The Face of Innovative Growth
As the founder of Chang Thai Café and Chaiwan Enterprise, LLC, Littleton entrepreneur Emshika Alberini has multiple passions. After relocating to the US and earning a master’s degree in organizational management, she worked in the corporate world before moving to Littleton in 2008 to open her award-winning restaurant. A number of honors followed, including the presentation by then-governor Maggie Hassan of the Most Intriguing Woman Business Leader award at the Business NH Magazine Ultimate Biz Bash 2016, and inclusion in a recent Cherry Bombe 100, which identifies influential women in food. In addition to overseeing the restaurant, Emshika founded real estate holdings company Chaiwan Enterprise. Not done yet, Emshika is launching a food and beverage line, including her new nitro-infused, no-sugar-added Thai tea, which was named one of the “World’s 50 Most Delicious Drinks” by CNN. She also works with start-up companies as both an advisor and investor. She continues to enroll in professional development courses, receiving a certificate in developing and managing a successful technology strategy from MIT’s Sloan School of Management, and is working toward a certificate in sustainable business strategy from Harvard Business Extension School.
