FedEx supports three Babson College programs for women entrepreneurs:

WIN (Women Innovating Now) Growth Lab:

A 12-week virtual program that targets founders who have launched their businesses and are ready for growth.

Small Business as a Driving Force for Inclusive Growth

Summary: 

The pandemic was devastating to small businesses in general, and minority-owned businesses in particular. Many minority-owned small businesses were already in financially fragile circumstances prior to the COVID-19 lock downs, and throughout the pandemic have faced greater disruptions, and rejection for loans and government relief at significantly higher rates than their white counterparts. (SCORE) To direct our resources where they are needed most, FedEx talked to small business experts and community leaders to understand the shifting needs of en trepreneurs - especially those struggling to keep up with the acceleration of e-commerce as a result of the pandemic.

In response to what we learned, we launched a new E-commerce Learning Lab, supported a new national, remote accelerator for Black women-owned businesses, supported remote business owner learning and networking opportunities, and brought a capital matching conference to our hometown of Memphis. In all, our Global Entrepreneurship work provided training, mentoring, networking, and capital to 45,000 business owners and 565,000 student entrepreneurs around the world in 2021.
