ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- September 11, 2013

Liberty Interactive Corporation ("Liberty Interactive") (Nasdaq: LINTA, LINTB,
LVNTA, LVNTB) today announced the 2014 Women's eCommerce Network (W^eCN), a
unique program that pairs established women business leaders and executives
(the Council) with five early stage eCommerce companies (the Class) for a six
month mentorship period.

The 2014 program commences with an Opening Summit in Silicon Valley, where
each Class member is paired with two Council members who will counsel her
through a targeted, business-enhancing project. The six month mentorship
period then culminates in April with a Closing Summit hosted by Liberty
Interactive.

The W^eCN provides exposure to best practices and emerging trends, as well as
networking opportunities with the broader Council through the Summits and an
established Alumni network. The objective of the W^eCN is to establish
business relationships that will enhance the opportunities for long-term
business success and create a foundation for support that ensures the next
generation of women business leaders and executives.

“We are pleased to support the W^eCN,” said Greg Maffei, Liberty Interactive,
President and CEO. “Now in its third year, this growing network has attracted
an impressive group of female digital commerce executives – both as mentors
and class members. The WeCN has become a powerful tool for founders of young
eCommerce businesses with real promise.”

The W^eCN 2014 Council is comprised of distinguished business leaders,
entrepreneurs and investors from leading brands and companies. Many served as
mentors in 2011 and 2012 and are returning again for the third year. The
Council members are:

  * Nanon de Gaspé Beaubien-Mattrick, President & Founder, Beehive Holdings
  * Sukhinder Singh Cassidy, Founder & CEO, Joyus.com
  * Susan Feldman, Co-Founder & Chief Merchandising Officer, One Kings Lane
  * Theresia Gouw, Partner, Accel Partners
  * Divya Gugnani, Founder, Send the Trend (a QVC Subsidiary)
  * Jill Layfield, CEO, Backcountry.com
  * Dawn Lepore, former Chairman & CEO, drugstore.com
  * Barbara Messing, Chief Marketing Officer, TripAdvisor
  * Alison Pincus, Co-Founder & Chief Partnership Officer, One Kings Lane
  * Jana Rich, Managing Director, Russell Reynolds Associates
  * Alexandra Wilkis Wilson, Founder & Chief Merchandising Officer, Gilt
    Groupe

Joining the W^eCN 2014 Class are entrepreneurs of early-stage eCommerce
companies. Class members include:

  * Ruzwana Bashir, Co-Founder & CEO, Peek
  * Katina Mountanos & Liz Whitman, Co-Founders, Manicube
  * Sonia Nagar, Co-Founder & CEO, Pickie
  * Christy Prunier, Founder & CEO, Willa
  * Jill Sherman, Co-Founder & CEO, Modalyst

Also participating in year-three of the program are executives from Liberty
Interactive and QVC, including Andrea Wong, Liberty Board Member and President
of International Production for Sony Pictures Entertainment, Claire Watts,
CEO, QVC US, Robin Pringle, VP, Liberty Interactive and Courtnee Ulrich, VP,
Liberty Interactive.

Andrea Wong commented, “The program format of pairing established and
ascending eCommerce leaders to focus on real world business projects gives the
Class members a tangible benefit from the Network. It’s also about women
mentoring and helping each other to enable early stage business to achieve
long term success.”

The third W^eCN Opening Summit will take place on September 18, 2013 in
Silicon Valley. The day’s agenda includes discussions on building up the team,
including management around the CEO, board, advisors, and the structure of the
organization and scaling the business, and is designed around an intimate
format that encourages direct conversations and relationship building.
