Bumble Expands Bizz and BFF to New Zealand


Bumble has recently expanded in New Zealand.

After being made available in the country for three years, the dating app has expanded its service by offering Bumble Bizz and Bumble BFF, both of which launched in New Zealand last week.

Bumble founder Whitney Wolfe-Herd said: “After the launch of Bumble Date, users were starting to connect as friends, so we decided to launch BFF.

“When I was using BFF I matched with someone who I then went on to hire at Bumble HQ, from there I thought why not create a platform for women to build business connections and advance their careers.”

She added: “We want to build meaningful connections empowering women in all facets of their lives – be that relationships, friendships or business networking.”

Bumble is now available in 144 countries and has more than 33 million registered users.

Wolfe-Herd added: “After a hugely successful 12 months in Australia, we are now focused on growing the already engaged New Zealand market. Bumble is the perfect fit for New Zealand, a country that has always been a world leader when putting women first.”
