Innovators are making it easier and easier to make social connections without necessarily having to attend events or have those weird first-time conversations with strangers in the streets. Several sited have been developed where people can connect and interact, get to know each other well and get done with introductions and formalities before they come into contacts. From apps like tinder which is a dating app to Bumble BFF which is a site for finding friends and recently BumbleBizz which is a dating app of its own kind. The difference between BumbleBizz and other dating apps is that it is women-focused. Other than these apps being about connecting with other people either as friends or could-be lovers, these apps also have a person in common who either founded or co-founded them, Whitney Wolfe.
Whitney Wolfe is 29-year-old American mogul and business executive. She majored in International Studies at the Southern Methodist University. Her entrepreneurial ventures began while she was still studying at the university. Whenever she saw a business opportunity of any kind, she made her move. Her first self-started company was a bamboo selling company that she established at a time when the BP oil spill scandal happened, and there was the need for the product in the affected areas. At the young age of 19, she partnered with a celebrity stylist to establish a non- profit organization, Help Us Project which garnered a lot of publicity. This was the beginning of a bright career for Wolfe.
In 2012, Whitney Wolfe joined tinder and helped in creating the dating app. She became the vice president of the marketing department at Tinder. She performed tremendously in her tasks as she made it possible for Tinder to reach users like the Universities and college students. Upon leaving Tinder, she founded Bumble which hosts the apps Bumble Bizz and Bumble BFF. The company has more than twenty million subscribed users, and the apps are taking the market by storm. Bumble is known for promoting feminism even with its products like BumbleBizz which majorly focuses on giving the women power in dating.
At a very young age, Whitney Wolfe has achieved tremendous success, receiving multiple awards and garnering herself a two hundred and fifty net worth. She has currently adopted the last name Herd with the marriage to Mr. Michael Herd.
