We live in an insanely busy world. Many people have commitments such as family, friends, job, hobbies, exercising, and more. All of these commitments make it hard for someone to branch out, meet someone new, and start a relationship. Although society is busier than ever, it also means we are lonelier than ever. Nowadays, it’s harder than ever to make friends. People are independent and are less inclined to branch out and experience face to face interaction.
Luckily, there are people working hard to change the loneliness that we feel. One of those people is Whitney Wolfe Herd. Whitney is the very successful founder and CEO of Bumble which is America’s fastest growing dating app. For those who don’t know what Bumble is, it’s an app where women get to make the first move. Whitney believes in empowering women and she realized that other dating apps didn’t exactly make women feel comfortable. That’s how this one was born. Men can’t contact women unless they decide to send the first message. Whitney has seen such success with Bumble that she’s growing her company even more.
Bumble is now branching out with new apps. There’s now a Bumble BFF and Bumble Bizz for those who are looking for more than just a relationship. Whitney herself said that she remembers the days when she struggled to make friends and wished there was an easier way. Therefore, she created an easier way. Bumble BFF is simply an app for those looking for friends. It can be based on geographical location and interests which helps to forge strong connections.
Whitney Wolfe Herd has been highly successful and wants to help other women feel the same. She’s just been named Forbes “Class of 2018 30 Under 30.” Her Bumble headquarters is located in Austin and the staff is 70% women who believe in the mission behind Bumble. Whitney Wolfe Herd is now helping even more women out. The Bumble Bizz app is great for those who are looking to make business connections, potentially look for new careers, and meet like-minded people. After the success of all these different avenues Bumble is pursuing, it’ll be interesting to see where Bumble goes yet. They’re not done growing because Whitney is a driving force behind it. Other than Bumble, Whitney has had her hands full. She recently got married to Michael Herd in a lavish ceremony. Seeing the CEO of Bumble find love is a great sign for all Bumble users. Someone who believes in them found love herself.
