Martha Lane Fox (born 1973) is a British e-commerce business woman, daughter of Robin Lane Fox and great-niece of Charles Henry Alexander Paget, 6th Marquess of Anglesey.

She was educated at Oxford University and Westminster School.

Ms. Lane Fox, together with Brent Hoberman, founded Lastminute.com in 1998, an online travel and gift business that floated at the peak of the dot-com bubble, and managed to survive the subsequent bubble's burst.

She is also a trustee of Reprieve, a prison reform charity, and a director of a nightclub called Century.

On November 20, 2003, it was announced that she would step down as managing director of Lastminute so that she might "explore other challenges", though she remains a non-executive director. She was replaced by Ian McCaig, Lastminute's chief operating officer.

On December 28, 2003, it was revealed by The Sunday Telegraph that Ms. Lane Fox would become "righthandwoman" of Galen Weston, owner of Selfridges, and take over the day-to-day running of the business.
