Whitney Wolfe has gained plenty of attention in today’s world by being one of the most successful businesswomen. In an industry that is dominated by men, the tech industry, Wolfe has created a company that is, both, innovative and popular. The company is Bumble, and it is an app that allows women to make the first move in the online dating world. She also created Bumble Bizz, which is an app for professionals, and Bumble BFF, which helps women to make new friends. She was one of the co-founders of Tinder but left the company after some issues with one of the other co-founders. After moving on from the company, she quickly made a big splash with her own company.
Bumble has grown at a rapid pace due to its innovative, female-focused approach, and Whitney Wolfe is taking it to the top. As one of the most popular dating apps, there are 30 million people using it, and it is turning conventional dating upside down by providing women with a safe environment where they get to choose who they want to connect with. The company is currently worth over a billion dollars, and it isn’t expected to slow down any time soon. With the additions of Bumble Bizz and Bumble BFF, Wolfe has created a thriving social network.
Whitney Wolfe started out her professional life while she was studying at Southern Methodist University where she was majoring in International Studies. While there, created her first company where she sold bamboo tote bags. This was a nonprofit business where the proceeds went to help marine habitats that had been damaged by the BP oil spill that happened off of the Gulf Coast. Celebrities joined the cause and were photographed carrying her tote bags, which eventually placed Whitney Wolfe in the national spotlight. This helped her cause even more and inspired her to take part in other charitable causes and ventures.
Whitney Wolfe had no intention of creating another dating app, at first, after leaving Tinder but changed her mind after meeting with Andrey Andreev, the founder of Badoo. He convinced her to spend her energy on a project where her skills would help her to shine, and so she named her app Bumble and developers got to work turning it into a dating app that empowered women. Wolfe felt that this kind of online dating app would be a good thing for men as well, because they would not have to feel forced to male the first move.
