Bumble, a dating site created by Whitney Wolfe, has been declared to have rejected a buyout offer of $450 million. Bumble has not disclosed which company had made the offer, or even whether the rumor is true. However, there is a high possibility that the offer was made by Match Group as it owns several other dating applications such as Tinder, OKCupid, and also Match.com. Bumble is a site that is continuously growing and also gaining a lot of profit. This is because it is gaining an approximate of 50,000 users per day. The company’s team has moved to Austin, Texas, with 40 working personnel. The company has a total of 70 employees based in Germany, Australia, and London. They have further plans of opening an office in New York, probably by the next year.
Bumble is doing very well on its own, making it a successfully independent foundation. Whitney Wolfe claims that the application still has a long way to go. The company has stated that it will soon be releasing an application redesign. It will allow the users to shift between Bumble networking Bizz, Bumble BFF, and Bumble for dating. It is not the greatest dating application in the market but holds a top position as the fastest growing dating app.
According to Apptopia, Bumble comes in second place regarding revenue in the category of lifestyle on both Apple’s Application Store and Google Play. Tinder may be ahead of Bumble from an overall analysis, but Bumble is growing progressively. Whitney Wolfe determined to expand her team to the United States of America to undertake more marketing strategies, sales, and engineering initiatives.
