Bumble Has Become a Household Name in the Dating App Scene under the Guidance of Whitney Wolfe

With just a simple swipe, some users of Bumble, a leading dating app by Whitney Wolfe Herd, are lucky enough to establish a relationship that ends up in marriage, make a new friend, or find a lucrative job opportunity. However, Wolfe may be the most fortunate of all – the $1 billion-valued app has earned its 29-year old creator a $230 million fortune. Although Whitney Wolfe didn’t appear in 2018’s Forbes list of Richest Self Made Women in America, Forbes expects her to join the rank with a short duration, provided Bumble will continue enjoying its rapid growth.

The biggest competitor of Bumble is Tinder, created back in 2002 as a “swiping” dating app that leverages the location of a customer to identify matches. Whitney Wolfe actually played an instrumental role in developing what is now her rival. Whitley Wolfe also cofounded Tinder and walked out of the company in 2014 citing sexual harassment by Justin Mateen, her co-founder and ex-boyfriend. Visit on her twitter for more latest updates.


She initially did not intend to go back to the online dating scene. Instead, she wanted to create an online social space that focused on the needs of women. She discussed the concept with Andrev Andreev, an established Russian billionaire and brains behind dating app Badoo, who didn’t seem impressed by the idea but did love the passion and energy that Wolfe exuded. Andreev encouraged Wolfe to stick to dating apps since she had already become an expert in the area. The two entrepreneurs met in London several times before Wolfe Herd unveiled the idea for Bumble.

Andreev decided to invest an initial $10 million for about 79 percent of the firm and allow Whitney Wolfe oversee software and systems unit of Badoo. Wolfe, who got approximately 20 percent of the company, brought her unparalleled marketing experience and women-first idea. Bumble was officially launched in December 2014, and it had 100,000 downloads in its first month.

Bumble unveiled an app called BFF in 2016. BFF helps women make new friends rather than dates. The next year, it launched yet another innovative app known as Bizz that helps women meet other women for career networking purposes. Just four years since its inception and with over 35 million users, Bumble is indisputably the fastest rising dating app in America.

Adam Milstein Love for the Jewish People

Adam Milstein and Gila are the founders of the Adam and Gila Milstein Family Foundation, MFF. They both operate this foundation alongside other activities. The ultimate goal of MFF was to provide support to various other pro-Israel organizations. Adam Milstein was born of Hillel and Eva in Haifa. The third biggest city in Israel. At his mid-60s. Adam Milstein moved into the United States of America accompanied by his family to advance his education. He joined the USC, University of Southern California and pursued Masters in Entrepreneurship. After his training, he joined the real estate industry where he attained incredible success. From then, Milstein had dedicated himself to many philanthropic causes. Most of his charitable activities are aimed at support the State of Israel and the Jewish community at large. This mission was very successful and productive in that he and his lovely wife had tremendous love and passion towards Israel and the Jews.

Among the major strategies that Adam Milstein has implemented to empower and safeguard the greater Jewish America community is through ensuring that the Judaism education is available and highly accessible to all the Jewish Americans. In the recent past, Milstein got acquainted with some research study that was carried out by the Pew Research Center showing that a majority of the young Jewish people residing in the United States never had a strong connection to their native land of Israel. This research also revealed that the Jewish Americans were unable to tackle some fundamental questions regarding the State of Israel.

This was a significant issue that triggered him to do something towards solving this issue. He decided to make a change. Milstein and Gila had been actively offering donations to more than 200 pro-Israel organizations. They only supported the organizations that proven beyond no reasonable doubts that they are set to make a meaningful impact towards upgrading the Jewish people and the State of Israel. They used the Adam and Gila Milstein Foundation to drive their mission and offer funds donations to these organizations. A majority of these organizations are concerned about enlightening and education the Israel upcoming and future generations about their native land Israel and Judaism. They also ventured into promoting interest and alliance between Israelis and Americans.

Is Shervin Pishevar A Psychic? Perhaps – We’ll Never Know

If people could reliably – even halfway-reliably – predict things, they could quite literally make livings through gambling; technically, it couldn’t even be called gambling. While some people are professional gamblers in somewhat-predictable areas of betting like sports, most people’s abilities for predicting things are horrible.

Let’s look at one of Silicon Valley’s top investor’s predictions and statements about the economy, financial instruments, and business at large. All of them weren’t correct – the man isn’t a psychic – though a fair amount of them was, in fact, on point.

The man’s name is Shervin Pishevar

First-generation Iranian immigrant Shervin Pishevar unleashed a level-headed slew of tweets in the first week of February 2018. As we approach the six-month anniversary of Mr. Pishevar’s memorable tweetstorm, let’s look back at some of the things he asserted as fact – things that can’t reliably be measured, therefore making predictions inherently impossible – and other market events he quantified and got correct – Shervin Pishevar just might be Ms. Cleo in disguise.

Bitcoin fell even further from its December 2018 peak

On February 6, Shervin Pishevar declared that Bitcoin – the world’s first cryptocurrency was trading for roughly $7,900 on February 6, 2018 – would drop to anywhere between $2,000 and $5,000 in terms of USD per bitcoin. Thus far, the cryptocurrency has, in fact, reached a low price of roughly $5,700 this year – to be precise, the digital currency dropped to that low on June 24, 2018.

Though it never reached a true $5,000 US Dollar per bitcoin mark, Shervin Pishevar’s prediction got pretty close.

Gold would get more expensive, he said

The price of gold was between $1,330 and $1,320 per ounce throughout February 6. Although 2018 has yet to close as of July 31, 2018 – there are, in fact, five more months left in the year – the precious metal is currently trading about $100 less today than it was in the first week of February.

You win some, you lose some – then again, Shervin Pishevar didn’t specify a time horizon, making it not possible to make a judgment on his tweet’s accuracy yet.
