Work-Bench Case Study:
Building Community

Building Community
Work-Bench is an enterprise-focused venture fund and community that scales enterprise technology startups by providing community and workspace, connecting exceptional builders to Fortune 500 buyers, and co-investing in extraordinary founders tackling huge markets. Honey was a perfect fit.

Founded in 2012, Work-Bench has been at the center of NYC’s enterprise tech community. They provide members with access to mentors, industry research, and networking events. They wanted an intuitive and effective platform that would allow members to stay updated on the latest industry news and aware of resources available throughout the Work-Bench community.

Rollout & Adoption:
Honey has quickly become a favorite tool across the Work-Bench community. It is the one-stop destination for new member onboarding, info about community events, job candidate referrals, and member feedback about everything from helpful business tools to favorite lunch destinations in the neighborhood.

Positive Surprises:
Honey has helped build friendships between Work-Bench community members as well! In addition to sharing business related resources and industry news, members also post photos of their pets and babies and lots and lots of Star Wars posts.

Work-Bench’s Community Coordinator, Laurel, posts Fun Facts about members; so far she has discovered the community includes a record-holding Jeopardy contestant, a rockstar, and race car driver!
“We’ve been able to hear from our members, surface questions and feedback, and see diverse and high quality content and information that’s shared across the community.”
