We had the good fortune of connecting with Kopano Moshoana and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Kopano, can you walk us through the thought-process of starting your business?
My entire thought process with creating Sorted Virtual Assistance was to take advantage of the existing gap locally. There arent many VA companies here in South Africa and I saw the progress people made having such a business internationally. Plus, many start-ups and small businesses need such value in South Africa. So I thought why not create a business model around this and really provide a positive impact for Startups and SME’s.
Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
Sorted Virtual Assistance is a hub where Startups and Small Businesses can attain services from our pool of qualified VA’s in order to assist them to reduce workload and improve efficiency in their developing legacies at a fraction of the cost. This is a defining business model that we believe will flourish very well in our home country of South Africa, as we know they would find it extremely valuable and allows us to stretch beyond home ground because of its business model of remote working. Think of it as a personal assistant through a click of a button. That means fast, efficient, task-orientated, time-sensitive and finally COST EFFECTIVE.
We currently pride ourselves in being a 100% millennial female-owned company in SA. It hasn’t been the easiest task as this is a pandemic baby we started the business in December of 2019 and have been building our online brand ever since. The biggest take-away with our story is even if you’re a young mom (we’re both young mothers) starting out, IT is possible and you can achieve anything you set your mind to. JUST START.
Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
Our fave spots in Jozi would be Melrose, Sandton, and Waterfall.
These spots ooze Lifestyle, opulence and it encourages movement, change, and possibilities. Everytime we’re in these spots we feel inspired and motivated to create a life that we DESERVE.
Melrose and Sandton have so many lunch and dinner spots that are super classy and aesthetically stunning. A cocktail and lovely meal will be worth every rand!
Waterfall reiterates the same vibe too.
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
A big shout-out to my Co-founder/ partner – I couldn’t have made this business such a success with her valuable input and guidance. I am incredibly thankful to her and like they say 2 heads are better than one indeed!
