Bumble is a female dominated dating site. The site’s headquarters is based out of Austin, Texas and it is one of the world’s leading online dating portals. Bumble has been around for a short time. The site has well over 30 million registered users and most of them are under the age of 35. Bumble’s users are mainly female but there are plenty of guys on the site as well. Whitney Wolfe is Bumble’s founder and CEO.

When Whitney Wolfe started the Bumble site, she wanted to create a place where females are no longer threatened, harassed, marginalized or put down. She wanted a feminist orientated company that catered to women and what they have to offer. First, she set up Bumble to be a website where women made the first move. This was a truly different approach to the world dating. She was tired of men of having to wait around for men to approach them. She also included this action on her site because she wanted women to make the first move in all facets of their lives.

Whitney Wolfe wanted her staff to be predominantly female. She wanted her employees to be powerful women who are in charge. She hired her first three employees and together they helped to establish the foundation for Bumble’s workplace. Wolfe wanted her female employees to know that they could assert themselves in their work environment like men.

She also wanted her employees to know that they can ask for raises and compete for higher positions within the company. Bumble also created a very flexible workplace. Many of the women in this environment are mothers. Since they are, they need to have a working environment that will allow them to work part-time if needed, so they can take care of their kids and their homes. Whitney is very mindful of this. She gives her workers the flexibility they need to be working moms.

Ultimately, as CEO, she wants to create a new workplace culture. She wants a place for women to be taken care of and supported. Bumble is that type of environment. There are a few men who work at Bumble, and they are treated with equality and respect. Whitney Wolfe wants to make Bumble a great place for anyone (female or male) who decides to work for this dynamic company.

Entrepreneurship is one of the greatest passions of Ara Chackerian. This explains why his life, in general, is very successful, even when he is not good at long-term calendar planning and details. His daily drive mostly comes from vision and strategy of himself or other people. This couple up with his philanthropic nature gives rise to successful companies, especially in the healthcare sector. He is basically an angel investor. For more details visit Crunchbase.

 

His passion for healthcare solutions is greatly demonstrated by the fact that Ara is a co-founder (as well as a general partner) of the TMS Health Solutions. Prior to his involvement in this company, he fully concentrated on being an angel investor and financially aiding entrepreneurs. This institution attempts to provide long-term solutions for people who are dealing with depression which is treatment resistant. This is an area which has not been explored in the past. It can be termed as being more humanitarian than medical despite being coupling up of the two aspects. Check out californiablog.org

 

 

In Limonapa, SA, he has an investment (reforestation Teak plantation) which is mainly focused on supporting the active efforts of conservation of the environment. Ara also owns non-profitable organizations aiming at aiding people in society to be better people. These include CREA Nicaragua and JUMA ventures which concentrate on the intellectual development of the youth. You can visit their website arachackerian.com

 

 

Ara Chackerian is a strong believer in the many things that the youth are capable of accomplishing. He believes that it is a stage where there should be an attempt to create the right kind of networks. They ought to try their best to create the right surroundings because even though it is debatable, he believes the society matters just as much as the innate abilities in the general development of a person. It is as easy as being able to tap energy and ideas from the people around one, like the way his wife helps him in idea formulation. Generally, Mr Chackerian is a strong believer in the fact that we should all make a conscious effort to be actively engaged in life. Life is the sole source of relevant ideas.

 

Success in investments could be a complex mix of rational analysis, risk-management and a whole lot of unknown fortuitous variables that are too complicated to calculate. This means that it helps to be largely conservative in one’s management of investments to survive in trading. As Warren Buffet said, take all the risks you want but make sure you don’t forget that tomorrow, you still have to show up for work. Fortunately for Chief Investment Officer Sahm Adrangi of Kerrisdale Capital Management, LLC, he understands the value of being conservative and the importance of giving negative reports.

In the last negative report given by Sahm Adrangi for St. Joe Company, he argued that there’s too much misleading information about the firm. He believes that St. Joe Company’s calculation of the value of their real estate ventures could be far out or off the mark. He also believed that St. Joe’s real market value could even be lower because of the situation that its main investor, Fairholme Fund, is experiencing. The shareholder is still under investigation or processing because of the new SEC liquidity rules that will make or break the real value of the firm. This new regulation could even force St. Joe Company to force-sell its assets.

