  6. 6. • Snapchat is an image messaging and multimedia mobile application which was released on september 2011. • The corporate headquarters are located in Venice, California. • The idea behind creating snapchat was to create a selfie app which allowed users to share images that were explicitly short-lived and self- deleting.
  7. 7. Why is he an idol to me? • Despite choosing a promising career like that of his parents, Evan chose to do something off beat. • He was a below average student, but such an enthusiast bout his project that he dropped off his college degree without giving any second thought. • He turned down $3 billion from Facebook.“There are very few people in the world who get to build a business like this," he told Forbes at the time. "I think trading that for some short-term gain isn't very interesting."
