About Us
The Inter Business Initiative is a knowledge lab, an ongoing collision of thought – developing framework towards holistic value creation where business can act as change agents in a world where sustainability, responsibility, agency are business as usual.

We are a non-profit, founded by Johanna Hallin and engaging a tribe of individuals and businesses. Together we have identified the need for independent and iterative examinations of how we make the shift, what it means and what it entails.

We arrange think tanks, discussion, seminars. We publish insights and articles, sprung from discussions and dialogue. We produce research papers, reports and books. All our activities aim at challenging and strengthening Inter Business, which provides framework for business strategy to shift perspective.


Our main operative team is located in Stockholm and Umeå, consisting of experts in their field.
