Whitney Wolfe is no ordinary lady. She has made sure that following her dreams was her number one priority. And as a result of having that ‘never say die’ attitude as far as her pursuit of her goals were concerned, she managed to achieve a lot in her early life. Before becoming the revered Bumble CEO, Whitney Wolfe attended Southern Methodist University where she took a major in international studies.
And that is where she began testing waters in the world of entrepreneurship dating. Bumble is also looking to launch BumbleBFF as well as BumbleBIZZ – which are new verticals meant to help users find friends if dating isn’t their primary goal. To date, Bumble has an estimated value of about $500 million. And the cost keeps on increasing, thanks to the team’s sheer dedication as far as convenience and incredible user experience is concerned.
Apart from being one of the world’s wealthiest matchmakers, Whitney Wolfe has also been known for having a soft spot for charity. During the infamous BP oil spill, the nineteen-year-old Whitney Wolfe made sure that she was selling bamboo tote bags and using the proceedings to help the affected people. She partnered with Patrick Aufdenkamp (a celebrity stylist) and begun the “Help Us Project.”
Her brilliance and looks aside, Whitney Wolfe was again making the headlines and this time because the queen of hitching people up had finally been hitched. She made headlines when video clips of her supposedly private wedding were leaked by close friends and family as they couldn’t keep calm as it was Whitney’s wedding, as some of them joked later.
The grand wedding took place in Positano, Italy. And judging from the photos that later surfaced, it was no doubt one of the most elegant weddings of that year. Whitney was married to her beau of four years whom she met back in 2013. Michael Herd, who is the heir to a restaurant, oil, and gas business empire, was the lucky man who walked down the aisle with the beauty.
If the rumors doing rounds in the gossip grind mill are anything to go by, Michael proposed to her after a horse ride in June of 2015, a proposal that was cordially accepted. At this point, all we can do is wish the new Mrs. Herd nothing but happiness which she deserves especially after helping millions of people find their soulmates through the practical, easy-to-use Bumble App.
