Millennial Businesswomen: From Bamboo Bags to Burgers to Billions
1Whitney Wolfe Herd – from Bamboo Bags to Bumble
How She Did It: She once sold bamboo tote bags while still in college, but went on to become the co-founder of Tinder. After an acrimonious departure, which resulted in Wolfe Herd filing a sexual harrasment lawsuit, she became the founder and CEO of the dating app Bumble. Her stake in the company is valued at over $1.5 billion.
