Community Program Associate, Yellow —MBA Intern at Snap Inc.
Snap Inc. is a camera company. We believe that reinventing the camera represents our greatest opportunity to improve the way people live and communicate. Our products empower people to express themselves, live in the moment, learn about the world, and have fun together.
Yellow is an ecosystem that serves companies at the intersection of creativity and technology with our accelerator program, collabs program, and community programming.
The Yellow Collabs program is a remote, part time 15 week program for companies who want to work closely with the Snap Team to integrate with specific parts of the Snap Platform.
The Yellow Accelerator is a launchpad for creative minds and entrepreneurs building companies at the intersection of creativity and technology. Not only are we making an equity investment in promising creative entrepreneurs, but we’re also providing mentorship and guidance to help them level up their businesses through a 15 week accelerator program much faster than they could on their own.
Yellow Community finds new ways to support, convene, and educate members of the Yellow ecosystem through programming, networking events, newsletters, and more. This is our newest area of focus and an opportunity to bring real innovation, particularly in light of the reality of working from home.
