Whitney Wolfe in the last about two years has been the talk of the town in the New York City. This is because of her well thought of innovation; a unique female dating app. This is a joint venture with Andrey Andreev, founder of Badoo. The App is referred to as Bumble whose space they call the Hive. It has been art to provide a month-long installment space for fans, dates and basically anyone willing to hang around.
The décor at the Hive is a blend of yellow and black flavors in an awesome spiral pattern. It accommodates all including those not actually looking for dates since it’s a brand people are willing to be affiliated with. Whitney Wolfe has been lucky that her invention took off well. In fact, after a few days of opening, the space had been scheduled to hold a Mentoring & Mingle session by Forbes, Style session by Drybar while Whitney Wolfe would host the Skimm founders and executives.
Bumble App allows women to be in control. Whitney wanted an app that would break the bridge of women being seen as desperate for making the first move. Female participants are the only ones the site allows to initiate interest or conversation for straight people. In an era where social media is the core of everything, it’s slowly taking shape. The app has become popular with over 200,000 messages sent daily and growing at 15% weekly. Bumble is set for expansion with the opening of such spaces in other locations. Mark you, it has already launched the Bumble BFF for people looking for friendship.
