Now we’re in bizzness! With @bumblebizz just weeks away from launching, I couldn’t imagine a more impactful headline. I’ve been reading @fastcompany for years, learning from & admiring the many business innovators they have featured. It was always a dream of mine to be a part of something that made an impact big enough to merit acknowledgement (a digital cover!) from a publication like fastco. There are no words to describe the amount of work, grit, determination, and perseverance myself and every single person who has dedicated their passion and time to Bumble. It’s moments like this that remind us how far we’ve come. On the other hand, it is moments like the past couple of weeks that remind us how much further we have to go, not only for our users but to make a bigger dent into hateful behavior in our world and online. A huge thank you to the incredible team at FastCo, to every single person who has been a part of our amazing team and journey, to our incredible users, and to you for making it through this long winded caption. This is surreal, and we are eternally humbled, grateful, and slightly tipsy from celebrating. Stay tuned for the launch of bumblebizz in a few short weeks and for this story to go live
