Snap Inc. was founded in 2011 by Stanford students Evan Spiegel, Reggie Brown, and Bobby Murphy. Reportedly, Brown came up with the idea of a social media app that enabled users to post photos and videos that disappeared from the site after a few moments and launched . In July, 2011, the co-founders released “Picaboo”, the precursor to Snapchat, but right afterward, Spiegel and Murphy forced Brown out of the company, and relaunched the company as Snapchat in September, 2011. Both Stanford students were only juniors at the time. As for Brown, he settled for $157 million in September 2014 with the two co-founders. Today, they have a strong management team, relatively low debt, and a passionate user base. Snapchat is in a great position for growth going forward. Today, Snap serves two constituencies: its users, who average of about 220 million a day, and the advertisers who pay Snap to reach those users. Almost all of Snap's revenue comes from advertisers.
