How Whitney Wolfe Controls the Dating App Market

There are some entrepreneurs that start their careers very early in their lives. This is the case of the founder and CEO of Bumble, one of the biggest dating applications in the world. Whitney Wolfe, as she is called, is also releasing BumbleBFF and BumbleBizz.

If you have never heard of Bumble, you are either in a stable relationship, or you don’t have lots of contact with teenagers.

Bumble is one of the biggest dating applications in the world, and it has a very different catch from the other competitors in the industry. Bumble has another approach. In this dating app, ladies are always the ones who contact the boys, and not the contrary. This, at first, was the idea behind Whitney Wolfe’s decision to create Bumble, but it has so much more.

Bumble has received critical acclaim, and the catch of having the girls making the first contact has really stood out the app above the competition. After all, there are hundreds of dating apps in the Apple Store and for Android, but both of Whitney Wolfe’s creations have stood up above all other applications.

After Bumble’s release, she also founded BumbleBFF for making friends and BumbleBizz for finding jobs.

These simple concepts have rewarded Whitney Wolfe with high praises and millions of dollars for years.

Being the American entrepreneur and successful innovator that she is, she has even been nominated among the 30 most important women under 30 in Tech, in the year of 2014. She is also considered one of the most influential women in the dating applications market, as she has changed the industry forever. At the same time, in 2017, Whitney Wolfe was also nominated in Forbes’ list, 30 Under 30, a list that highlights the deeds of thirty people in many industries who have achieved high success before their age of 30.

Bumble nowadays has more than 10 million users, and it is one of the most used applications for cellphones in the world. It has many downloads, surpassing other dating apps like “Hot or Not” by a significant margin. It is a free application that has strikingly high-scores.

Bumble, her creation that was launched in 2014, is not alone. Whitney Wolfe has also initiated BumbleBFF, which can be used to find friends and not romantic partners, while there is also BumbleBIZZ, which is a different take on the Bumble application. BumbleBizz can be used to find jobs and opportunities regarding careers.

It is safe to say that Whitney Wolfe has changed this industry forever.
