The Nation Marketplace story began in 2018 when Lori and Bernard Gagnon founded the Lithuanian Trade Council and Lithuanian Marketplace to help increase exports for the Republic of Lithuania. As the Lithuanian Marketplace became our online introduction into B2B commerce, Lori decided in 2021 to establish the Nation Marketplace for all nations. Today, our mission is simple - We Connect Buyers with Suppliers!
