help Europe remain competitive in the changing global market driving economic growth and job creation (Collins et al., 2014). Subsequently, this chapter discusses how born globals in Sweden have influenced economic growth and job creation in different sectors and finishes with reflections on implications for policy and managers. © 2018 selection and editorial matter, Irene Mandl and Valentina Patrini.
