Many people feel that the tech industry is not for the women and Whitney Wolfe Herd has single-handedly shown that it is not true. The CEO of the successful dating app Bumble said that she had a lot of doubters when she launched her app in 2014 with her small team. Most of the people thought she was making a mistake by creating a dating app dedicated primarily to women and told her that it wouldn’t work. But, she used her own dating experience and knew that she is not alone in the way women are treated in the dating industry. She felt insecure making the first move in other dating apps and felt that something should be done about it. Whitney Wolfe Herd created Bumble that allowed only the women to respond to messages first and will enable them to make the first move rather than the men.
Whitney Wolfe Herd worked with a small team of experienced and dedicated people who believed in her vision. She is an excellent leader and has led her team to many successes in the past years. The dating app currently has 33 million registered users, and a large percentage of the users spend around 100 minutes on the app daily. It is due to her passionate team members that she has been successful and helps run her company seamlessly. She offers excellent perks to the employees of the company, and even the interns are treated as employees of the company. The company recently moved from a small office to its uniquely designed head office in North Lamar Boulevard. The new office is developed by JEI Design Inc and offers a female-friendly work environment. The company aims to surpass all of their past records and reach a profit of $150 million by the end of 2018. With the company adding about 50,000 new users on a daily basis, the fiat is not very tough to achieve.
Whitney Wolfe Herd has not just been successful in business, but she has also been successful in her relationships. She recently married her boyfriend, Michael Herd in an intimate ceremony in Italy. She met her now husband back in 2013 when they were introduced by a mutual friend. Getting married is not the only achievements she has achieved in 2017. She also launched two other apps under her Bumble umbrella, Bumble BFF and Bumble Bizz that are consistently growing with its unique features that others were too afraid to use.
