Whitney Wolfe Herd Prepares Bumble For The Next Stage

Bumble has already taken off as the fastest growing dating app. You can look everywhere and see young people using it as their preferred dating app. The only way for things to go better is to change Bumble into something much more. It doesn’t have to be about one thing. It can expand and give the world a way to enjoy everything it has to offer. That’s exactly what Whitney Wolfe wants to do with her new app and she is determined to make sure that the world is fully aware of everything that she plans on doing for Bumble now.The main way that she wants to expand the reach of Bumble is by making the app into a social media network. She’s using the same design of the dating app in ways that it traditionally hasn’t been used.

With this in mind she believes she has the ability to make her app much more appealing as one doesn’t have to “leave” Bumble in order to meet other needs. That’s powerful and has the ability to create something we’ve never seen before. It’s technology doing what technology was designed to do in the first place. Despite this potential for success Wolfe has seen that there is still much to do and that she can’t keep still for too long.Whitney Wolfe is trying to do much more than she has seen in the past. She wants to make this into a billion dollar company and she wants to make her empowerment of women the central focus.

This is so much more than what other dating apps are trying to be. She wants to be at the center of the app world and she wants to take over the market for herself. If this gives her the chance we may be able to see that happen. It’s not going to happen over night but if she is determined there is a way to do that.The next phase for this company is going to change the way that many people decide to think about it. Before the age of 30 Wolfe has already managed to turn it into something that just about everyone likes. If she’s able to she’ll turn this into a name we won’t forget. The gender dynamics paradigm has been shifted and Bumble is going to take credit for that. It’s a revolution in the dating world.




American Institute Of Architects: A Powerful Voice Advocating For Architects

     American Institute of Architects is the premiere organization which represents licensed architects as well as other professionals involved industries of design and construction in the United States. When it was founded in 1857, there were no schools for architecture and no organized licensure process for architects. Anyone could claim to be an architect and the public didn’t hold architects in high regard. Through the work of the AIA, architects are now respected and often revered. The organization was started in New York with 13 members. Today the AIA has over 300 chapters and more than 90,000 members.

Initially, the goal of the AIA was to organize and improve the public image of the profession. Today the American Institute of Architects provides education, community redevelopment, government advocacy, support for the architecture profession, along with helping to coordinate the building industry. In 2010, the AIA named Robert Ivy FAIA as its CEO and executive vice president. He took office in February 2011. In the architectural profession Ivy is greatly recognized and a well-respected figure.

In 1996 he became Architectural Record’s editor-in-chief. During his time there the publication won many prestigious publishing industry awards and was among the world’s most widely read architecture publications. He was also McGraw-Hill Construction’s editorial director and vice president. Ivy was responsible for their family of design and construction publications’ editorial quality and managing the large editorial organization. In 2009, Robert Ivy received the Crane Award for his contributions to business media. It’s the top award given by American Business Media.

Robert Ivy has a B.A. in English he earned at The University of the South. He also graduated from Tulane University with a masters degree in architecture. He was an Ivy Architects principal and a Dean/Dale, Dean and Ivy managing partner for over 13 years. Alpha Rho Chi, the world-renowned 100 year old architectural fraternity, recognized Robert Ivy as Master Architect in 2010 for his work teaching a new generation about the value of design. Only 7 people have earned that designation in the fraternity’s history. In 1993, Ivy became an AIA College of Fellows member.

After serving as an advocate for architects around many important political, social and environmental issues and being a dedicated AIA Board of Directors member, Robert Ivy’s new role will see him managing the AIA national headquarter in Washington, DC, its 206 employees and $56 million annual budget and enhancing its effectiveness. Ivy will direct the focus of the organization to design and practice issues, strengthen the AIA’s voice on the value of design and improve the understanding of the public when it comes to issues related to architects and architecture. The entire AIA membership looks forward to working with him.
