Partnering opportunity

Manufacturing agreement: Swedish startup is looking for a manufacturer of snap buttons for an innovative nursing top


A Swedish startup, based south of Stockholm, has designed a unique nursing top/tank for women breastfeeding. The design is innovative and totally unique, thanks to the discreet strapless breastfeeding solution. The company is currently selling the nursing top through an online shop, and is now looking for suppliers to conclude a manufacturing agreement for 7 mm diameter snap buttons in colours off-white and black.

Technical Specification or Expertise Sought

7 mm diameter snap buttons; initially in black and off-white and an estimated volume of 2 000 – 3 000 units each.

Partner sought

Type of partner sought: Industry/Manufacturer Tasks to be performed by the partner sought: Manufacturing and delivery of 7 mm diameter snap buttons Initially in two colours; off-white and black, 2 000 - 3 000 units of each.


The Swedish startup consists of an entrepreneur with 19 years of experience in the marketing field and 11 years as a project manager and key account manager. To ensure a successful and professional career transfer, she has taken in courses in fashion, design, sewing and entrepreneurship. The nursing top is the company’s main product, and it is manufactured in two colours; black and off-white. However, the plan is to extend the offer with other types of clothing for nursing women in various colours. The unique and innovative strapless design makes breastfeeding easier and the top/tank can also be used after the breastfeeding period, since it doesn’t look like a typical nursing top. The company is now looking for a long-time manufacturing agreement with a supplier of 7 mm diameter snap buttons. An estimated initial volume is 2 000 – 3 000 units of each colour. It is also important that the manufacturer later will be able to scale up, in numbers as well as in colours, as the business grows.

Advantages and innovations

The strapless design facilitates the breastfeeding, and due to its discreet appearance, the garment can also be worn after the nursing period. Besides the innovative and unique product, the company possesses a strong marketing knowledge and an extended network, after 19 years in the marketing business.

How it works

  • Tell us about yourself
  • We’ll discuss with you
  • We put the right partners in touch

EEN help you find the right partner, rather than you going it alone.

Our role is to review and collate the most suitable submissions, and then send them to the client who posted the opportunity. We consult with you, and the client, to make the process professional and easy.

These are live opportunities. Your registration of interest on the site is just like a professional approach to a business at a networking event. To stand the best chance of success, make your submission really sing. Sell why the client who posted the opportunity should work with you. Excite them. Ask questions. Try and avoid copy and pasting words from elsewhere.

Once the client has chosen their partner, we'll introduce them over email and keep in touch with both parties to see how it's going. Sometimes things progress quickly. Sometimes because of changing priorities for either party, things progress slowly, but you never know - your next big business break could start right here.
