Online dating has sprouted in the recent years due to the development of the internet. Many people knew little about the industry until Whitney Wolfe launched Bumble in 2014. The online dating App has grown over the years from the original two employees to over 30 employees globally.
The company is headquartered in Austin, Texas and has continued to expand on client base thus realizing over 11 million downloads. Whitney Wolfe has also retaliated that the application is diverting to other business entities. The launch of BumbleBizz has opened up other career opportunities for people in different business fields. Due to her touching story, she was invited to Austin’s SXSW Interactive Festival to share the experience of a successful business. At the event that was held March this year, she attributes the success of Bumble to her early team that has held the company together.
She goes on to attribute the success of many start-up businesses to the faithfulness and loyalty of founding employees. The employees share with you a vision of a prosperous and successful company though you have little to offer them. Protecting a company culture is a major milestone towards uniting and setting goals to success. Whitney Wolfe advises people to focus on culture when hiring staff because every successful company requires loyal and passionate employees.
