EFactor Group's Social Networks Division Surpasses 2.0 Million Members

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Oct 22, 2015) -  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 the Group's Social Networks Division surpassed 2.0 million members as a result of new registrations across all social network platforms including EFactor.com, the Company's hub of its entrepreneur-focused social network to connect, educate, service and help fund entrepreneurs. 

EFactor Group's Social Networks division is one of three, dedicated business divisions tailored to service the needs of entrepreneurs worldwide. The Group's divisions include; Social Networks, Business Services, and Funding. In each division, EFactor Group has acquired businesses aligned with each Division's focus and the collective mission of EFactor to help entrepreneurs "Build Better Businesses".

EFactor Group's Social Network Division is founded on EFactor.com, the Group's member-based, social networking website for entrepreneurs. After a member registers their profile, the site's algorithm encourages members connect with each other, educate themselves in a community of entrepreneurs, learn about needed business services, review funding options like RocketHub and prepare for future financing considerations by participating in EScore™. Escore™ is a service provided to EFactor members that measures an entrepreneur's business performance in key areas of leadership, sales and marketing, technology, finance, and social value. As ratings improve in each area, EScore™ advocates that an entrepreneur's business is better prepared to be considered an attractive investment.

EFactor.com was launched in 2008. The Group added its second and third businesses to its Social Networks division in 2014. In July of 2014, Netherlands-based GroupCard, B.V. was acquired by the Group and added to the Social Networks Division. GroupCard uses community-based social networks to build fan loyalty for small and mid-sized sporting leagues and teams in Europe. GroupCard indirectly funds sports teams through a percentage of consumer (fan) purchases at designated retail locations also participating in the GroupCard program. Fans are identified by a co-branded GroupCard/team logo card presented to the retailer who allocates a percentage of profits from the sale to the member's team. This percentage is automatically accrued and then wired to the team's finance department. 

In October of 2014, the Group then acquired, ELEQT, Ltd. ELEQT is an exclusive social discovery network for trendsetters in style and business. ELEQT uses social networking by offering a trusted social network, www.eleqt.com, where members can engage with fascinating people to meet, discover things to do, review places to go and learn of trends to follow. ELEQT also organizes hundreds of exclusive member-only events around the world sponsored by dozens of brands such as Maserati®, Moet-Chandon® and the Ritz-Carlton® who are actively marketing their products and services to ELEQT members. ELEQT's network will be presented entrepreneurial financing opportunities for EFactor.com members and automatically provided access to EFactor.com. EFactor.com members are provided access to ELEQT if they have enrolled in a VIP Membership.

EFactor Group recorded 1.9 million members of its Social Networking Division as of June 30, 2015. In September, EFactor.com launched its upgraded website, new content, and improved functionality. The subsequent marketing of the site and the growth of the EFactor.com network through September and into October is credited to the Division surpassing its 2.0 million member mark. 

Marion Freijsen, Co-Founder and COO of EFactor Group Corp., stated, "EFactor.com is the heart and soul of our Company and it is the core focus of our Group and target market. The total market of entrepreneurs is estimated at 300 million worldwide from which we have targeted 90 million entrepreneurs who can be serviced by our office locations, have an active engagement on the internet, and engage on social media platforms. For each successive quarter, we plan to see an increase in members as we enhance our offerings to engage and further monetize members of our fast-growing Social Networks Division."

EFactor.com provides freemium and paid-for VIP membership options. In addition to membership revenues, EFactor.com also earns revenues from on-line ad placement and click-through advertising results from a list of brand-leading businesses who have equally targeted entrepreneurs for their products and services.
