Dating App Whiz Whitney Wolfe Breaks Ground In A Physical Store

Dating app users no longer have to meet at Starbucks. Users of a virtual app now have a physical location to meet face to face. A recent article covers the plans of Bumble to open a brick and mortar location aimed at creating and building social relationships.

Bumble, the female-centric dating app, is one of the top two lifestyle apps downloaded on iOS, the other app is Tinder. Current CEO and founder of Bumble Whitney Wolfe, also co-founder of Tinder, details another app launched by Bumble, BumbleBFF. This friendship app introduces new friends. Launching soon is Bumblebizz which connects networking individuals in a casual interface. The company goal is to connect people with love and friendship relationships, now business relationships as well. The physical space, known as the Bumble Hive, will start as month long project. Bumble is open to expansion or extension and spreading to different cities.

Whitney Wolfe, a southern Methodist university grad and Salt Lake City native, realized app ambitions while working at a San Francisco startup at the age of 22. Returning from a trip to Thailand, Wolfe began plans on a dating app leading to the birth of Tinder. After co-founding Tinder in 2012, Whitney Wolfe improved on the traditional dating app model by adding photo verification which Whitney Wolfe integrated into Bumble. College campuses were the main testing pool and feedback received was channeled into the creation and launch of Bumble two years ago. Affected by negative dating app experiences and bonding single users over shared “emotionally unhealthy” dating memories, Wolfe developed Bumble as a female version of Tinder, where raunchy male participants can be edited and dating profile photos are verified in anti-catfish efforts. Certain male users sometimes show signs of anger and rudeness when rejected, Wolfe designed Bumble to protect innocent users from “people who act aggressively and erratically.”

Whitney Wolfe has been awarded Business Insider’s 30 most Important Woman Under 30 and also received Forbes 30 Under 30 honors. Bumble’s current user activity at the time of publication exceeds 800 million matches and 10 billion swipes per month. Bumble’s daily user activity exceeds 4 million matches per day and 220 million daily swipes.

In one of Kim’s latest vlogs, she takes viewers to an authentic fire ramen restaurant in Kyoto as well as a few other popular sites.

 

At the start of the video, Kim Dao talks about how much stress she’s been under in recent days. Kim is still trying to work out her travel plans to Australia, South Korea, and Europe. Unfortunately, she says that tensions are extremely high between North and South Korea right now, so that might put a damper in her plans to visit Seoul.

The restaurant owners take Kim Dao’s camera and film the incredible fire ceremony. Watch in amazement as the flames soar heavenward and as the expert chef puts the fiery food in the customers’ bowls.

 

As they are leaving the restaurant, Kim Dao says that the ramen was really tasty and the restaurant’s owners made it easy to take tons of selfies. Both Mao and Kim Dao say they are going to take a train to visit the Fushimi Inari Shrine next. Learn more: https://www.twitch.tv/kimdao

Sheldon Lavin Makes Big News At Global Vision Academy

Sheldon Lavin has been recently honored with the Global Visionary Award, a recognition given to businessmen who have made their unique visions reality on a grand scale. Lavin took the reins of a local Chicago meat processing company and turned them into one of the world’s premier brands in meat products. Lavin’s company is OSI Group, originally a butcher shop that German immigrant Otto Kolschowsky founded over 100 years ago in a small Chicago neighborhood that became the number one supplier to McDonalds restaurants.

Sheldon Lavin is a visionary in finding other processing centers and flagship companies to acquire and partner with, and turning company investments into profitable gains in every market OSI Group has entered into.

Sheldon Lavin’s gift at making good deals and investment made him successful as a banker before he came to Otto & Sons. He had retired from the banking world while still fairly young and was running his own investment consulting firm when he met up with the Kolschowsky sons several years after they became McDonalds’ partners. They sought Lavin’s advice to maximize company profits and build a plan to grow domestically and internationally. Lavin initially only planned to stay as a consultant and avoid the corporate world, but he soon changed his mind when he realized he could do something special with Otto & Sons. He bought out the ownership stake when the Kolschowsky sons retired and then renamed the company OSI Group according to beta.companieshouse.gov.uk.

Lavin has also made sure the company upholds the industry’s highest safety standards and was given the Globe of Honour Award for it by the British Safety Council. But Lavin has also made sure that the company’s environment has stayed hospitable and friendly to all workers, and as a result the company can boast of one of the highest retention rates. Lavin is also on the boards at Ronald McDonald House Charities, Jewish United Fund and Boys and Girls Clubs of Chicago.
