Welcome to the Swiss-British Business Exchange! This is the online place for Swiss companies that want to grow in the UK, and UK companies that want to grow in Switzerland.
Our Story

Swiss-British Business Exchange started as a small but passionate project in January 2014 by Swiss and UK based founding members and entrepreneurs Sidela Leon and Christoph Burgdorfer to provide a diversified directory of Swiss UK based businesses and entrepreneurs for people seeking Swiss quality services and products.

The idea grew into building a community around the businesses helping each other grow, succeed and learn from each other.

We also support the biggest Facebook Group of Swiss people in the UK.

Soon we started to have big brands and even had appearances in Swiss national TV. This is why we decided to open also for UK businesses who want to grow in Switzerland.

We are currently growing our team and adding to the services we can offer Swiss and UK businesses. Melina Gisler joined us in January 2024. Melina is a dual British-Swiss citizen based in London with an extensive background in commercial and product management roles for both innovative start-ups and larger companies, such as Swisscom and WPP. She will support Swiss and British companies in achieving their growth and expansion goals with on-the-ground services and connections.
