Think Albania is an independent non-profit organization that provides on-the-ground support to foreign manufacturers who are looking to bring their expertise and gain access to Albania’s many untapped resources such as its young, highly motivated workforce. Our team offers various complementary services to interested manufacturers, including but not limited to: 

  • Access to reliable data on the business climate and labor markets in Albania
  • Support during the site selection process, including site visits
  • Connections to local governmental and non-governmental institutions (e.g., municipalities, government agencies, NGOs, private consulting and law firms)
  • Assistance in talent acquisition and recruitment


Think Albania is led by Nicholas (Nick) Gjokaj, a US-born entrepreneur. Nick was motivated to start Think Albania after visiting the country for the first time in 15 years in 2019 and seeing first-hand all the untapped potential in the people.

Prior to founding Think Albania, Nick was a member of the founding team at a venture-backed start-up in Silicon Valley. He oversaw the growth of the business from three ambitious teammates in a bedroom to nearly 100 team members worldwide. Before diving into the start-up world, Nick advised executives at Fortune 500 companies with the global management consulting firm McKinsey & Company.

Nick holds an MBA from Duke University, a BA from Arizona State University, and previously served two years with the US Peace Corps in Ecuador.
