Bumble Bizz, launched October 2, 2017, in the USA, Canada, UK, France and Germany, and instantly connects users through geo-targeting and enables them to swipe through people around them looking to network, connect and mentor.
Bumble users and professionals around the world will be seamlessly integrated into the experience in the same manner as Bumble dating and Bumble BFF. Bumble Bizz will include a photo verification tool designed to help ensure people are who they say are. Beyond profile photos, a user’s Bumble Bizz profile will include a digital resume, in addition to a skills section showcasing the users’ talents and accolades. Users can also include examples of their work in additional profile cards. Much like the transformative impact swiping had on the dating space, Bumble Bizz is specifically designed to disrupt antiquated and inefficient outlets for networking. Bumble Bizz is free and currently available from the App store and will be available for Android users as of October 18, 2017.
