When Whitney Wolfe has gotten started on her app, she has originally wanted to build a social network for women. However, when she has met a businessman by the name of Andrey Andreev, it has turned out to be a huge influence in the direction she was going in. For one thing, it was Andrey who has convinced her to create a dating app of her own.
Whitney Wolfe has described Merci to him. When she was done, Andrey has told her that it would make a great women first dating app. Then Whitney has thought about and has decided that she can move forward with this plan.
Once they have come to an agreement, Andrey has given her the funding that was necessary to get the app off the ground. There was the development process of course. Then finally, it was released to the public. Women were able to look at the app and learn about the intention behind it. Once they have seen what it does, they have decided that it was an app worth joining. Of course the men were able to join the dating service as well. The difference was noticeable right from the start.

One thing that women have noticed is that their inbox was not flooded. Perhaps the thing they noticed about it was the difference it made to them. They did not have to look through their messages only to deal with what they see as junk mail. This has given them the room to look for people they might be interested in. Bumble did however match them to someone. When they were matched, the women had 24 hours to message the man or else he will disappear and be replaced with another match. This has made a huge difference for both men and women.

When I founded @Bumble, I didn't know what I was supposed to do. Just what I wanted to fix: the antiquated rules of dating. Thanks, @FitzTepper, for the story. > Whitney Wolfe Herd doesn’t care what she’s supposed to do https://t.co/hXeLSv0LdZ via @techcrunch
