TimelyPA is a UK based virtual assistant company that provides virtual assistant support to tech startups. Starting up a new business can feel overwhelming and daunting, handing a lot of the work over to a team specializing in startups can make a big difference to the speed and growth of the new company.
The company has been in operation since 2013. All of their staff are based in the UK, and they aim to provide the highest quality native English speaking staff at a competitive price.
The company is run by Patrick Collins who is the founder. The team has their own page on the TimelyPA website outlining their roles, which is a nice touch. There is Edi, co-founder and social media manager. Aura, data research specialist. Chris, social media and graphic design, and Josh, SEO and blog writing.
When I spoke with TimelyPA they explained that they “Work only with tech startups, and so have great experience in the startup environment in what processes, skills and software are the best to apply to the startup that we are working with.” They are not a general virtual assistant company, but specializing in startups allows them to channel their skillset into what they do best – helping startups grow.
Starting up a new business can be incredibly time consuming. Outsourcing a lot of the tasks in the early days of a business can free up your time to work on being creative and concentrating on the areas of the business you enjoy more.
