int’Link is new Swedish procurement program initiated by IFS and AmCham members IBM, Pfizer, SEB, ICA, Hammarskiöld & Co and UPS. It promotes integrating immigrant-owned businesses into the supply chains of established companies and government agencies, and is a successful model in other countries.
For decades American and UK companies and government agencies have been inviting small women- and minority-owned companies into their supply chains. Three years ago, IFS-Internationella Företagarföreningen i Sverige, AmCham and the US Embassy began exploring how such a model might work in Sweden. The result is int’Link, which has just completed its pilot phase and is now being launched throughout Sweden. Come learn how your company or agency might contribute to job creation and integration through your procurement processes.
