Facebook announced that it's adding benefits provided by Stripe to FbStart, as well as launching a new site where members can manage their benefits and learn more about the program.

Faceobook first announced FbStart at its f8 developer conference back in April. It's basically a program that provides startups with tools and resources to help them grow. It includes thousands of dollars worth of tools and services to eligible companies with a growing partner list.

Facebook's Micahel Huang writes:

This year, we've added new partners and their free benefits to the program, increased the value of those benefits, and launched an international tour to meet with startups in cities like New York, Boston, Austin, Seattle, Dublin, London, Sao Paulo, and San Francisco. By providing free benefits along with our partner companies, and meeting with thousands of startups in person, FbStart is helping developers build, grow and monetize their businesses.

Today we are announcing that FbStart members (both Bootstrap and Accelerate) will now have access to up to $50,000 in payment processing from Stripe, which joins the 17 other partner companies providing FbStart benefits.

Facebook says it will reach out to existing members with more details about how to log into the new site and redeem Stripe benefits
