Whitney Wolfe – The Lady With A Vision Of Online Dating
The dating organization named Match Group operates their dating business over the internet. They want to purchase Bumble which is dating the app where women can go after the men they are attracted to.
A patent lawsuit was filed in United States District Court on Friday, in Waco, Texas, by Match Group claiming infringement was made on two of their registered trademark products. This infringement on their patent ownership and creation includes a patent that was designed for Tinder’s app feature, that allows the consumer to swipe-to-connect.
Match alleges in their lawsuit that Sarah Mick and Chris Gluczynski who were once employed by Match Group are thieves who took their patent information that is private and in the proposal stage of development. The feature that was hijacked was an idea that would allow those using the app to reverse their action if they skipped someone by accident.
The founder of Bumble is Whitney Wolfe. The co-founder of Tinder was also Whitney Wolf. In 2014, she filed a lawsuit against Tinder alleging she was harassed sexually and her title as co-founder was taken away from her. According to Whitney Wolfe, the former CMO named Justin Mateen stated that because she was a co-founder who is a female, made Bumble appear as if it were a joke. A settlement was reached for an estimated amount of 1 million dollars, as reported by Forbes.
Whitney Wolfe studied International Studies and graduated from Southern Methodist University with a business degree. While she was in college, at the age of 19, Whitney Wolfe started her own company, where she sold tote bags made from bamboo, to help people who were deeply hurt by the BP oil crisis.
Whitney Wolfe teamed up as a partner with Patrick Aufdenkamp, a stylist who is a celebrity, to begin the non-profit company named Help Us Project. The bags were a success and were acknowledged by the Press after Nicole Richie and other celebrities were photographed wearing them. Whitney Wolfe went to Southeastern Asia after she graduated from the Southern Methodist University to work with orphans.
