Whitney Wolfe is conquering the dating app world, and it appears that she has a front row seat ok corporate America even though she is just getting started. Vanity Fair has highlighted her role as a woman in business, and it is clear that Whitney Wolfe has big plans for the future.

At one time there was an offer on the table from Match for Bumble. This was the company that Whitney Wolfe took the time to create and expand. In the initial stages people may have wondered if Whitney Wolfe could have competed successfully with other dating apps that were ran by older white men. In a society where male culture is dominant, Whitney knew that she was up for a serious challenge. She also knew that there would be a possible bully on the horizon since she had already co-created and left Tinder, one of the more popular dating apps for Generation Z.
What Whitney knew was that there would be a lot of opposition coming her way, but she also believes that there would be many opportunities for growth. This is why she continued to work and build Bumble to be more than just a dating app. She wanted it to be the social environmental app that was ran by a woman. She would even take on the role of hiring more women inside of her business structure to give women a greater push when it came to technology. Wolfe has continued to evolve as a business leader, and this has made her better when it comes to creating connections for other women to see a future in technology and leadership roles inside corporate business structures.
She has created a company that has a billion dollar valuation as a result of all the hard work that she has put into creating Bumble Bizz,Bumble BFF and Bumble Dating.
