In July of 2018, Bumble CEO Whitney Wolfe revealed that her company was being targeted by a Neo-Nazi group. The reason why Bumble was being targeted has to do with the company’s feminist stance.

As of August 2018, the company has 30 million plus users and it also quickly becoming a household name. Connect with Whitney Wolfes by visiting her linkedin account.
One of the most interesting things about Bumble is its feminist stance. Whitney Wolfe designed the dating site to be place that is dominated by women and not by men. The ladies of Bumble do not hate men. This is far from the truth. They adore men. As a matter of fact, Whitney Wolfe married a man by the name of Michael Herd this past December in 2017.
The women of Bumble are not out to destroy men or to replace them. Instead, they want men to treat them with respect, dignity and to value their worth. They want gender and occupational equality. They also want to be the ones to make the first move and not just the guy. Bumble is truly a forward thinking organization that wants women to flourish and to be very successful.
The site only allows women to make the first move. Guys have to wait to see if a woman is interested in him to get her attention. This is challenging for most males because they are conditioned by society to be the pursuers. However, Bumble has placed women into this role and the guys are now at their mercy.
Speaking of mercy, did you know that Whitney Wolfe was originally going to create a site called Merci? This would have been a female only social network. Bumble’s CEO took some of this idea and incorporated into Bumble. Now, Bumble is more than a place for women to pick up guys; it’s also a place for women to hang out and to connect.
After stating all of this you can now understand why misogynists such as Neo-Nazi’s would be upset with this organization. This company challenges old norms and traditional standards of behavior. Whitney travels with a bodyguard and she protects her employees as well. She also makes sure that her users are not in any danger as well. Whitney Wolfe will not allow any Nazi based or prejudiced organization to stop Bumbel from being successful.
GreenSky, Inc., was founded back in 2006 and its headquarters are in Atlanta, Georgia. The company is in the financial technology market and partners with banks and other merchants to provide consumers with loans for healthcare, home improvement and other vital purposes through GreenSky credit. The company’s primary customer base is home remodeling contractors and homeowners.
GreenSky credit provides its services through amobile app which it markets to contractors who in turn introduce it to homeowners as a tool to enable them to apply for loans. The main selling point for the contractors is that it helps them attract more customers to their business. GreenSky credit doesn’t, however, use its capital to finance the loans. Instead, it partners with banks that provide the loans. The contractors and the banks pay a certain percentage of the loan amount to GreenSky. This is a genius business plan since the company transfers most of the risk and work to the other parties and still benefits from both sides.
The company’s CEO and co-founder David Zalik is an Israeli immigrant who was raised in Alabama since he was four years old. He never graduated high school or college. His father was a mathematics professor at Auburn University where Zalik attended part-time classes after turning thirteen and later enrolled full time instead of going to high school. At some point, he started buying computer parts and assembling them to PC’s and then selling them. He later dropped out to focus on his company MicroTech which he later sold when he was twenty-two for a couple of million dollars.
After starting the company in 2006, it wasn’t until around 2013 that the GreenSky credit model that involved contractors began showing some promise. Over the years the company has sold some of its stock to other investors, but Zalik still owns the majority of the company which puts him on the mark of billionaires with a net worth of about 2.5 billion.
The GreenSky Credit provides the loans in a matter of hours in a few simple steps; a contractor is chosen, approved and trained and later chooses the type of loans he wants to offer his customers, he then pitches it to a potential customer and helps them apply and when approved receives an account number. If the customer accepts the terms of the loan, the payment is approved to the contractor by providing the account number and paying a percentage of the amount to the contractor according to their agreement. The contactor then receives the loan within 24 hours.
