HoneyBook event planning platform has announced a Series B funding round worth $22 million. The company says it will use the new funds to expand to every major city in the US within the next 12 months.
“What this investment proves is that HoneyBook is a company with which you can place more and more of the burden of business ownership: We handle your most secure documents, we take care of your payments, we help you manage your most valuable clients. This is a responsibility I’ve never taken lightly. Expect more magic from us this year,” Oz Alon, CEO of HoneyBook, wrote on the company’s blog.
Alon, together with his wife, Head of Product Naama Alon, and friends CTO Dror Shimoni, and Head of Customer Experience Shadiah Sigala – started the company in 2013 in Israel. Today, the company is headquartered in San Francisco with a development office in Tel Aviv.
HoneyBook is a technological platform that streamlines all elements of event planning that can be accessed from any web-enabled device.
“An event professional’s purpose is to create unforgettable moments for their clients. When an event comes together, every elementfrom the space to the sound to the visualsworks together in harmony to create the perfect experience. Unfortunately, the processes and tools used to plan these events are too often disconnected. At HoneyBook, we believe that this process should be as fluid as the event itself. We’re here to change that by enabling event pros to collaborate effortlessly with their networks, speak the same language with each other, and deliver those ‘wow’ moments from the very first interaction with a client,” CEO Alon told Globes.
