Whitney Wolfe, Founder & CEO Bumble

Girlboss Radio with Sophia Amoruso - May 26, 2016 - 42:23

Whitney Wolfe always makes the first move in her life. The Founder and CEO of Bumble created a dating app that turns social norms on its head where the woman must initiate the conversation. If she doesn't send a message in the next 24 hours, the connection disappears forever. Whitney's also a co-Founder of Tinder and served as their Vice President of Marketing. She left the job after filing a heavily reported sexual harassment lawsuit against the company, which she’s since settled. On the episode Sophia and Whitney discuss making female friends in the 21st century, the detrimental effects of bullying, and what's next for Bumble.
