Whitney Wolfe Herd is cofounder and CEO of Bumble Inc., which operates two online dating apps: Bumble and Badoo. Wolfe Herd first founded Bumble, the dating app on which women make the first move, with Russian billionaire Andrey Andreev in 2014. Andreev, who founded Badoo in 2004, sold his stake in both apps to private equity firm Blackstone in November 2019. Wolfe Herd, who owns a 21% stake in Bumble, became the youngest self-made woman billionaire after it went public in February 2021.
Together, Bumble and Badoo operate in 150 countries with 2.8 million paying users as of March 2021. At the 2021 Forbes Under 30 Summit, Wolfe discussed how Bumble adapted during the pandemic.
