Founders: Paul Teshima (CEO) & Steve Woods (CTO)

HQ: Toronto, ON, Canada

Founded: 2014


Nudge.ai was co-founded in 2014 by former Eloqua executives, Paul Teshima and Steve Woods. After having successfully guided Eloqua to a market leading position in marketing automation from $0 to over $100 million in revenue, then through IPO and acquisition by Oracle for $957 million, Teshima and Woods recognized another massive challenge to solve – this time, however, it was on the sales side.

The best sales professionals understand that people buy from people they know, like and trust. In a world that’s becoming overloaded with information, it’s becoming harder to build trusted, authentic relationships with buyers and existing customers. This is where Teshima and Woods saw the biggest challenge, and the biggest opportunity yet to be solved.

Teshima and Woods have set out to build a solution that leverages the strength of relationships to help sales teams find and keep their best customers.
