“We’re Partnering with Business Brokers Nationwide to Help us Find the Best Business Acquisition Opportunities for Our Clients”

Hey, we’re Nudge, a Buy-Side M&A Company.

We help business owners grow through acquisition. We work closely with our clients, offering strategic advice, financial guidance and operational perspectives on the process of acquiring a new business. Most of our clients are already business owners and looking to ‘bolt-on’ a complementary business. Most too, are UK companies, but as well as our London base, we have an office in Bulgaria (the EU’s lowest Corporation and income tax jurisdiction) which means we’re connecting with more and more EU businesses looking to acquire UK businesses for the ‘Post-Brexit’ world (whatever that might look like)

At your brokerage, you will of course be in touch with business owners all the time. And while you will be advertising them on the usual portals and websites, tellling us about them, so that we can see if there’s a fit with our clients, makes sense too.

We start at £0.5Million up to £15Million in Turnover

With all new clients, we go through an extensive fact finding process to find out exactly what they are looking for in a new business. We talk through proceses, funding and the cultural fit of acquiring an existing business. We look at management styles and future planning.

We work closely, sometimes in the same office as our clients, right throughout the process. From start to finish we are beside our clients.

Research takes time of course, but the process of identifying an opportunity can be much qucker when we connect directly to you and your team.

Our fees are paid directly from our client, that means your fees (paid by the seller) are not connected to our services, or affected in any way.

As a Broker you have the seller, at Nudge, we have the buyer, so connecting make sense.

To receive a brief note via email when we have something that you could help with, sign up below. If you would like to talk to us, please feel free to pick up the phone and get in touch. Thanks for dropping by and we look forward to toasting a deal with you soon.

Strategy & Negotiations

Jamie – Founder, London


Under that swish looking cap is me, Jamie Sylvian, Founder at Nudge.

It’s not often you get the chance to mix your passions. I enjoyed my time (23 years) in the creative business. As a copywriter, I worked on some amazing projects. as a trainer in sales communications, I travelled the world and shared my experiences. The cut and thrust of deal making though has always been a passion. Honestly, it does not feel like work. Finding a creative company that fits like a glove to another, and making that deal happen is a real buzz.

Importantly, I connect with CEO’s and Directors of creative companies, I’ve been one and I know the mindset. That gives Nudge an edge over general brokers. We see ourselves as partners in the process. Importanly for me, I like creative people, they are open to ideas, suggestions and new approaches, that helps.

My experience in the creative sector.

For 23 Years I  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.

My first experiences with M&A

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  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)

Deal Flow Manager

Jennie
Deal Flow UK

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.

Finance

Nicola
Finance

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.
