Jonathan Hassid

An internet-focused entrepreneur with both strategic and creative skills, Jonny left a successful career as a documentary film maker at the BBC in 2005 and co-founded a simple online media arbitrage business (Triple Echo).

“Applying for credit was once an over-complicated process unfairly weighted in favour of the lender.

We knew we could change that, so we built a free credit card comparison and eligibility checking service that would put the customer in control.”
