Following an ugly breakup with cofounder Justin Mateen, Wolfe brought a sexual harassment suit against her former colleagues, accusing them of discrimination and stripping her of her cofounder title—claims Tinder called unfounded.
A post shared by Fast Company fastcompany on Aug 28, at 5: She sunk into a deep depression and eventually fled Los Angeles for Austin, where she thought she might open a juice bar. In August of , Andreev and Wolfe met in Greece to discuss partnering on a female-centric dating app. Three years after that first conversation, Bumble has amassed more than 20 million users, and it continues to add more than 50, new ones per day.
Now Bumble is betting that its matchmaking technology can do more than foster romantic or personal connections. The original dating service will be rebranded as Bumble Honey.

As companies like Uber and Google struggle to overcome public reports of discrimination, a rising cohort of women, from venture capitalists to finance and tech entrepreneurs, are determined to refashion what is acceptable and what is possible in the workplace.
Wolfe, who enlisted student ambassadors to make Tinder a hit on college campuses around the country, did the same with Bumble.

Whitney Casey, CEO and co-founder of Finery , an app that provides styling suggestions for the clothes you already own, worries that many professionals are getting a little too casual with their business casual.
Pair these kicks with a dress or skirt to keep things professional and fresh. Add a third piece.

Tweet The peer-to-peer business model works on the premise of playing matchmaker between individuals with a service to offer and others who could use that service.
