At only 28 years old Whitney Wolfe has certainly taken the world by storm as Founder & C.E.O. of Bumble, a dating application that changed the ways of the online dating scene by allowing the women to make the first move, and being cofounder of the dating app, Tinder. She had seen her fair share of how ugly the online dating scene had gotten and rightfully, is how she had been inspired to start Bimble. Little did she know that by the Spring of 2016 her app would cross the 100 million dollar threshold and by 2017 be competing with “Tinder” the largest online dating application ever created with over 70% of online daters already using the app according to Forbes magazine.
Whitney Wolfe isn’t your average 28 year old though. She’s already made millions with Tinder and Bumble and she isn’t stopping there. She’s already branching out yet again with such ideas as Bumble bizz for people looking for employment and Bumble BFF for finding new friends.
