Brent Faiyaz Kicks Off Second Annual Grant Program As He Aims To Give $60K To Black Women Entrepreneurs

Brent Faiyaz has shown appreciation for the ladies since his music career kicked off. In the beautiful spirit of Women’s History Month, the R&B singer is taking his pen from writing lyrics to checks to support his fans. Faiyaz has launched his second annual Show U Off grant — named after his track released in March 2021 — to financially support Black women entrepreneurs, according to Billboard. Black women founders face the most trials when attempting to secure VC funding, so the Grammy-nominated artist aims to play a role in helping to alleviate that by providing funding to jumpstart their innovative ideas. “I want this to be the future of how Black business is done,” he said in a statement, according to Billboard. “Black people fund Black people.” Similar to last year’s program, as previously reported by AfroTech, the $60,000 fund will be awarded among six Black women entrepreneurs.
