Whitney Wolfe has been through her fair share of bad experiences when it comes to online dating. These experiences are part of the reason why she made the decision to create a different kind of dating app that put women in control of who starts the conversation. This is how Bumble was born in the home of one of her business partner’s parents.
Despite having high hopes for the startup, Whitney Wolfe had no way of knowing just how popular her dating app would be. With millions of users looking for friends, business connections, and of course dates, there’s no telling just how far Bumble will go as a brand. Recently, Wolfe announced that Bumble had been working with actress and philanthropist Priyanka Chopra for the last 9 months or so to expand the app into India.

Online dating has been a popular concept in India for years, but for the most part, women have been hesitant about joining these communities because they are far outnumbered by men. By using Bumble’s platform that focuses on empowering women by allowing them to start conversations, Chopra and Whitney Wolfe believe that women of India may be more open to online dating using their platform. Whitney Wolfe believes that Priyanka Chopra’s efforts are empowering women in India and across the globe with her actions. Bumble is the 2nd tech company that Chopra has invested into. Prior to this, Priyanka Chopra invested in a coding school.
While making connections is what Bumble is known for, they recently announced that they are expanding into the world of skincare. This may seem like a strange combination to some, but these types of collaborations are becoming more and more common in business. Even businesses like 7-11 are getting into the beauty product trend by selling their own line of low-cost makeup and skincare products at their convenience stores. According to Whitney Wolfe, Bumble has been working with dermatologists and psychotherapists to develop a line of serums that will help users on an emotional level while making their skin healthier. The line has an estimated launch date of 2019.

ClassDojo is a special application that is changing many classrooms in the world. The application creates a community between teachers, educators, and students. Just recently, the company announced that it had successfully raised twenty-one million dollars in the second series of venture funding. The capital is aimed at helping consistent communication about the student’s activities, behavioral and social development in school.
With adequate communication when the students are in school, the parents are updated about their children’s experiences at school and how they are behaving. This means that the parents are not shocked by the incidences that are mostly discussed at the parent educator meetings that are held only once in a semester. The application helps many students stay focused on their studies because they know that their parents will be updated on their behaviors and other activities at the end of the day.
ClassDojo application was invented by two gentlemen who felt that no any platform connected parents, teachers, and students. The two co-founders, Liam Don and Sam Chaudhary said that the company had decided to rise the second round that ended in December 2015 so that they can use the money to grow their team and at the same time figure out the kind of content or features that can help the parents using the application. The users of the application will soon enjoy more services, even when the children are not in school.
Sam Chaudhary says that the main idea of the institution is to help the parents in the conversation they have at home with their children. The parents can use the help they get through the app at home to enhance learning and also the development of the children in school. Teachers can now use the application to plan their school activities and make them known to the parents every day. They can also use the application to snap photos or take videos throughout the day. These photos or videos can be used to show off the students in art or any other school activity.
The ClassDojo application was started in 2011, and since then, educators say that they have seen a lot of progress in school. At the moment, the app is used by more than eighty-five thousand schools in the country. The app faces a lot of competition from some of the upcoming tech companies in the country who want to connect teachers, parents, and students, but it has worked hard to maintain its position in the country.
