Think Albania is an independent, non-political, non-profit organization that provides on-the-ground support to foreign manufacturers looking to gain access to Albania’s young, highly-motivated workforce. The team offers a number of complimentary services to interested manufacturers, including:

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


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.
