Speaking at the first Girl Boss Rally in LA earlier this month, Bumble’s Samantha Fulgham revealed the app’s plan to provide safe spaces for Bumble dates and connections to meet.

The female-led app recently moved into the friendship space, with Bumble BFF, and is soon to launch Bumble Biz for business connections. Fulgham, the company’s Director of College Marketing, explained that Bumble will create live spaces allowing connections to meet safely and easily in real life.

Speaking in place of Whitney Wolfe, who had to cancel due to a family emergency, Fulgham also spoke of Bumble’s ‘Bee-tique’ – an online shop which will sell complimentary products by partner brands.
