About Virtalent

Virtalent was founded in the heart of Birmingham’s “Silicon Canal” in early 2014. Since then the team have been featured in the national press, won several awards and gone from strength to strength!

Both Founders are experienced entrepreneurs with a combined background in administration, online marketing, start-up consulting and business coaching. Both have started several business ventures in the past and are supported by a Board of Advisors with a wide range of expertise.
