Meet Nina

Nina is the co-founder of Grouper.mk, a leading e-commerce company in Macedonia. She also initiated the creation of the First Macedonian Ecommerce Association which she nows heads as President. She is an eternal optimist and believes that happiness comes from finding the problems we enjoy solving.

Early Milestones and Business Development

She fell in love with e-commerce during while studying Economics at Saints Cyril and Methodius University in Skopje, North 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. From then, Nina never looked back and fully committed to her new venture.
I am committed to inspiring other women, to show them that if they embrace digital technologies, sky is the limit.
