GP Virtual is a service-based business focused on aiding busy people with time and stress management through virtual assistance. The services that are offered currently include research, transcription, proofreading/editing, and writing services. However, the company strives to offer other services into the future as well. The company’s main focus is to prioritize the mental health of clients, by targeting their personal needs and providing quality services that are reliable. The company’s CEO, Glenvelis Perez, discovered a passion for helping others when she was young. Specifically, she has always strived to help her parents, despite the language barrier between Spanish and English that made it difficult for them to communicate with others. She hopes to provide “support with a smile” to help others who may need services through GP Virtual in a similar way, especially with the additional strain of the COVID-19 pandemic. Through the Young Entrepreneurs Academy (YEA!) for the 2021-2022 school year, she was able to plan out her dream of owning a business, and she now hopes to fulfill it! She recently participated in the Investor Panel on March 30, 2022 through the program, and won a one-year membership to the Greater Utica Chamber of Commerce. She is extremely grateful for all of the support and opportunities that she has received, and can’t wait to get started!
