His project seeks to raise funds for a robotics program in Boyle Heights (East Los Angeles). The complete list of projects are included on RocketHub.com/creativestudio.

"Crowdfunding is a perfect fit for Ovation's goals to empower artists and creators," said Stephen Dypiangco, VP, Ovation Digital Arts. "We reviewed several crowdfunding platforms, and are very pleased to have partnered with RocketHub. RocketHub's successful track record in crowdfunding, its commitment to technology, and its diverse and creative community, were the characteristics which validated our partnership. Feedback has been very positive from both the artists and fans thus far. "

Resulting from the Ovation partnership, RocketHub reported a 32.7% month-to-date increase in traffic to its site compared to the previous month, September, 2015. RocketHub believes that such programs and partnership are expected to increase results in coming quarters. Rocket Hub's performance will be reported as part of its reporting to EFactor Group Corp., its parent and publically-reporting entity under currently listed on OTC Markets under ticker, EFCT.
