Bee Downtown

Bee Downtown is a startup that came to Atlanta from North Carolina after being accepted into the Engage accelerator program in Tech Square. 

Not your ordinary tech startup, Bee Downtown helps companies to become a part of rebuilding the vital bee population by placing multiple hives on the company's property (sometimes rooftops). The program includes maintenance of the hive by a professional beekeeper, regular quantified corporate social responsibility reports, and ways to meaningful engage employees with leadership and personal development workshops. 

Founder Leigh-Kathryn Bonner started the company during her junior year in college with two rooftop beehives. 

Bee Downtown is still based in North Carolina but aims to expand to more locations in Metro Atlanta.  To learn more, visit
