Crowdfunding platform RocketHub, which was recently acquired by entrepreneur network EFactor for $15 million, has partnered with independent network Ovation TV to launch a TV special about creative people raising money to fund their dreams through crowdfunding.
The TV special, which does not have a name yet, will be available to a potential audience of 50 million strong. (The Ovation TV network includes subscribers from Comcast Cable/Xfinity, DIRECTV/AT&T U-verse, Time Warner Cable, Verizon FiOS, Charter Communications, Bright House Networks, and a handful of other smaller providers.)
