Snapchat Could Become One of the 3 Highest-Valued Startups in the World

TIME

Everyone shook their heads when Snapchat turned down Facebook’s $3 billion acquisition offer in 2013. At the time, Snapchat had zero revenue and almost no assets—what in the world was CEO Evan Spiegel thinking?

But the bold move is clearly paying off. Snapchat has since starting monetizing by adding content partnerships and advertisements to show its growing user base.
