With several Fortune 1000 sales teams and hyper-growth startups, the company’s beta product has already gained significant traction.

Affinity’s CEO, Ray Zhou, has reportedly stated that the company’s goal is to assist working professional in maintaining and building relationships to accomplish the goals of selling products or services. Mr. Zhou considers the acquisition to be crucial as sales representatives and other professionals who rely on their network, can benefit from Nudge.ai’s proficient development team & innovative AI-based relationship intelligence algorithms.

The acquisition will lead to the opening of Affinity’s first global office in Toronto and accelerate the launch of new version of the sales product through expanded operations and technical teams. Steve Woods and Paul Teshima, founders of Nudge.ai, are set to join the new office as advisors.

Nudge.ai CEO & Co-founder, Paul Teshima has stated that the company’s corporate values and commitments clearly align with that of Affinity.
