Snapchat has been reportedly looking at funding deals all summer long as it continues to look at ways to grow. The app was even the target of a $3 billion offer from Facebook last year.

More recently, the company launched ads on its platform for the first time, giving it a little boost toward monetizing its disappearing message service. It also expanded “Our Campus Story” to all Snapchat users less than a week ago.

Snapchat is available for iOS and Android.
