Mandy Ginsberg Joins Speaker Lineup for Business Insider’s Ignition Conference

Match Group CEO Mandy Ginsberg will speak at Business Insider’s Ignition Conference, held in New York City next month.

It’s been a busy year for Ginsberg and her online dating brand. The value of a Match Group share decreased by over 20% after Facebook Dating was announced in May.

Despite recovering all of that lost value, and more,  the price has plummeted again in the past couple of weeks. At the time of writing, Match Group’s share price sits at $36.26, just $1.68 above the Facebook announcement trough.

Mandy Ginsberg has said on several occasions that her and her team are not at all concerned about the social media giant entering the dating space. She believes young people want to keep online dating separate from their Facebook accounts.

Match Group are also involved in an ongoing lawsuit with Bumble over alleged patent infringement. However, after the two companies failed to settle privately, Bumble wants to drop its counter-lawsuit which accuses Match Group of the misappropriation of trade secrets.

A group of the Tinder founders, including Sean Rad, are also suing its parent company and IAC, claiming their original stock options were undervalued.

Ignition is a two-day conference, starting on December 3rd at New York City’s Spring Studios, and brings together over 700 leaders in the technology and media industries.

Tickets are available now for $3,995, although discounts are available for those who are booking in larger groups.
