Cherie Edilson is the CEO & Co-Founder of Member Marketplace, Inc. Her company creates e-commerce marketplace platforms for communities to enable their small businesses to sell online together through a shared platform.
Member Marketplace operates sites in 16 states, and has partners from chambers of commerce, tourism bureaus, state and local governments, and small business development centers.
Before devoting her work to helping small businesses and communities sell online together, Cherie was a small business owner herself, selling her products both locally and via online outlets. It was that experience that led Cherie to find a better way to help small businesses leverage their shared connection, and help customers discover and buy from local businesses easier through a single customer experience.
Cherie has her Masters and Bachelors from the University of Northern Iowa, and fun fact, is one of twelve children in her family.
