Tandem Drums Receives $20K FedEx Small Business Grant

Tandem Drums has been named as a 2024 recipient in FedEx’s Small Business Grants. FedEx chose 10 U.S.-based businesses out of roughly 4,000 considered to award its 2024 Small Business Grants.

Along with numerous business perks, the award includes a $20,000 grant which Tandem will use to help grow its business. FedEx cited Tandem’s successful crowdfunding launch in 2023, its global distribution and its commitment to using recycled materials in its product line as contributing factors to winning the award.

“We’re truly honored to be one of the few companies to win this award from FedEx,” said Daniel Kushner, founder of Tandem Drums. “As a small business, the funds are extremely helpful, but more importantly we view this award as an important marker on our journey to building an incredible company with a compelling story. To be validated by a global brand like FedEx, from outside of the music industry, is a testament to the care and craftsmanship that we put into everything we do. We’re grateful for FedEx’s partnership both now and in the growth years ahead.”

“At FedEx, we are dedicated to empowering our small and medium-sized business owners and equipping them with impactful resources for success,” said Aimee DiCicco, FedEx’s senior vice president of customer engagement marketing and retail channel solutions. “We’re thrilled to showcase these amazing entrepreneurs and are committed to helping their businesses thrive and grow.”

Tandem Drums launched in 2023 following a successful crowdfunding campaign for its first product line, Drops, which are a collection of drum effects designed by industrial designer and drummer Daniel Kushner, who previously founded MONO cases.
