Welcome to the Honeycomb Blog
Honeycomb is a new technology company with a mission to rebuild Main Street, Middle America. We’re doing that by creating a platform that allows amazing, locally-owned businesses to borrow expansion loans from their own loyal customers in their communities. Small businesses get access to affordable loans to grow while everyone in the community has the ability to invest locally in the communities they love. Win-win.
From our team’s collective experiences in lending, finance, and small business ownership, we’ve seen just how difficult it is for great businesses to get access to traditional credit. We believe this is holding our communities back, and we want to reverse that trend.
This blog will highlight the fascinating things we learn from small business owners, provide tips and tricks for running a business, and tell our own entrepreneurial story with all of the trials and tribulations that entails.
Thanks for joining us and happy reading!
