Errol Damelin, chief executive, started Wonga in 2006 when he realised short-term credit was one of the few consumer industries the internet had hardly touched. With models such as Amazon and Facebook in mind, he and technical director Jonty Hurwitz set out to create a website that would challenge competitors by offering instant decisions and total transparency over what borrowers would end up paying.
