Bumble has reached a new level, by opening up a real place where active users can communicate with each other. In addition, the fashion style institution will let people “from the outside” who are aimed at expanding their social circle or just looking for a date for the evening. The new bar was called The Hive. In fact, the institution turned out quite bright and comfortable dating app, with great potential. It’s not so much a bar for dating as it is a place where you can communicate with really interesting people and get out of your comfort zone.
But the story of Bumble wasn’t always honey sweet. The conception of Wolfe’s brand actually began with an unpleasant event. Then, Whitney Wolfe , was solely known as a co-founder of the popular dating service, Tinder. She left Tinder after having sued her former work associate, also a co founder popular app. She accused him of sexual harassment at the work place. That was when Wolf left Tinder with the idea of creating a new, more secure dating app.
Whitney Wolfe’s Bumble disproves the stereotype that a man should always take the first step. Here the initiative of communication is in the hands of the girl. The project also allows you to get rid of unwanted and intrusive communication with young people in the network. Wolf began to think About the new idea of a startup social network for young girls, focused on positivity. That’s when Andrew Andreev contacted Badoo. The two guys met around August 2014, and realizing that both had the same vision of where online dating could go further, a partnership was formed. Wolfe then began to assemble the team, including convincing two other former employees of Tinder, Sarah Meek (formerly vice president of design at Tinder) and Chris Gulchinsky (co-founder / CCO in Tinder) to become a consultant.
Andreev, the Russian founder of the European dating anomaly Badoo, is an investor in the dating site for women, Bumble. However, now previously unreported information about the partnership of Whitney Wolfe and Andrew Andreev, including that Andreev invested through Badoo Trading Ltd, the UK-registered operator Badoo, and that the multi-billion dollar company is in fact the owner of the majority of Bumble, has become accessible. Badoo currently has a whopping 79 percent stake in Bumble, which makes Andreev the majority owner. As expected, in the second place is the founder of Bumble herself, Whitney Wolfe with a share of 20%. Employees of ex-Tinder, Mick and Gulchinsky, make up the remaining 1%.
