Whitney Wolfe, the founder and CEO of Bumble, had a wedding earlier this month along the Amali Coast of Italy. They held a stunning wedding celebration in the perfect picturesque destination at the Villa Tre Villa in Positano. And with her having the leading date app, it’s only logical that she will have one of the most amazing, fairy tale weddings that many will be so envious over. Even her wedding gown, which is from Oscar de la Renta, was the main talk among celebrity sites for several days, perhaps weeks. And furthermore, her new hubby is a Texas oil heir, Michael Herd. Fellow girl bosses, Amber Venz Box Sophia Amoruso, were in attendance also.
About Whitney Wolfe and Bumble
Originally from Salt Lake City, Utah and as previously mentioned, Whitney Wolfe is founder and CEO of Bumble. She graduated from Southern Methodist University where she majored in International Studies. And she resides in Austin, Texas with her husband.
Bumble was established in 2014, and it is headquartered in Austin, Texas. This company began as a dating app. This company is expanding into other aspects, and it has over 11.5 million registered users. Recently, Bumble has launched the Bumble BFF which is for users who are looking for platonic friends. This company is valued at $500 million, according to Time.
Wolfe’s company is in the works of another launching called Bumble Bizz that is scheduled to start this fall. This aspect of her company is for users who want to make business contacts with no romantic ties. What makes Bumble Bizz distinctive from other business connected sites, like LinkedIn, is the networking connection process. Users will swipe from left to right at potential contacts, similar to the dating app with women reaching out first for business networking purposes only.
Wolfe has shown to be the ultimate standard of the renaissance woman. Not only is she winning in her professional life more and more, but she is winning in her personal life as well. As a matter of fact, she was also recognized in Elle in 2016 as one of the Women in Tech, and in Business Insider in 2014 as one of the 30 Most Important Women Under 30 in Tech.
