Whitney Wolfe is responsible for an app called Bumble. Bumble is going to change online dating and boosting Austin’s tech-industry reputation as the new “Silicon Hills.” Bumble is designed to avoid trolling, or pictures and messages that are entirely unsolicited. Bumble is designed to put women first. In creating Bumble, Whitney Wolfe received direct advice from Andrey Andreev, who founded Badoo, a European social network. They are now partners in the Austin based dating app that is currently called Bumble.
Bumble is very popular and it really works. It is similar to Tinder in the sense that people connect by tapping on other profile’s pictures, but with Bumble, only women can make the first contact after both sides have indicated they are interested. Currently, Bumble is responsible for over 300 thousand women starting conversations every single day.
Whitney Wolfe is proud that with Bumble, women can feel protected and confident that they will only be contacted if they make the first move and this makes the conversation have a start that they will control and set the tone and topics of discussion to make it as hot or as formal as the women on the app wish to set.
Whitney Wolfe is from Salt Lake City, Utah. She went to Southern Methodist University and chose International Studies as her major. At age 19 she became a mix of a philanthropist and entrepreneur and sold bamboo tote bags in order to benefit areas and victims of the BP oil spill. Whitney Wolfe was also involved with the “Help Us Project.” Whitney Wolfe also helped orphanages in Southeast Asia.
Whitney Wolfe joined Hatch Labs at age 22. She was the vice-president in marketing at Tinder. Later on, she left Tinder in 2014. After her departure, she started Bumble and should be a promising figure in the app universe.

With traffic congestion on the rise in Austin, Texas new approaches need to be taken to get people where they need to go. Using a tech approach to solve traffic issues Central Texas Regional Mobility Authority looks to alleviate traffic congestion in the Austin area.
Mike Heiligenstein is the executive director at Central Texas Regional Mobility Authority, or CTRMA for short. With 30 years of experience as a public official, Heiligenstein focused on many infrastructure projects including several transportation projects. In addition to acting as the executive director of CTRMA, Heiligenstein serves on the boards of Texas Transportation Institute and the International Bridge, Tunnel and Turnpike Association.
Serving CTRMA since 2003, Mike Heiligenstein has overseen their transition from a startup transportation agency to a nationally recognized leader in toll road operations. CTRMA is an independent government agency that works to improve the transportation system in Williamson and Travis counties. Using innovative and multi-modal transportation solutions to reduce traffic congestion, CTRMA improves the quality of life and economic vitality of those in the Austin area.
In order to combat the growing traffic congestion in Austin, CTRMA will be implementing MoPac Express Lanes that use sophisticated technology and variable tolling to manage traffic flow. While these MoPac Express Lanes will not eliminate traffic congestion entirely, they will make traffic flow more reliable for commuters.
Aside from the MoPac Express Lanes, CTRMA has partnered with Metropia to create a mobile traffic app. The app is integrated with CTRMA’s traffic monitoring system and provides drivers with real-time traffic updates and alternate routes.
Encouraging commuters to travel by bike or by foot when possible is also an effective means to reducing traffic congestion. CTRMA builds Shared Use Paths alongside their projects to provide pedestrians and cyclists with a path to travel on.
The starting and stopping of drivers on these busy roadways often leads to minor breakdowns and accidents. This only adds to traffic congestion by blocking the roadways. To offer a more practical response to minor breakdowns, CTRMA is working with the Capital Area Metropolitan Planning Organization to form their Highway Emergency Response Operator. This program that is referred to as HERO provides free roadside assistance to motorists with minor vehicle issues. Attending to minor breakdowns quickly will help to avoid blocking traffic flow.
