Whitney Wolfe, The American Entrepreneur
Various women have faced different challenges in online dating. For example, unsolicited pictures, as well as inappropriate comments to women who seek long-term relationships are widespread. In the course of such interactions which occur on online platforms, many women got annoyed and discouraged from using dating apps.
As a matter of fact, it isn’t a surprise to find that women feel safer to meet people in person rather than online. Most of the women find the profiles on the dating apps as misleading. A great challenge to the dating app creators is how to create a place where ladies feel safe while finding perfect matches as well as being in a position to prevent sexual harassment.
Whitney Wolfe is passionate about preventing the plight of women in the dating scene such as online bullying and harassment of all kinds. She created a dating app that considers women first in reducing online-harassment. Whitney partnered with Andrey Andreev in launching the Austine-based dating app referred to as Bumble.
Bumble works in a way that both men and women can express interest by tapping a profile photo they like. The app then recognizes a connection given that both parties liked each other’s profiles the first. The only difference is that women alone are allowed to make the initial contact after they both agree they are interested in one another.
Whitney Wolfe, the American entrepreneur, is the founder and the Chief Executive Officer of Bumble. Besides, Whitney Wolfe is the co-founder of Tinder, a dating app. According to monthly user base report, Tinder and Bumble were the first and fourth most popular dating apps.
The daughter of the property developer Michael and housewife Kelly, Whitney Wolfe was born in Salt Lake City, Utah and attended South Methodist University. Whitney began business as early as when she was 19. Her business involved selling bamboo tote bags that benefited areas affected by the BP oil spill.
Wolfe joined Hatch Labs when she was 22. While serving in Hatch, Wolfe got involved with the startup Cardiff. Even though they abandoned the project later, Wolfe founded the dating app Tinder together with Sean Rad.
