Meet Nina
Meet Nina
Nina is an eternal optimist and believes happiness comes finding the problems we enjoy dealing with and solving them.
Early milestones
She fell in love with e-commerce during while studying Economics at Saints Cyril and Methodius University in Skopje, Macedonia. Just before graduating in 2010, Nina won the most innovative business plan competition and got a small funding grant to launch what would become Grouper.mk, the first deal platform in North Macedonia at a time when e-commerce was just beginning to develop in the country. Nina never looked back and fully committed to her new venture, transformed the e-commerce industry in Macedonia and became known as the e-commerce game-changer.
Growing recognition
Her impact and hard work gradually became more and more be recognized in North Macedonia and abroad. She started speaking at events (over 300 domestically and internationally), mentoring young future entrepreneurs and working on various projects. In 2016, the German startup magazine, The Hundert recognized her as one of the “100 Female Founders Europe!” and in 2018, Forbes named her “Forbes 30 Under 30”. Her thirst for change and impact led her to lead the Macedonian E-commerce Association and to sit on the Boards of the Economic Chamber of Macedonia and the European E-commerce Association.
The way forward
In August 2019, a few months after being selected as eTrade for Women Advocate, Nina was appointed as minister of Finance in North Macedonia, making history as the first woman to rise to that position in the country.
