Friendable Pursues U.S. Federal Technology Grant as Combination Funding Strategy for Less Dilutive Funding Options to Extend Technologies, add TikTok Design & Features and White Label Offerings for New Markets

Subsidized Funding, Combined With Traditional Capital Raising can Reduce Dilutive Stock Offerings, While Positioning the Company to Compliment U.S. Efforts to ban or Replace the TikTok App

CAMPBELL, CA, April 05, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via NewMediaWire – Friendable Inc. (OTC: FDBL) (the “Company”), a mobile technology, marketing, and software services provider, is pleased to announce its plans to submit federal and state level grant applications in the areas of technology, business, and commerce.

These efforts are focused on reducing the Company’s cost of acquiring capital, by combining grant submissions with traditional fund-raising efforts the Company can position itself to achieve development and growth capital on a less dilutive basis overall, when combined with a successful grant or award.

Friendable’s management is preparing to advance its initiatives and is preparing for a grant filing in the near term. The Company will continue utilizing internal resources to aid in the extension of the various technologies developed and owned by the Company, while its traditional fund-raising efforts are put in place for this combination approach to a capital raise.

“Our efforts remain focused as we set our sites on combining grant funding with traditional capital raising efforts. It seemed only logical to explore federal and state level technology grants as the U.S. House of Representatives Foreign Committee voted on a bill that would, on the surface, give the U.S. government the ability to impose a full ban on TikTok, under the Emergency Economic Powers Act. Seeing this unfold has led us to believe there is tremendous power in partnering with the U.S. Government in any way shape or form, which I believe can start with technology grants that may assist and align with the goals set out by the U.S. Foreign affairs committee. I see opportunity on many fronts as we compartmentalize our technology and platforms for the opportunities that are right in our path. Stay tuned for additional white label market opportunities we’ve identified for our technology as well,” said Robert A. Rositano Jr., Friendable, Inc. CEO.
