The LiST / B2BLiST builds on that we all are sincere, active, participative, investing our time and effort, and focus on accruing business all of us. The B2BLiST is a forum for business either working in- and for the local market, cross-border, Pan Baltic and other. Sometimes it is I, the project manager, other times it is a member/other who comes with business and ideas. The association operates regardless of season via meetings larger and smaller, day time and evenings, both topical as well as A-topical. To present, and put forward the businesses under our umbrella, to create opportunity, to connect with business elsewhere to see, us, we, the country grow in business. Put in simple words: ‘’Making Business Happen’’.
The membership levels reflect commitment, with more benefits and services added as we go. We are not political, just business! For tax- and practical reasons, the business association runs under PRIME Staffing & Consulting SIA.
As a project manager I need know your goals and time line to achieve, and also receive updates of anything changing. I will put this forward when I speak to- and invite speakers, participants, sponsors as I meet many people with various agendas, and some things take longer, others shorter time to materialize. It’s MATCH-Making! Just the word ‘more clients’ is not the answer, we need define more exactly, and open up! For that reason we shall sit down and discuss your interests and seal an individual contract between ourselves.
The B2BliST started back in 2007/2008 originally as a way to contravene the effects of the then crisis, as I noted no one knew what to do. Especially, among my foreign clients who were on foreign soil. It started with small Friday lunch meetings, (and a newsletter), to put people together, also job seekers, in a relaxed friendly atmosphere. It worked well, and we even placed
people despite the sad situation! I selflessly, to show good example but also to create a productive base, most of my clients, many others, they paid the membership to maintain, but also shared something from their success! We also created a job seeker membership- and -system, to promote promising individuals on a ‘’win-win’’-basis. The result grew as we went, this was totally new to Latvia and the membership, and so the variety of events, increased, topping off at 21(!) in a year. This time we aim at 8-10+ events, to start with. We made a pause in 2013 as times had changed, and the worst was over. I however have seen too little change, and think that so much more need be done, and can be done – but we need do this ourselves, help one-another, not wait for the silver platter to be offered or the EU to bail us out – no one is coming for us unless we ourselves put in the work!
The advent and impact of the Corona virus showed how vulnerable we are, the risk we run out of steam, certainly of income, also due to super imposed, governmental unfair decisions brought upon us! Also, losing the clients we have spent months and years to build, seeing them vanish before our eyes, just like plans for our entities, our hopes for good careers and a decent way-of-life. Instead we are being challenged! For this reason, more than ever we business owners, decision-takers and managers need come together and step it up! Thus, joining The LiST to meet others like minded, should be your choice!
WELCOME to the B2BLiST /The LiST!

OUR SUPPORTERS SAY
DENTAL ESTETIKA (2011)
“It’s great that Henrik brings together active, highly motivated business people. These meetings are purposeful and Henrik has an amazing capability to connect people who are mutually interesting to each other. I personally have expanded my partner network and thereby improved the quality of my business, for which I am grateful.”
Entrepreneur in Riga (2015)
”I can highly recommend any person, company representative, job seeker etc., to attend The B2BLiST. Here you can meet new, or already developed contacts, enjoy good food and tasty wine, and develop your network in a relaxed atmosphere. -Get some fresh air and have a small break from ordinary work, and create new ideas! It takes time to build a network! Many of us, I believe, including I, also need to learn how to make steps finding new possible customers or service providers, and to maintain this network. You can gain from it in many ways and other participants can also benefit from your participation – a win-win situation”.
Commodities Trader (2020)
Thank you very much for inviting me to the relaunching of The LiST! The TASTE LiST of February 21 was an outstandingly, well-organised event with an exceptionally well-matched group of people. It was also an event put together with great skill and overseen from start to finish with the same great skill. Very few are able to organise and run such an event, so well, you are one of the few who can! It was a privilege to attend that event and I am very grateful indeed to you for inviting me.
Interior Designer & Business Developer (http://www.floriance.eu/design-floriance/), 2020
“I have known Henrik almost from when I came to Latvia in 2006. We have often been on business delegations in regional corporate visits with the Finnish ambassador to gain new ideas and broaden our networks, and also at numerous business events with many nationalities. Henrik, also creates very good, and warm-hearted B2B-Dinner meetings that I do recommend! His long experience of business-life and networking in Latvia is without rival. Definitely, turn to Henrik if you need the services he can offer”.
2020 Faced with the Corona virus hysteria, we just managed to run two events, early in the year.
On January 31, a Friday early evening, upon advise we ran an ‘’Italian flavoured evening on Italian food stuffs, Wine and Italy’’ . Invited were business managers, several with a personal experience of Italy, others doing business with~. The purpose for the event was to learn, get acquainted, see opportunities and be able to interact with those that could know! – So, for business in general, in a convivial atmosphere, end-of-week! Local shop-owner for iTiT, Gianluigi Rondano (20+ years in Riga), stood our host, but having had only 9 days to put it together, we felt we were not done and a later date all could agree on was set for Feb 21. Both events filled up, 20 people present – business owners exclusively – and as a result we enjoyed great Italian delicacies, wine and meeting new people.
The sectors represented were Logistics, Construction, Office services, Hospitality, Trading, Real Estate Management, Consulting, Energy, Automation, Branding, Marketing, Project management, Educational Training, and Fashion, just to mention but some! 🙂 From at least half-a-dozen countries…
-Needless to say, our excellent host, Gianluigi benefitted, and all of us left with smiles – as it should be! A posteriori! /HenrikM
P.s. Gianluigi’s wines (very elegant and tasty, sourced by himself, in Italy) are unique, and his Grappa, in value for money – exceptional! :). This latter, was affirmed by one of our participants!
-At the address on Kr. Valdemara 137-K1, Riga, Gianluigi’s opening hours were generous, six-days-a-week. I am writing ‘’were’’ as since due to lock-downs, Gianluigi lost his business as people were not allowed to meet.
-Gianluigi who speaks Latvian, Russian, Italian and English is now considering what to do next, but first along vacation as he literally has had none since he started! And GOOD News – as of early 2023 – Gianluigi has become a citizen of Latvia! Probably the first Italian to become such!
-B2BLiST CONGRATULATES him on this huge personal feat & SUCCESS!
