Baroness Lane-Fox of Soho, CBE

Co-founder of lastminute.com

Baroness Lane-Fox is the co-founder of the online travel and gift business, lastminute.com, which she sold in 2005 for £577 million. In 2009, she was appointed the UK Government’s Digital Champion to lead a two year programme aimed at making the British public more computer-literate. This role was later expanded to form the framework for all government digital initiatives and led to the formation of the Government Digital Service. Lane-Fox launched Go ON UK in 2012, a charity aimed at giving every individual in the UK technology skills and the confidence to benefit from the new digital services. In March 2013, Lane-Fox joined the House of Lords as a cross bencher, becoming its youngest female member.
