Person Details

Update

Maren Kate Donovan is the founder and CEO of Zirtual, a startup that connects busy people with dedicated virtual assistants (called “Zirtual” assistants). From Fortune 500 Execs and startup entrepreneurs to working parents, Maren is all about helping people supercharge their productivity and focus more on what they do best. As an entrepreneur who launched her first startup in college selling jewelry on eBay, Maren's also an entrepreneur trying to find a work/life balance through delegation. While bartending in college, at everything from fancy nightclubs to gritty biker bars, Maren launched her social marketing firm powered by offshore assistants and remote college students. She studied the patterns of highly successful business people and eventually found a model of entrepreneurship that lets her work on the things she chooses to. During this venture, Maren started a blog called “Escaping the 9 to 5,” and began putting together the pieces of a startup that would help others accomplish just that. The result was Zirtual. Now, anyone can kick stress and take names with the help of their own Zirtual Assistant.
