Become our partner

We, SBS systems for business solutions, are a private enterprise, specialized in consulting and international project management. We apply cross-cultural thinking and custom-made solutions that overcome intercultural borders to find the right contacts for our clients in the most emerging and attractive markets. Our headquarters are based in Rome, Italy and our German office in Berlin, with multilingual personnel (project managers as well as marketing collaborators).

As can be seen from our list of projects of the last years, we work worldwide and cross-sectorial. Since 2006 we have been realizing around 60 projects on behalf of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy as well as the Federal Ministry of Food and Agriculture, in countries such as Italy, China, Colombia, USA, Nigeria, Morocco, Bolivia, Korea, South Africa, Zimbabwe, and many more, ranging from sectors of Transport/Smart Mobility, Automotive to Machinery sector to Health Care, ICT or Food.

At the same time we consult and assist Italian companies entering foreign, and especially the German-speaking, markets, on behalf of Confindustria Bergamo, the General Confederation of Italian Industry.

For our line of work finding the best partner in the target country is essential. Mostly we work together with consulting companies specialized on market entry like ourselves, which support us in various tasks and phases of the projects. We have gained a lot of experience already, but add new countries and sectors almost every year to our port-folio, thus facing new challenges and adventures. Hence, we are frequently looking for like-minded partners all over the world for a potential cooperation in the future.

  • Venues, technology, catering and transportation
  • Expert speakers for events about specific sectors/countries
