According to the company, a one-year accelerator program will give financing, mentoring, and other resources to 25 Black Snapchat businesses. The project is similar to other big platforms’ efforts to encourage future creators from historically underrepresented backgrounds.

“Black creators confront specific structural challenges across the creative sector,” according to Snap, “from inequities in income and attribution to toxic experiences and more.”

“We feel that one of the ways we can assist eliminate some of those obstacles is to give mentoring and financial resources to young Black innovators in the early phases of their professional career,” she continues.

Snap provides monthly stipends, coaching, and early product updates to selected applicants.

Snap will pay $10,000 per month for a year to each participant “to assist the applicants’ creative aspirations.” They will also receive the App Star status and a Google Pixel 7 Pro.

This App contains the most recent digital business initiatives to establish initiatives for minority producers, giving money and other resources while admitting employment challenges. YouTube announced the beneficiaries of its #YouTubeBlackVoices Fund earlier this year, carrying on a 2020 pledge to “amplify” Black talent over three years.

According to the company, the ad is part of its ongoing efforts to represent the variety and interests of Snapchatters.
The effort is a collaboration between Snap and Google Pixel, UNCMMN, and Westbrook Media, and is part of Snap’s 523 program, which is “intended to assist and showcase small, minority-owned content producers and creatives who normally lack access and resources.”

After accepting applications through August 12, Snapchat will choose creators in early September.
