We had a great time at the Media Guardian Innovation Awards last night, otherwise known as the Megas, particularly as our founders and Wonga.com were named Digital Entrepreneur of the Year!
The category we won is designed to reward those entrepreneurs and innovators who represent the spirit of the Megas and is usually a serial entrepreneur who has joined the dots to create an innovative product, or a startup founder who has shown that innovation is the true lifeblood of online success
The awards scheme, now in its fourth year, aspires to be the pinnacle of achievement in media innovation, bringing together innovative digital communications along with technology innovations.
TV presenter and the Guardian’s Tech Weekly podcast host, Aleks Krotoski, who was on the Megas judging panel, said:
This year’s entries reflected the way that new technology is feeding creative content and vice versa. The judges looked at a huge range of different entries; some were heavy, data driven technical websites while others were light and fun – but all shared a common sense that only through innovation can we make a digital future attractive to the public.
We’re proud to add the award to our cabinet and well done to all the other winners.
