Whitney Wolfe is an entrepreneur magnate born and currently living in the United States. She is the owner of Bumble as well as Tinder dating mobile application.

Bumble BFF is one of the most popular app for dating. Whitney Wolfe featured on Business Insider’s thirty most prominent women fewer than 30 in the tech industry in 2014. She also emerged among women in the technology list by Elle. Bumble employs pictures from users and ask them to choose what they like, and get a match if their interest matches. Unlike other dating apps, Bumble only allows women to send the initial message. The move is to change the online dating landscape for females to give women full control the dating experience.

Bumble eliminate the perception of a “desperate woman” by making her advances mandatory rather than premeditative. Matches, however, expire within twenty-four hours giving women an incentive to make a move before they regret.

The new Bumble app is a popular female-led mobile application for dating. Bumble announced the opening of a new location in an attractive space in New York City. The name of the new space is Hive as a month-long installment targeted at date space for Bumble fans or anybody else to hang around and indulge in the Bumble brand. Hive has Bumble’s signature tastes. The physical space marks the dating startups debut to formalize the Bumble’s fan base. Although some dating apps are still a taboo in the society, Whitney Wolfe, the app developer, and Bumble owner contends that Bumble brand currently goes beyond dating to something cherished by people including those unaware of the brand’s intricacies.

Bumble’s target of the community further matches the startup’s goal to ultimately grow BumbleBIZZ as Bumble’s effort to help its fans with social and expert networking, and also retain loyalists not necessarily interested in dating. Although Hive will open its doors for a couple of the course of the week, it will also hold events targeted at female entrepreneurs, relationships, and the likes. Bumble owner Whitney Wolfe will, for instance, welcome a panel including theSkimm founder, Drybar.
