According to Forbes, they estimate that Bumble’s revenue will exceed $100 million by the end of the year. These returns have never been achieved by the dating app. Currently, Bumble enjoys over 22 million subscribers and 85% of the users are women. Forbes estimate that Bumble’s value is at $1 billion. Bumble is an application that allows women to date securely by being the first ones to make the audacious move.
Recently, Bumble launched two new applications, namely Bumble BFF and Bumble BIzz. Whitney is looking forward to an impressive market for the new Bumble products. They are projecting massive returns next year as the two products are already showing impressive market numbers. Having wedded Michael Herd this year in Positano Italy, Whitney is believed to have made the first move. This was during a family Christmas vacation for both families in 2013 in Aspen. At the time, Wolfe and Herd didn’t know each other. Whitney took the challenge of the encounter and made the first move. The Bumble app is borne from Whitney’s personal dating experience and according to her, women can make the first move and end up in a successful dating experience.
