Whitney Wolfe has given a lot of time to engaging in a lot of changes to the Bumble app that she originally created. What Wolfe understands better than any other developer right now is that flexibility is vital. She could have chosen a path where she did not venture outside of her comfort zone. It appears, however, that Whitney Wolfe is not about settling. People recognized this early when they saw her depart from Tinder.
She co-founded one of the most popular apps on the planet for the young Millennial dating generation. She did not get the credit that she deserved, but this did not deter Whitney Wolfe. She filed a sexual harassment lawsuit and became part of a bigger movement that involved the empowerment of women. This was the #me-too movement, and it is proof that Whitney will is one of the women that is going to be a pioneer when it comes to changing leadership roles for women in app technology.

The good thing about Whitney Wolfe is her age. She is a young woman under 30 that has a great amount of ambition. She got married recently and her company was valued at a billion dollars. Some people may say that she has accomplished more than enough to write her own autobiography already. For Wolfe, however, this is just the beginning.
As this Salt Lake City native continues to grind her gears on new ways to expand Bumble she is being embraced by different communities beyond single men and women. There are Bumble users that are looking for friends that are excited about Bumble BFF. There are Bumble users that are connecting with business partners on small business ventures through Bumble Bizz. This has easily become the type of app environment that can cater to a wide range of possibilities.
All this is possible because CEO of Bumble was able to look beyond where she was and envision what she would like Bumble to become. She could have taken on the accolades and relaxed as her app surpassed Tinder as the popular dating app, but she didn’t.
