SWIPE RIGHT ON WOMEN MAKING IT IN TECH
Today, I was reading about Whitney Wolfe Herd (WWH) who will be the youngest ever woman to take a company public next week.
She is ex Tinder and the founder of Bumble, the dating app start up where women message first.
Match Group actually owns most of the popular dating brands, including Tinder, Hinge, OKCupid etc. but WWH is taking Bumble public rather than selling to them.
It's truly a unique time to be launching a dating app with Covid having increased feelings of loneliness and people looking for more ways to connect.
And, of course, February is all about finding your Valentine (apparently) so kudos for timing!
Bumble is seeking to raise more than $1 billion upon debut.
One to watch!
