FedEx | Global Entrepreneurship

Advancing women and minority-owned small businesses and entrepreneurs around the world.

Small to mid-sized businesses power their local economies and can be powerful job creators, making up 60-80 percent of net new jobs in the U.S. annually. FedEx is committed to giving entrepreneurs everywhere the tools they need to succeed.

Women and minorities own over 50% of small business, but only earn 30% of revenues.* We want to change this by providing the training, mentoring, networking and access to capital needed to succeed.

FedEx was founded by an entrepreneur who created a new industry. That’s why we believe in the people who are willing to dream, take risks, persevere and change the world for the better.
