Whitney Wolfe, a Southern Methodist University graduate, is CEO of Bumble. Wolfe has created a very interesting company that provides a wide spectrum of platforms for people are interested in networking, making friends and dating.
The 28 yr old Wolfe has proven herself to be a multi-faceted business guru that has many avenues for people to consider if they are trying to explore something new social media that is not Facebook.
Individuals waste hours of their time on Facebook looking at what other people have posted. They find themselves in a place where they are not productive at all. They’re not getting anything done while they are online. What Whitney Wolfe wanted to do with Bumble was create the type of avenue that would allow people to get things done while they have fun socializing. She wanted to create Bumble Bizz because she wanted people to have a chance to have fun while they were online.
Whitney Wolfe is in a place where she is creating more opportunities for people to network, and this is a good thing. It proves that women that are in positions of power have the ability to help others gain positions of power.
Bumble Bizz is not an app platform that is meant strictly for women, but it definitely gives women a better perspective of what they can do if they put their minds to it. She has created a company that has been able to evolve out into different areas of social media. Adding this business aspect to it gives more women a chance to explore their own business ideals.
Sometimes it just takes someone with like mindsets to help you get the confidence that you need to make moves in terms of your own small business. This is what Whitney realized when she was creating Bumble Bizz. She pulled women that had worked and roled as executive recruiters. She put women in place that knew about dating apps when she initially created Bumble.
Whitney Wolfe knew that the best way to be successful would big to create a platform where other women were able to boost their opinions. This is why more than 50% of her company is ran by women. She has a headquarters in Texas, but she also has an office outside of the United States where women are primarily in charge there as well. Bumble Bizz is serious competition for LinkedIn.
