Whitney Wolfe Insists that Match is legally on the Wrong

     Bumble, the latest dating site to be introduced in the industry is in some dubious battle with Match Group, Tinder’s parent company. Initially, Match Group filed a lawsuit against Bumble. The claims indicated copyright infringement in business. However, Whitney Wolfe, the head cheerleader of the company, stated in the claims that Match Group was playing a rough game because of several failed buyout attempts.

When Match Group filed the lawsuit, Whitney of Bumble counter reacted by filing a lawsuit as well. From Whitney’s statement it is clear that initially in Match’s buyout attempt, Bumble’s business operations were interfered with. What is more, Bumble is making a compensation demand of $400 million in damages.

Allegedly, Match Group robbed Bumble of its trading secrets, and the business has termed it as fraudulent behavior. Of course, according to Whitney and her management, this hurt her business in many ways including interfering with its chances of trading the equity investment. Further into the matter, Whitney Wolfe described the situation as having chilled the market for Bumble’s future investment with prospective businesses.

Moreover, Bumble has stated that Match Group took advantage of its position as the possible predecessor to collect vital business information for competition. Even worse, Match Group offered Bumble $450 million in June 2017. That marked the beginning of all wrangles as Bumble termed the offer as ‘’lowball’’. Furthermore, it did not even consider it or presented a counteroffer.

Early this year, the two companies initiated a discussion based on the potential acquisition of Bumble. Many sources have since reported that the infringement lawsuit has taken Bumble by surprise. On the other hand, Whitney Wolfe has stood her ground and insisted that the lawsuit against Bumble is not based on facts. She terms it as just a wrongful disparage that will cost businesses time, money and actual possible partnerships.

Whitney Wolfe is an exemplary business professional with a particular knack for entrepreneurship. She grew up in Utah and joined Southern Methodist University for sales and business administration. Of course, in her academic year, she specialized in different units as well. While in college, Wolfe delved into the business of selling tote bags. She used that opportunity to rub shoulders with celebrity entrepreneurs and later found her way into the world of businesses and entrepreneurship. That is how she was poached to work for Tinder as a senior executive. After quitting, she founded Bumble.

Whitney Wolfe Highly Growth-Oriented Women Leader and Entrepreneur

     Whitney Wolfe is a familiar name in the business of dating and is the founder of the famous dating app named Bumble. It is one of the top five dating apps in the market currently and is pushing itself up the rank at a rapid pace. More and more people are joining Bumble, and the number of members it has is expected to cross significantly in the next couple of years. Whitney Wolfe is also the co-founder of another popular dating app named Tinder, which is currently the top dating app in the world with over fifty million members. Whitney Wolfe has gained substantial experience in the world of dating business, and she has ensured that she puts all her experience and expertise into designing and developing Bumble to meet the requirements of the modern users today.

Whitney Wolfe knows that the network of Bumble has been expanding at a consistent pace, and to keep the members engaged, the company has to keep evolving. One of the ways that Whitney Wolfe thought that the company would be able to provide much better services to the end users is by adding new features to the existing dating app Bumble. It is what she did with the introduction of Bumble Bizz, which is one of the most beautiful professional networking platforms on the market today. It is similar to the dating app Bumble but has a more professional tone to it. The best part is that Bumble Bizz is boxed inside Bumble app only, but the only difference is that it would allow the members to add their skills, resume, and work examples as well.

Many of the tech analysts believe that Bumble Bizz is all geared up to collide head-on with Linkedin. Linkedin is the biggest and the most popular professional networking platform, but with the kind of welcome Bumble Bizz has received, it is not long before Bumble Bizz starts to rub off some of the edges with Linkedin. The fact that Bumble Bizz continues to have the same approach as the Bumble dating app and only allows the women to make the first move to contact is also highly appreciated in the professional field. The company doesn’t want that people who are looking for dates start to use Bumble Bizz for dating, and hence the feature of only allowing women to make the first move would stay. It is expected that in future Bumble Bizz would evolve further and have many new and exciting features.
