Crowdfunding Comparison: Honeycomb Credit vs. Mainvest



If you’ve been considering regulation crowdfunding as an option for financing your business’s next move, you may have been considering a portal such as Mainvest as well as Honeycomb. Here, we detail the differences and similarities between Honeycomb Credit and Mainvest so you can clearly see for yourself.


In short, Honeycomb differs from Mainvest in terms of customer success, credit analysis / financial vetting, and to what extent your business is marketed to the portal’s network. This has led to a major difference in success rates between the two platforms (83% compared to Mainvest’s ~60%) and the quality of campaigns that are being run on each platform.

Monkey Wrench Brewing has raised two Honeycomb campaigns to expand their Georgia brewery, and Frisco’s Chicken just wrapped up a campaign on Honeycomb to open up two more locations of their popular Peruvian chicken restaurant in Pennsylvania.


Check out these numbers:


As you can see, both companies were able to raise more money on Honeycomb than on Mainvest. Monkey Wrench and Frisco’s Chicken raised 5 times more, and Monkey Wrench had a 19% smaller cost of capital. Additionally, Honeycomb campaigns on average see a 60% increase in year-over-year revenue, thanks to the ability to grow their business and the marketing boost they received thanks to their crowdfunding campaign.
