About Whitney Wolfe Herd

Whitney Wolfe Herd has reimagined the “misogynistic hurricane” on online dating from a women’s point of view. Leaving her Tinder brainchild in 2014, Whitney worked to develop and launch Bumble, empowering women to #MakeTheFirstMove. With a female-centric staff touted by Inc. in 2018 as a top company for women, Whitney rewrites outdated gender norms and gives women a safe space to use their equal voice. Whitney’s social platforms offer an effusive feed of positive affirmations,providing a breath of fresh air to an often apprehensive online love-seeking audience.
