Kehlani is one girl who is very vocal about her spirituality, health, and wellness journey. She has mentioned wanting to create her own sustainable garden and has always been an advocate for clean eating, mental health awareness, and just having a healthy lifestyle all around.
This passion has led her to develop Flora, a health and wellness platform and app. Flora will focus on health and wellness for the artist’s target audience of people between the ages of 16 and 25. The project has yet to launch but Backstage Capital, a venture capital firm dedicated to funding people of color, has invested $50,000 into the company.
“Bridging the gap between my career, activism and my audience is important to me as a next step. I am incredibly honored to work with Arlan, not only due to her outstanding work in the tech world, but her consistency in supporting queer women of color. I look forward to creating positive change and making strides in tech.” – Kehlani
Arlan Hamilton, Backstage’s founder, and managing partner will join Flora’s board and serve as a mentor and adviser.
“Kehlani is at the Soul Train Awards tonight in Vegas where she is up for Best R&B Female and is still Slacking with her co-founders and me about startup business. It’s been this way from all of her shows the past few weeks, including Voodoo Fest. She’s taking this incredibly seriously, and in my opinion, is approaching it like she would a new album or tour. It’s exciting to see her learning about the tech world, and I’m impressed with her interest in sharing the journey with her fans.” – Arlan Hamilton
