About this event

Brent Hoberman has founded Lastminute.com together with Martha Lane Fox. They founded LastMinute.com in 1998, an online travel and gift business that floated at the peak of the dot-com bubble. Despite the burst of the bubble, the company managed to survive and do well.

Brent was a survivor of the bubble and remained as CEO of Lastminute.com Ltd. The company was later acquired by Sabre who purchased the company’s equity and bond debt for £577 million. In 2006 he handed over the CEO position to Ian McCaig, but remained as Chairman and Chief Strategic officer of the company until 2007.

Later Brent started other impressive businesses, like Made.com and Founders Forum.
