“Everything started when I was 15 years old. Along with my friends, I created a recycling company at a time when Kosovo had just emerged from 1998-1999 war and the country was destroyed. So we created this company to help people in need to gain money by selling us used cans. This was the first startup created by me. A few months after we had opened it, we sold this startup to another entrepreneur, which nowadays has transformed it into a lucrative business.”
