SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 21, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- EFactor, the world's largest network for entrepreneurs, will be the first entrepreneurial online platform with videoconferencing technology. It has partnered with ViVu, a leader in desktop videoconferencing solution, to provide global entrepreneurs a virtual environment that makes business meetings, webinars and eLearning a much more accessible and personal experience. As the first entrepreneurial online platform with videoconferencing capability, EFactor is supporting the way entrepreneurs execute business partnerships, communicate with clients, contact investors and sponsors, and absorb knowledge from mentors in the most convenient and interactive way.

Unlike videoconferencing in other social networks, EFactor's new feature is HD quality with extremely low bandwidth consumption that does not require any installation of hardware or software downloads, enabled by ViVu's MXTP™ technology. One-on-one video chat is free, while group chat up to 8 people costs only $6/month.  Users will even be able to invite non-EFactor members to videoconference or choose different degrees of audience interaction suitable for a video presentation.  EFactor will soon launch a campaign to promote this feature: "Founder-to-Founder, Face-to-Face," which will highlight the community as a revolutionary force, showing the way local and global entrepreneurs conduct business around the world.  Combining videoconferencing with EFactor's various events and tools such as its Mentor Program also aligns with the vision of "making the world a better place."  By giving immediate and easy video access to an incredible lineup of mentors, experts, webinars and eLearning, EFactor continues to elevate the success of aspiring and present entrepreneurs.

"We want to help business owners better communicate with each other while saving cost," Marion Freijsen, co-founder and COO of EFactor, states.  "Adding ViVu's great technology to EFactor's made sense as one of EFactor's core philosophies is the fact that you do business by meeting one another, getting face-to-face. We feel strongly that this new functionality will assist us in helping entrepreneurs receive knowledge and funding, taking part in or running conferences in a visual meeting format."
