Sean “Diddy” Combs was honored this past Sunday (February 13) at the 2011 Annual Bryan-Michael Cox Pre-Grammy Brunch. The annual event, which took place at the Four Seasons hotel in Beverly Hills, was organized by Cox, SESAC and 100 Urban Entrepreneurs.
100 Young Entrepreneurs is a non-profit organization whose mission is to help provide a meaningful, long-term economic boost to urban communities throughout the United States by supporting entrepreneurship at its earliest stages.
After hearing the stories of the young go-getters, Diddy was inspired to dig into his wallet and donate $100,000 to the foundation.
“”Puff challenged me early on by asking, Son, do you know how hot you really are? I walked away wanting to make even greater music,” Bryan-Michael Cox said. “Minorities are fundamentally at a disadvantage because many lack the access to financial resources and mentoring opportunities to start sustainable businesses.”
