Learn how Bumble CEO became a billionaire at Wall Street

The creator of the successful dating app has become a role model for women who want to become entrepreneurs, check out her story!

Whitney Wolfe Herd is a very succesful woman. She has become a very succesfull CEO of popular dating app Bumble and all of this at the age of 31. Her most recent milestone was back in February when Bumble became a publicly traded company on NASDAQ. Something that is no easy at all, especially when you are a young woman. 

With her Wall Street debut,  the 31-year-old, who has a 11.6% stake in the company,  became both a billionaire and the youngest female CEO to take a major U.S. company public. And something that also represents her feminist power is that the dating app is the only one where women have to always take the first step, having 24 hours to contact their match before they disappear. 

When becoming a billionaire at Wall Street, Wolfe wrote a very touching tweet, in where she was grateful to all the women that took the first step, saying that the dating app success wouldn't have been possible without their willingness to be open and direct about their desires:

"Today, @Bumble becomes a public company, this is only possible thanks to the more than 1.7 billion first moves made by brave women on our app — and the pioneering women who paved the way for us in the business world. To everyone who made today possible: Thank you. #BumbleIPO"

What makes her hard work even more special and respectable is the fact that she's  also a mother of her 1-year-old son, Bobby Lee "Bo" Herd II. Leaving as an example that working moms can really achieve all of their dreams no matter how hard they may seem at the beginning. Her baby was along with her when she pressed the button at one of the most important moments of her life and career.
