About Give It A Nudge

At The Nudge Group, our mission is to connect you with world class talent at every stage of your business growth journey, from start-up to unicorn. As part of this mission, we love to tell stories about the people and companies we work with.

That’s why we launched Give It A Nudge, a video podcast series, filmed in a TV production studio (in conjunction with Live Productions), where our founder & CEO, Steve, interviews other founders & CEOs about their journey and helps them to share their unique story.

We love telling stories, whether it’s about how one of our clients scaled from a local Australian operation to an international company with offices all over the globe. Or how three founders met and came up with an idea to change the world of connecting remote teams. Or how a solo founder worked tirelessly day and night to reach a massive exit.

But Give It A Nudge isn’t just about interviewing founders, it’s about helping them learn more about the start-up and scale-up space to grow their business. Past guests on our show include lawyers and private equity firms, providing insights and advice into the whole ecosystem.
