Global agreement and all policies for B2BALTIC community organization, B2BALTIC television, all our networks and locations worldwide. Valid and immediately applicable for business or private visitors, community watchers, and all members, who stay on our sites (locations and internet)
INTRODUCTION AND FIRST PRINCIPLES.
B2BALTIC, Nordic-Baltic and worldwide community is made for you, for people, smart professionals and entrepreneurs. You can become a supplier, provider, editor, marketer, developer in the community, not just a simple member or resource user. You could join the community council. The community is apolitical, open, collaborative, oriented to business and professional development with social attitude and interest for improvement of the common society. The community is for profit and non-profit, it deals with passion of doing things and sharing them with others. The others can be members, watchers or later your customers, or your suppliers. The community is focused on Nordic and Baltic countries, made-in-Nordic, but open to foreigners and international trade. B2BALTIC is a brand, mark, trendy symbol and signature, you could be authorized to use or manage too. B2BALTIC model is unconventional, not standard, and represents a new way to drive B2B and think community. The policies and rules are made clear for your attention: some of them might look like strict but made so for the good of the community, for the growth, for your good as well, as you are part of all this. If you are a frequent watcher, free network member of groups, but not yet member, it is worth for you to become effective member (start with basic-membership is free of charge) because by using/visiting our locations in the world or internet platforms, as you are doing right now, anyway you have accepted all the policies and conditions of the community, even if you haven´t read them. B2BALTIC does not discriminate you because of your color or religious: you can go “up” in the community if you are smart or demonstrate passion in doing your stuff, and respect for the work of the other members. We are members too, like you now. B2BALTIC is your community, the people, not a single legal entity. When you buy a service or product in B2BALTIC, you buy from another business like you. The community can buy from you too. You shall be clear with what you can offer and what you can buy, to achieve your deals. B2BALTIC is made for business in motion. If you are static and passive, B2BALTIC is not the right place for you.
