An International Business Community Working For Sustainable Change

Our Story

In 2014, a group of Swedish entrepreneurs and individuals got this “crazy” idea to invite African business leaders to Sweden for a business event in January, the coldest month in Sweden, the Swedish Winter Challenge was born.

Soon after we recognized the need and demand for creating something bigger, reaching beyond this yearly business event. So, in 2015 the Sustainable World Corporation (SWCorp), a professional business network that allows for all our partners from Sweden and Africa alike to come together and collaborate, was founded. 

The year 2024 will be the 10th year of this annual event and we’ve decided to move it to Africa. Our first host country is South Africa, and of course January is at the hight of summer down south, so therefore the name change to Sustainabe World Challenge 2024.
