Whitney Wolfe: The Boss Babe Who Created Bumble

Whitney Wolfe has created a social networking application that helps people within close proximity to connect. The unique and fastest growing dating app is called Bumble. This has sparked all sorts of wonderful things, from life-long loves to life-long friends.

The 28-year-old CEO thought of a new angle at which to approach dating apps. She realized that other apps were not geared towards women. At Bumble, the women have to make the first move by sending the first message within 24-hours. This empowers women to be brave and helps to ensure that women do not get any unwanted messages from matches.

Once the dating piece of Bumble was created, she implemented Bumble BFF, which allows people of the same sex to meet friends. This way, women can find new women to chat over cocktails and men can find new work out buddies.

The Bumble headquarters are located in Austin, Texas. Whitney Wolfe attended Southern Methodist University in Dallas, so the move to Austin made sense. Austin has a booming technology industry and is a great place for such a successful application to blossom even more.

Up next for Bumble is Bumble Bizz, which was rolled out in October. The new project is geared towards professional networking and mentoring. With the same principle behind Bumble, the women on Bumble Bizz make the first contact. From this application, users have the ability to upload example of their work, their resume, and any special skills they have. This application is not built for actually applying for jobs. Instead, the goal is to connect with other professionals in order to support and encourage each other. This application has the potential to help empower women, to connect like-minded professionals, and to provide aid for those who are moving forward in their careers.

In 2015, Michael Herd, her boyfriend of three years, proposed to Wolfe while they were visiting his ranch in Texas. In September of this year Whitney and Michael finally tied the knot. The couple held wedding in Positano, Italy. It was a true celebration of the couple’s love for each other.

2017 has been a big year for the young entrepreneur. With a new branch of the incredibly successful business and a new marriage, Whitney Wolfe is just at the beginning of her adventure through success.
