Whitney Wolfe, Paving the Way for Women Entrepreneurs
Whitney Wolfe is the founder of Bumble, the only dating app where women make the first move, and co-founder of the dating app Tinder. The daughter of property developer Michael Wolfe was born in Salt Lake City, Utah in the year 1989. She attended Southern Methodist University and focused her education in International Studies. In her time she founded Bumble, the dating app gave women more power than most other dating websites. The twenty-nine-year-old married the entrepreneur Michael Herd in Italy.
In an interview with Vanity Fair at their second annual Founders Fair Summit, the founder of Bumble shared her thoughts about modern women in society. She states that traditionally it is believed that power resides with men and that it is the norm for women to act dis-empowered. She, however, strongly disagrees with this ideology and claimed that the societal conditioning of thought to believe that there only exists a single seat at the power table to be a big lie.
Whitney Wolfe is thrilled by all the women going out of their means to help her create more of these seats at the power table. The co-founder of Tinder shares her fair share of the obstacles faced by women in the modern business and development world. She left Tinder to start her own matchmaking company four years ago. Since then she and her company have been dragged into several lawsuits aimed at making her success path less smooth. She, however, remains hopeful that more good will come.
Whitney Wolfe told Vogue magazine that Bumble bases on the ideology of changing the dating industry. In 2016 this twenty million subscribed app company launched the Bumble BFF, a front for making platonic friends from all over the world. Furthermore, the dating app is bringing women to professional networking with the launch of Bumble Bizz late last year. Empowering women comes naturally to the entrepreneur. This is particularly so because of her long-term experience as a woman in dominant elective positions. The idea of Bumble Bizz was in play long before it got officiated and the heads of the management of the app saw it wise to give the general public what they wanted. The renowned businesswoman claimed to have founded Bumble to simplify the dynamics involved in the interactions between men and women. She is proud, so far, her ideologies and wishful thinking are becoming a reality.
