Snap’s Yellow Accelerator, which bills itself as “a launchpad for creative minds and entrepreneurs who are looking to build the next generation of great media companies”, has unveiled its newest class, its 3rd in its history. The 14-week accelerator program is housing 10 companies that will receive $150K in investment and mentorship from industry professionals – both inside and outside of Snap, in addition to a number of other benefits designed to help the startups scale.
“Building from the momentum of our first two Yellow programs, this new class approaches mobile creativity through the diverse lenses of augmented reality, platforms, commerce, and media, yet each company has a clear vision to bring their products to life,” said Mike Su, Director of Yellow. “This class shows us that there’s no shortage of innovation at the intersection of creativity and technology, and we’re excited to be part of each company’s journey.”
The program, since its inception in the Spring of 2018, has graduated startups that include Hashtag Our Stories, Love Stories TV, Toonstar, and MuzeTV.
