EFactor Group Corp. Plans Live Events Worldwide to Connect Its Social Networks to Funding Options and Investors

Multi-City Events Planned to Expose Entrepreneur-Members to Funding Options on RocketHub; ELEQT's Member-Investors Targeted to Evaluate Funding Opportunities

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Jan 26, 2016) - EFactor Group Corp. (OTCQB: EFCT) ("EFactor Group," the "Group" or the "Company"), the premier business network for entrepreneurs designed to provide a variety of tools and business services to help drive business success, today announced its plans to host a series of member events to advertise and educate its Social Network members on its Funding Division's crowdfunding option and connect both with an active investor base. Based on the Company's success of its web-based marketing program reported on January 13th, 2016, EFactor Group elevated their co-marketing program to its 'live-events schedule' which it is planning to roll out in multiple US cities and major capitals around the world throughout the first half of 2016. 

Executed during the fourth quarter of 2015, EFactor's web-based program cross-pollinated members of the Group's 2.0 million-strong Social Network to its Funding Division and RocketHub's crowdfunding services for entrepreneurs and startups. The marketing program produced 400 new crowdfunding programs on RocketHub and helped RocketHub fund 60 crowdfunding campaigns.

EFactor is leveraging the success of its entrepreneur-focused program and planning a series of live events for face-to-face engagement for members in cities throughout the US and abroad. Events are free but accessible only to members currently registered on any of the Group's four social networking platforms. Attendees will be educated on the crowdfunding industry, RocketHub's crowdfunding services and also learn of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission's ("SEC") rules to permit companies to offer and sell securities through crowdfunding to an expanded group of potential investors. The events will also unveil EFactor.com's soon-to-be released EScore 2.0 which helps entrepreneurs measure their business' appeal to investors with a self-measurement scorecard, exclusive to EFactor.com members. 

"Live events are the pinnacle of our offering to members and what differentiates us from pure-play, web-only social networks," Marion Freijsen, COO of EFactor Group Corp. stated. "Connecting our Social Network Division to our Funding Division demonstrated the business leverage we can provide to our acquisitions through connecting our divisions to each other. Live events also boost our adoption and return rates due to the natural value face-to-face meetings provide, particularly in the funding arena where investors want to meet the management teams in which they invest. Our live events also provide us with the added benefit of co-sponsorship opportunities for partners in our business services division and the many companies who have also identified entrepreneurs as a fast-growing market for their products and services."
