Help Femly Win a $25,000 Grant!
We are excited to announce that Femly is a finalist in the second annual Shea Moisture and Brown Girl Jane #BrownGirlSwap grant competition!!!
What is the Competition?
The #BrownGirlSwap grant is billed as "an unprecedented collaboration between a Fortune 500 and Indie brand," providing $150,000 in grants Black woman owned beauty and wellness businesses.
The grant can be used to fund critical business operations such as leasing office space, marketing, packaging, supplies. Grants like these help business owners who cannot always access traditional business financing like small business loans and VC funding. The competition also provides crucial visibility and business mentorship.
Why is winning a small business grant like this important?
Black women-owned businesses are the fastest growing sector in business today, but we are rarely afforded the same funding opportunities as our counterparts. In fact, according to a 2020 report from PitchBook, women of color are only awarded 2 percent of venture capital (VC) funding.
It's 2021 and VC funding is still predominately white men, providing capital to OTHER white men. But opportunities like these truly help fill that gap.
