Whitney Wolfe is an entrepreneur. She was a co-founder at the dating app tinder from which she later broke away. She is currently receiving all manner of praise for dating app, Bumble, in which she is both founder and CEO. Badoo, a European dating site, owns a majority of bumble shares. Bumble is the first app ever to grant the woman sole authority to initiate the first contact. Bumble has snowballed, since its launch in 2014, and currently competes fiercely with the founder’s former company. At one point in 2016, it was ranked fourth most trending dating app, and grown immensely since then. As of January 2017, bumble has a network of 11 million registered users. Wolfe has had a very successful career being the vice president and co-founder of tinder and now running her own company. She is a force in the entrepreneurial circles, feminists, and tech. Following this, Forbes named among the Forbes’ 30 under 30 for 2017 and Elle featured her in Elle women.
Wolfe was born in Utah, started Wolfe’s first business at 19 where she sold bamboo tote bags. She later started the ‘help us project’ after teaming up with a celebrity stylist. She then traveled to South East Asia to give aid to orphanages. She joined hatch labs at the age of 22. Hatch labs was an incubation center that would later hatch the tinder app. After the fallout, she was approached by the founder of Badoo to start dating company, and Bumble was born. The idea behind the app was to give more power to the women dating site game, where men pick the women while they sit and wait. She explained that while dating, she had to wait for the man to make the first move, even though his profile had pleased her, which she found exhausting.

Wolfe made her mark trying to help people meet their ‘better halves,’ and it comes as no surprise that her wedding had to be one of the glamorous affairs others before hers: one of which people will tell stories about. She tied the knot with Michael Herd, the heir to a Texas oil fortune, in a fairy-tale wedding at the Villa Treville, Positano which located along the coast of Italy. Pictures showing the wedding, the picturesque venue, the beautiful gown, the reception among others followed quickly on social media platforms such as Twitter.
