Compared to other entrepreneurs, Whitney Wolfe has the notion that the start is smooth. Bumble does not offer a lot of services, and the people that it serves are manageable. Employees too can be controlled, the brand is in a starting phase, and they are taking a chance on the idea and vision of the founder. They are willing to fall or excel with the sole proprietor.
Whitney Wolfe has had the success of keeping the company culture intact, and that has been an admiration to not only the people who she mentors but also her fellow businesspeople from various sectors. Her advice to them is to prioritize the culture when hiring and placing the staff. As she was in Silicon Valley, she discovered that it was difficult to get people who have passion and also the required skill of innovation. These two features in a worker will promote the brand in a big way. She encourages the starting employees to put this quality on the new fellows joining her brand.
