The IWS is a network for SMEs with an ethos of acting globally as a pioneering and future-oriented initiator for business and political spheres.

The Internationaler Wirtschafstsenat e.V. (IWS) sees itself as a globally active network of small-and-medium-sized businesses (SMEs) that acts as a trend-setting, future-oriented and cross-party initiator for business, politics and science. Since the foundation of the IWS in 2013, the NGO has been growing steadily and at a healthy rate. At the centre of all IWS activities is the shared global responsibility of and for people, companies and political course-setting. IWS is convinced: globalization does not take place on paper, but flourishes and grows through the living encounter of markets and people across political, geographical and cultural borders.

For this reason, the IWS is writing a requirements specification for the future

Under this premise, more and more top-class personalities - who are committed to the canon of values of the "honorable businessman" - are joining the ranks of the IWS. The International Business Senate e.V. applies traditional values to current and future- oriented topics. The result is a house of stable values that harbours both reliability and the ability to adapt.
