Whitney Wolfe is well known in the tech industry for her role in the creation of Tinder. 5 years later she’s wowing with her own app Bumble. Bumble stands out from the competition in a number of ways. For starters, it’s a distinctively feminist app aimed at empowering women.
Women are always the first ones to make moves in straight matches. The approach has made the app successful in keeping out problems such as sexual harassment and other apps are considering this approach.
Making Her Own Way
Whitney Wolfe is a fairly young CEO. She’s only 26 and she’s already led her own company and made a name for herself. From her beginnings as a tote bag seller to her release of an online dating app, it’s clear that she understands how to succeed in the real world. Bumble is an attempt to combine her business smarts with her sense of social justice. She is tired of the way the internet has enabled some of the crudest instincts of dating. To combat that she plans on doing everything she can to give women a way to filter that.
The Future Of Bumble
Bumble is now helping millions of people make matches and has resulted in hundreds of millions of hookups. For an app that’s been around for a mere 2 years that’s very impressive. However, this is not the end for Whitney Wolfe. She wants to do so much more with her app and she wants to do everything she can to help her app grow. Bumble is an experiment but it’s an experiment paying off. There is so much more left for growth and Wolfe understands exactly how she is going to reach her goals without any problem at all.
