'Snap Accelerate' is the name of a new accelerator program for VC-backed mobile start-ups that desire the resources and support to "kickstart and scale [a] business with Snap."

The accelerator for consumer-focused mobile commerce, entertainment and gaming companies is offered at different tiers, beginning with the most cost-effective Kickstart, Sprint and Scale, which offer different resources based on a business' needs.

One of the first businesses to join Snap Accelerate is a start-up out of the Netherlands called 'Bux,' which is a Millennial-targeted financial mobile app. As a result of enrolling in the program, Bux anticipates that it will be better able to connect with young generations and leverage Snapchat's many tools and advertising tactics.
