Whitney Wolfe Is Expanding Bumble With BumbleBIZZ And BumbleBFF
The popular female-led dating app Bumble is planning to open a physical location for people who use the app to meet up, hang out, or just visit with friends. This is the first step in the expansion of the Bumble brand and will continue with BumbleBIZZ, a social networking site for professionals not necessarily looking for dates.
The space is open during the week for Bumble users to meet up, but on the weekends it focuses on seminars and female empowerment meetings. Some keynote brands that will be hosting these seminars are Drybar and Forbes with a mentorship program. The BumbleBFF is also being launched. This app will help its users find friends with common interests. It will offer a coffee bar and a merchandise corner. All merchandise sales will go to charity, and Bumble founder Whitney Wolfe is very excited about this new chapter.
