Cluster Strategy
Mission/Objectives: 

A design, furniture and interior decorating cluster in Sweden, with the goal of reaching the rest of the world

 

Interior Cluster Sweden is a corporation with the task of linking local and regional stakeholders in the design, furniture and interior decorating industry. Our goal is to generate sustainable growth, increased profitability and employment for our members. Together we want to:

 

• Be a meeting place and a forum

• Create interest for the industry in Sweden and abroad.

• Disseminate knowledge about Swedish design and production for increased competitiveness

 

We welcome stakeholders in the industry as well as academies to become members. The ambition is to support members with well-known issues such as digitization, globalization, circular economy, skills development and innovation, but the question is what comes next, what are the macro trends and what is needed to achieve growth and increased profitability for the industry.

Swedish Agency for Economic and Regional Growth

Swedish Agency for Economic and Regional Growth

Tillväxtverket, The Swedish Agency for Economic and Regional Growth, is a government agency under the Ministry of Enterprise and Innovation.

We promote economic growth in Sweden by increasing the competitiveness of companies. We work to strengthen the competitiveness by facilitating entrepreneurship and creating attractive environments for companies in the regions.

Our vision is more companies in Sweden that want to grow and have the capabilities and courage to do so. Knowledge, networks and funding are our main tools to achieve it.

Some efforts are targeted directly to businesses or aspiring entrepreneurs. Other initiatives are aimed at developing the general terms and conditions that affect entrepreneurship. Based on our knowledge of the needs of companies and of Swedish regions, we build networks to facilitate cooperation and finance efforts to boost economic growth.

Our biggest single task is helping to ensure that EU funds are invested in projects that promote regional growth and employment
