    Virtual Gurus, Alberta, Canada, matches remote talent with organizations and provides income opportunities for underrepresented people. It closed an $8.4m Series B and non-dilutive round of funding.

    Anchored by lead investor, the TELUS Pollinator Fund for Good, and supported by other key investors including Raven Indigenous Capital Partners, The51, The Houssian Foundation and Accelerate Fund, Virtual Gurus’ cumulative funding since February 2020 now totals $10.4m.

    The funding raised in the Series A will see the team introduce machine learning into high return on investment areas of the business while continuing to expand its technology platform, and accelerate the expansion into the United States, which currently accounts for 38 per cent of the company’s revenue.

    Virtual Gurus, founded by Bobbie Racette as CEO and founder, is a talent market that uses proprietary technology to match companies with highly-skilled virtual assistants from Canada and the USA. The company offers meaningful earning opportunities for those looking to get out of the 9-to-5 workweek. It also champions BIPOC persons, LGBTQ2S+ individuals, single and stay at-home parents, as well as people with alternative abilities. Companies such as OutTV, Borrowell and 3Strands Global Foundation have realized time and cost savings, gained productivity and supported their Environmental, Social & Governance (ESG) goals by accessing the company’s monthly subscription service and leveraging the administrative support they provide.

    Virtual Gurus offers quality work opportunities and income. They also support work readiness through the Virtual Gurus Academy. Online learning is a great way to learn new skills and stay current with technology in order to help you as a virtual assistant.
