Are you ready to grow your business with the power of crowdfunding? Get started with these simple steps:

1. Check your social media

To work with Honeycomb you need 250+ followers on social media, and be a common small business industry!

2. Connect with an advocate!

Book a call with one of our small business advocates to get your questions answered.

3. Apply + get approved!

To apply for the loan portion, you'll need to know your credit score, have your financial statements nearby, and a simple business plan.

4. Meet your coach

You'll next kick-off your crowdfunding journey by strategizing your game plan with our expert coaches. They'll help you every step of the way.

5. Launch your campaign

Now the real fun begins: reach out to your network to get investments in your business! We share your campaign with our investor network too!

6. Get your money!

As soon as you hit your minimum goal, you can take out money and get to work on your business's growth, like Sami and Bruce did for their soap shop, Pip & Lola's third location!

Get fast, innovative, and fair financing with Honeycomb

It’s taken grit, determination, and countless late nights. But you should be proud of what you’ve built, because your community sure is.

We've worked with zero waste refill shops, James Beard Award-nominated restaurants, and everyone in between.

We connect entrepreneurs like you with investments from the folks who love you the most: your customers, fans, and community. Get the money, customers, and confidence to put your business’s stake in the ground.