Secondly, it is seen through the analysis of Kerrisdale that no big improvement can be observed on St. Joe’s plans for their real estate project. The channel checks from Kerrisdale even saw no significant activity regarding building department inquiries over their product offerings. This leads Sahm Adrangi to argue that it’s too much of a stretch to believe in the current $1 billion assessment of the market value of the entire St. Joe Company’s projects. Such valuation could not match the current progress of the firm.
What makes Kerrisdale Capital’s assessment of St. Joe Company significantly reliable is the fact that Mr. Sahm Adrangi is the Founder itself of Kerrisdale Capital, so he holds accountable for whatever advice he gives out to his clients. He is also an experienced investment analyst, especially from his equity fund experience at Longacre Fund Management.

Sometimes we all wish investing was as simple as flipping a coin, though this is not the case. Despite it being the most volatile field to invest in, many people such as Vinod Gupta seems to get it right. Vinod Gupta’s success story is a perfect example that one can thrive having started from the scratch. Gupta is a self-made entrepreneur born in 1946 in a tiny village near New Delhi in India. Modern amenities such as electricity, running water, current infrastructure, TV or transportation was all history to him. As a young visionary boy, Gupta has always wanted to be successful as well as help his family and community be successful too. Having been passionate about investing, he took a bank loan of $100 and started a company that later sold for $680 million. As the CEO of InfoGROUP, Gupta was able to acquire various companies and finally created a dominant firm in information technology. Vinod prides himself on providing underserved populations with employment opportunities.

 

After he had graduated from the University of Nebraska at Lincoln, Gupta was employed by Commodore Corporation, a company that dealt with a mobile home. In the role of Marketing Research Analyst, he was assigned the work of compiling a list of dealers of mobile homes within the US. While doing this, it dawned on him that there never existed that kind of record. This saw him recognize the benefit of saving time for such businesses utilizing that kind of comprehensive lists. He, therefore, set out in creating his database as well as creating direct mail marketing. Within a short period, he was able to receive a lot of orders for a compiled list. This made him realize the high demand that existed for business-to-business information, and America Business was born. Go To This Page for related information.

 

Vinod Gupta believes that to invest wisely is not a matter of throwing out money to more profitable companies, but about the long-term effects, the money you invested will make. According to Gupta, companies should not practice shady businesses or work towards getting rich but instead be a part of helping the community.

Whitney Wolfe is everything one could ever want in their youth. The tech entrepreneur is young, full of energy, beautiful, hip and fruitful in the corporate world. Whitney Wolfe is the brainchild of dating app Bumble. In the recent days, Bumble has gained more popularity than other apps in the dating scene owing to the great features that Whitney Wolfe has embedded in the application.

Bumble works in a way that no other dating app does. It allows only women to make the first move whenever they identify a match on the platform. This approach to the dating experience couldn’t be timelier given that today more individuals are agitating for equality between sexes. For a long time, making advances has been left for men. According to Whitney Wolfe, it doesn’t make sense that men and women are equal in marriage yet women are discouraged from making the first move whenever they spot a potential partner.

Recently, Whitney Wolfe declined a buyout offer for Bumble. The $450 million offer was mostly seen as an undervaluation of the enterprise that is fast rising in the social space. It has taken a lot of effort and dedication to growing Bumble into its current status. The popularity of Bumble has given Whitney Wolfe a lot of admiration in the corporate world. Business Insider ranks Whitney Wolfe among the top 30 technology female influencers in the United States.

While Whitney Wolfe created the dating app Bumble, the entrepreneur seems to have already met her match and was only keen on ensuring that others share in the spoils of healthy relationships. Whitney Wolfe recently tied a knot with Michael Herd in a flamboyant ceremony held at Villa Tre Ville in Positano, Italy. Using the cheeky hashtag #Homeiswheretheherdis, the couple let fans and the whole world into their happy moments. Whitney Wolfe wore an elegant Oscar de la Renta gown that flattered her body. The coastal view from the reception hall was breathtaking. The wedding will go down as one of its kind in the coast of Amalfi, Italy.

In as much as Bumble is experiencing steady growth, Whitney Wolfe reckons that the application is set to achieve even more growth. Recently, the company intimated that it would be working on a redesign that will enable users to switch between other platforms such as Bumble networking Bizz and Bumble BFF. Bumble is currently ranked as one of the fastest growing dating platforms in the United States.
