How Start-ups can Utilize a Virtual Executive Assistant

In this article, we’ll take a closer look at how virtual assistants can become vital team members, and move the needle for startups in tangible, actionable ways.  There are so many aspects to running a startup business where a skilled, experienced Virtual Executive Assistant can offer much-needed services. 

  1. Detox your inbox
  2. Scheduling
  3. Lead generation
  4. Streamlining processes
  5. Head-hunting and talent scouting
  6. Customer service
  7. Communications
  8. Assisting with your Crowdfunding
  9. Content writing
  10. Social Media Management
  11. Data entry & File Storage Management
  12. Research
  13. Basic bookkeeping
  14. Logistics


Over time, investing in a competent Virtual Assistant may prove to be the most cost-effective and efficient solution that a startup business can implement to streamline the business operations.

The second most important aspect regarding the acquisition of a Virtual Assistant for a startup business is implementing a clear prioritization structure on the most urgent tasks and responsibilities that have to be delegated, and then gradually upskilling these tasks as the VA becomes more adept at the tasks.

With that in mind, it’s important not to leave the task of finding the right virtual executive assistant(s) for you and your team up to chance. The best way to ensure that you’re getting an executive assistant match made in startup heaven is to partner with a service like SAGE Executive Assistants that understands startups and the unique challenges that they face. SAGE   matches you with a virtual executive assistant that matches your company’s needs and goals, and will get you to the point where you’re saying, as so many entrepreneurs do when you ask them about their virtual assistants, “I don’t know how we did it without our VA.”
