S2 EP 11: Martha Lane Fox, Founder & Executive Chair, Doteveryone

During the Internet's nascent years, e-commerce startups faced one of the digital era's most daunting challenges: convincing consumers to not only use the Internet, but purchase online goods with their credit cards. Martha Lane Fox did that—and more—as co-founder of Lastminute.com, one of the first and largest websites to let people book travel. She joins our host David-Michel Davies to discuss Last Minute, as well as her non-profit Doteveryone and its work to combat gender and algorithmic bias, while pushing for sensible tech policy in the UK, and beyond.
