Normally, most college graduates are still looking for internships or struggling to find an entry level position. However, Whitney Wolfe has separated herself from other Millennials. Still in her 20s, Whitney Wolfe has managed to make a name for herself as the CEO of Bumble. Using her experience working for Hatch Labs, the creators of Tinder, Wolfe has created a dating app with an entirely new focus. The key feature of Bumble, women making the first move, has set a new standard for online dating.
Setting Out On Her Own
The decision to start your own company is always a dangerous one, but this is exactly what Whitney Wolfe has done with Bumble. There are plenty of people who have said the online dating world is in need of change. There are simply far too many examples of sexual harassment and yet nobody has done anything about it. As a victim of sexual harassment herself, Wolfe has made sure that Bumble is completely free of this. Given that there were fewer than 105 cases of sexual harassment reported on Bumble in 2015 it seems as if she was successful.
Where Whitney Wolfe Is Today
Whitney Wolfe continues to amaze people as the CEO of Bumble. The app is already used by millions of people and there are hundreds of millions of matches. However, what really separates this app from countless others is the dedication to making this app about something more than profits. She has a specific interest in making the world around her a better place. For this reason Whitney Wolfe has created Bumble. The internet can bring out the worst in us, but things can change if we try to change them. This is just one step towards making things better.
