Får jag föreställa


Explanation:
"Föreställa" can be substituted with "presentera", the former could seem archaic to some, while the latter really is more impersonal - either as a bit more high brow, or as more suitable for things rather than persons.

More formally it would be "låt mig få..." instead of "får jag..." for both verbs.

Tillåt mig att presentera


Explanation:
I think this works, I know that the correct English phrase should be "please allow me to introduce", but I still think this is the best alternative.
