Samuel Wilson and Eleanor Bekalo launched Virtalent, based in Birmingham city centre, in July 2014 and, apart from being an immediate hit with the city business community, already have a number of awards and nominations under their belt.
This year they won Aston University’s nomination for the Santander Entrepreneurship Award 2015 and took home the NatWest and RBS Pitch Event prize at the launch of the Birmingham NatWest and Entrepreneurial Spark business accelerator in February, of which they are now a part of.
There were also finalists in the Baldwins Accountants Entrepreneurs Awards competition 2014 and one of the few UK Finalists in the Global Entrepreneur Awards 2014.
Now they’re all fired up for a busy summer which will see them looking to raise the next round of funding for their SEIS-registered company from the Birmingham investment community, employing more local staff and creating more jobs.
“It feels great to be saving local businesses money and helping them tackle their to-do lists”, says Samuel.
