We have a 3 year plan for your business growth. Want to know what it is?

Read About our 3 Year Growth Strategy

You know the challenges of building your business one customer at a time. Testing new marketing strategies, buying ads, building campaigns, exhibiting at events and cold calling all take time and money that often means opportunities are lost. Opportunities that can transform your business value.

Faster, smarter and far easier is an acquisition, finding a business that complements yours while giving you the opportunity to fast track your business growth.

Talk to Nudge today about building your business through affordable acquisition
Teaming up with Nudge means we work with you on a strategy to buy an already established, profitable and successful business that has a customer base ready to instantly ‘bolt-on’ to your company. – When you add a bolt on acquisition to your existing company you immediately get to cross-sell your existing services and products to your new customers AND to sell your new company services to your existing client base. Immediate, tangible value. Also, economies of scale increase the value of both your businesses and that’s important when you come to sell your business in the future.

Finding the right business can be a challenge, especially when you’re busy with the day to day running of your company. That’s where we come in — At Nudge, we work with you to identify a suitable takeover that will add value and further growth opportunity to your company.

We’ll research options, connect with business owners on your behalf, ask the right questions and probe the answers we get back. We want to work with you, building your portfolio for the long term,so you can be sure we’ll dig deep, examine the business, analyse the numbers conduct extensive due diligence and negotiate with owner-operators, business brokers, investor groups and larger corporations looking to sell businesses that are not core to their business goals.

Our aim is a win/win for you and the seller.

Founder of Nudge M&A
Jamie Sylvian has been in the creative sector for over 25 years.

The Deal Team


Strategy & Negotiations


Under that swish looking cap is me, Jamie Sylvian. For 25+ Years I have worked in the marketing and comms world, helping businesses in the UK, Europe, USA and Asia launch and develop sales and marketing strategies. My role has been to dream up, test, adjust and roll out new strategies. Some failed of course, but enough succeeded in developing new businesses, new product lines and new services for me to make a name as a ‘go to’ strategist and communications writer for companies like Haymarket publishers, Civil Service Magazine, PR Week, Casey Research, and Campaign as well as hundreds of SME’s in the UK, Europe, Asia and the USA. A 25+ year journey of ideas and strategies.

In 1998 I was the joint-founder of Sira Utilities the company that became Uswitch.com, sold for £200,000,000 in 2006. After that I spent 19 years as a consultant and growth strategist, living in Hong Kong, Bangkok, Chiang Mai and in Europe, London, Spain and Sofia, writing (my passion) sales and marketing campaigns for my own agency, travelling, investing passively and enjoying life’s great adventure.

As a Creative Director at my agency (www.nudge.agency) I have worked for some of the world’s largest publishers and gaming companies and I write sales copy for Campaign Magazine which is the iconic trade publication for the creative industry (i.e over 70,000 of my competitors read my work every time I write a campaign) and my work also relaunched Civil Service World Magazine in London 2016. I have written copy and marketing campaigns producing over 300 Million Dollars worth of product sales.

In the M&A space, I have merged my passion for the creative process with a dedication and mission to help build creative portfolios for Nudge clients. I have put together a team to get the job done. (more here)

Hi, I’m Nicola Morgan. I am the finance strategist here at Nudge, otherwise known as the numbers ninja. As a (UK trained) accountant, I’ve been in finance for over 10 years. At Nudge I take care of deal analysis and funding strategy. From my base in the amazing Philippines, I work with accountants and brokers to ascertain values and then connect with funders to create funding structures for business acquisition.
In my spare time, I am an avid traveller, so much so that I spend half the year working out of Asia. I am also a keen snowboarder when I can get to our mountain office in Bulgaria every winter. Oh and I like long walks on sandy beaches, but then who doesn’t?… You can connect with me through our London office by phone, through a conference call and of course, by email.

Deal Flow Manager


Hey, I’m Jennie Southern. My official title is Deal Flow Manager, but around here they call me The Queen of Everything! – Working out of our ‘Office in the Mountains’ in the All Seasons Mountain Resort of Bansko, Bulgaria, I keep the wheels rolling at Nudge, making sure deals our team are working on are going through, which means liaising constantly with company owners, business sellers, brokers, financiers, lawyers and accountants. I’m also responsible for managing the deal flow for Nudge partners and taking care of our team, currently spread across four countries. I’m based in our Bulgaria office but you can connect with me using the London number. When I’m not at work, I’m a keen cook and crochet demon. When I’m feeling a bit more energetic, you’ll find me up in the mountains, less than 5 minutes from our office (it’s an awesome view from my desk!) as I’m a pretty good road cyclist (Summer) and skier in the winter. Oh and most importantly, I cook a mean shepherd’s pie.
