The Business Model of Bumble
Bumble, headquartered in Austin, Texas, is a networking app that enables users to build meaningful relationships with one another. These can be significant romantic relationships, friendships, or even professional ties. Bumble users can sign up using their phone number or Facebook profile and can seek for love matches or buddies in "BFF mode." The program proposes other profiles based on the user's location, which might be liked. When two profiles match, a match is created. Only female users can initiate contact with matched male users in heterosexual matches, however both users can initiate contact in same-sex matches.
