iHookup Social Completes $1.5 Million Financing

Capital Now in Place for 12 Month Growth Plan

CAMPBELL, CA--(Marketwired - Aug 12, 2015) - iHookup Social, Inc. (OTC PINK: HKUP), a fully reporting public company that develops and markets a mobile app based on hyper-local connections, is pleased to announce it has secured $1.5 million in financing from Alpha Capital, providing the Company with necessary funds to execute its 12 month growth plan. The Company has received the first tranche of $750,000 and the second tranche will be received upon the achievement of certain performance criteria.

"We are pleased to announce that after months of negotiation iHookup Social has obtained the necessary funds to launch into the Friendable era," stated Robert Rositano Jr., CEO, iHookup Social. "The Friendable era means many things to our existing and new users of our app, as well as presenting new and exciting opportunity for our shareholders. The launch of our Friendable brand expands our audience potential and opens up the opportunity for our users to decide, why and when they are Friendable, as well as what they are Friendable for. This financing comes on the heels of our consolidation of previous debt, through our relationship with Coventry Enterprises, who has also invested over $1 million into our vision to assist us in reducing the number of sellers impacting our stock price. We now have long term investors with Coventry and our latest partner Alpha Capital, a major hedge fund with interests in the technology sector."

"Many OTC listed public companies fail simply because of the lack of capital needed to sustain operations and grow their business," added Rositano. "At last, I believe we have the capital to take our investors and the hundreds of thousands of users of our app into the Friendable era and into the spotlight of the Silicon Valley mobile app frenzy."

About iHookup Social:

iHookup Social is a mobile - social app positioned at the intersection of location based connections, love and adventure, stimulating hyper - local opportunities for our user community as well as the venues and merchants competing for their business.

The company seeks to redefine the way people connect, find love or embark on an adventure. iHookup Social is where real people make real connections and businesses pay to be their host. The by-product of our business model inherently produces "hyper-local" advertising opportunities for the company, driving customers to local venues and / or businesses. The laws of attraction or making a new connection have shifted, with the traditional meaning of "being social" or "meeting up", now taking a backseat to meeting online or through a mobile device and apps.

Making connections through online or mobile devices has become a dominant part of today's mobile-social lifestyle, across various social circles, age groups, race, gender and demographics. iHookup Social takes the virtual connection and moves it toward a real-life interaction, facilitating connections and offering-up locally relevant hot spots and locations to meet up with these new connections, allowing iHookup Social to become both matchmaker and concierge. This combination provides a unique opportunity for consumer brands to offer incentives to a growing network of socially active mobile users on a hyper-local basis.
