A Look At The Story Behind Bumble And Its Founder Whitney Wolfe

Whitney Wolfe is a technology entrepreneur who is the founder of the dating application Bumble. She also helped co-found another popular dating application called Tinder earlier.

Whitney Wolfe is considered by Forbes Magazine to be one of the 30 under 30 in consumer technology. This is a testament to Whitney Wolfe’s innovation and success in the field of technological development. Her total net worth is estimated to be around a quarter of a billion dollars according to the most recent estimates.

Whitney Wolfe is only 27 years old and has already helped create two of the most popular online dating applications in the world today. She holds a bachelors degree of arts in international studies from the Southern Methodist University in Dallas, Texas. Wolfe currently resides in Austin, Texas which is also where her dating application company Bumble is based in.

Whitney Wolfe created Bumble when she realized that an application where women were in charge was lacking. Bumble is unique from other dating applications in that only women can began a conversation with a man on the app. A man can only respond and send messages to a woman after she has sent him a message first. This has helped cut down on the number of spam messages and other inappropriate comments that tend to bombard women on traditional dating sites.

Women can message other women freely on Bumble if they are just looking for friendship or a same sex relationship. Men can also message other men freely if they are looking for friendship or a relationship with other men. Bumble uses a similar swiping feature that is found in Tinder. A woman and a man must first swipe each other and be in each other’s hive for it to be possible to communicate. Once a man and a woman show interest in each other, the woman can then take the initiative. A man must wait for a women to message him on Bumble, which puts females in charge in this app.
