Whitney Wolfe is a successful American entrepreneur. She is the founder and CEO of Bumble, which was founded back in 2014. Bumble is a social and dating application which enables interested partners to communicate to each other. The application allows women to be in control; it enables them to start a conversation with the males they are attracted to, unlike traditional dating apps. Bumble had reached more than 15 million sole conversations and over 80 million matches by December 2015. Bumble major shares are owned by the European dating company Badoo. The Bumble headquarters are located in Austin, Texas. Bumble had 11 million registered users by January 2017. Bumble has recently brought new perspectives, Erin and Sara who are said to have a mocking depiction of Hollywood on Barely Famous.
Bumble has grown not only as a dating application but into an app that allows users find friends and swipe through network connections. In October 2016, Bumble launched Bumble BFF. Bumble BFF is an app that uses the same swiping and matching procedures as the Bumble but for finding friends instead of dating. The app is entirely used by girls to find girl pals. In October 2017, Bumble launched Bumble Bizz. Bumble Bizz is an application designed to assist users to swipe through networking, helping women have an experience in the professional world.
