Are you a user of Bumble, a dating app founded by Whitney Wolfe in 2014? Bumble is one of the fastest and most sought-after dating platforms, especially by women. In fact, this is the only platform that enables women to make the first move. Upon its founding, Wolfe had the vision of making Bumble a first-female social networking site aimed at creating connections with people they don’t know, a concept that’s on the path of fully being realized. Do you have any idea regarding the number of users that had subscribed to Bumble just four years after it was launched? Unimaginably, Bumble had managed to attract 35 million users in only a small span of time!
Three months ago, it was estimated that Bumble’s owner Whitney Wolfe was on her path towards surpassing the $230 million fortune with Forbes valuing the company at $1 billion, a move that positions the 29-year old towards her way towards becoming a billionaire. Forbes further predicts that it won’t take too long before Whitney Wolfe joins this rank provided Bumble keeps on growing. Early this year, Wolfe made into the list of Forbes “30 Under 30” list and recently put on Fast Company’s cover, WIRED magazines, and Forbes. Read this article at vogue.com to know more about Wolfe.
Are you aware that Bumble is now in more than 144 countries across the globe? With such rapid expansion, Whitney Wolfe is headed to greatness. Having been part of the founding partners of Tinder, another dating app, Wolfe decided that it was the right time for her to start her own company, a move that has seen the company growing in leaps and bounds.
Among other things that Wolfe was passionate about, putting women in full control or masters of their destinies was just a part of the feminist approach of Bumble. Bumble’s one billboard that reads “We’re not playing the field, we’re leveling it,” says it all. Today, there are predictions that Bumble will grow even to some of the most conservative countries across the globe. Starting small, Bumble is turning out to be a giant dating app.
