HoneyBook launches inaugural $500,000 grant to empower emerging entrepreneurs and consultants

HoneyBook has introduced its inaugural Breakthrough Grant to empower early-stage marketing and creative consultants to scale their businesses

HoneyBook, the leading client management platform for independent businesses, has introduced its inaugural Breakthrough Grant to empower early-stage marketing and creative consultants with essential tools, resources, and mentorship to scale their businesses. This initiative represents a significant investment of $500,000 by HoneyBook, with plans to fund two rounds of the program by the end of the year, awarding 10 winners each cycle with a grant valued at $25,000.

Co-founder and CEO of HoneyBook, Oz Alon, emphasizes the evolving nature of work, with more individuals opting for the autonomy and flexibility of independent consulting. The Breakthrough Grant aligns with HoneyBook’s mission to support the success of independent businesses by providing vital resources and opportunities for growth.

In response to the changing employment landscape, HoneyBook’s Breakthrough Grant is a game-changer for professionals transitioning from corporate roles to consulting. This comprehensive package is tailored for entry-level independent businesses, offering a three-year Premium HoneyBook membership, $18,000 in cash for additional tools or training, personalized VIP onboarding, access to a private peer community, and exclusive workshops. It’s a unique opportunity to kickstart your consulting career.

With a proven track record of success, HoneyBook has helped its members achieve an average revenue growth of 34% in their first year. Since its inception in 2013, over 100,000 businesses in the U.S. and Canada have trusted HoneyBook, booking over $15 billion in business through the platform. This success positions HoneyBook as a reliable partner for emerging entrepreneurs.

The Breakthrough Grant is designed for early-stage marketing and creative consultants committed to business growth. While independent work is rewarding, it presents unique challenges that can lead to failure within the first five years. HoneyBook’s initiative addresses these challenges by equipping consultants with the necessary tools, education, and community support for long-term success.

Applications for the Breakthrough Grant are open from June 18 to July 16, 2024, and winners will be announced the week of August 5, 2024. Interested applicants can visit www.honeybook.com/lp/breakthrough_grant for eligibility criteria, application details, and additional information.

Looking ahead, HoneyBook plans to reopen the Breakthrough Grant to a second cohort of applicants later in the year, further supporting entrepreneurs on their path to independent business success. Through ongoing efforts, HoneyBook remains committed to investing $500,000 in capital and resources to bolster the growth of this fast-growing sector in 2024.
