About the Melinda F. Emerson Foundation For Small Business Success

The Melinda F. Emerson Foundation for Small Business Success was established to enable more people to fulfill their entrepreneurial dreams. We are facilitating small business success through providing free information, educational materials and executive educational opportunities for minority and women-owned businesses.

The Foundation was founded in 2012 in response to Melinda’s experiences training and mentoring small business owners across the country. Melinda believes that through technical support and education, small business owners can overcome the challenges they face and play an important role in building the world’s economy.

The Melinda F. Emerson Foundation is dedicated to igniting a movement to end small business failure.
