Whitney Wolfe Bumble

  • Barely Famous stars Erin and Sara Foster will join Bumble as Heads of Creative for Bumble BFF and Bumble Bizz
  • The two women will be working with CEO and founder Whitney Wolfe Heard on brand awareness and content as well as live events.

Whitney Wolfe Heard’s relationship app Bumble has a new advantage over competitor LinkedIn.

Actresses and television producers Erin and Sara Foster have been announced as the Heads of Creative for Bumble BFF and Bumble Bizz, the friendship and networking arms of the website.

Bumble, which just started out as a dating app, just launched its Bizz platform in October.

The Fosters have been working on ideas with Wolfe Heard on everything from dinners and panels to TV shows within the app and partnerships with female-led companies.

Bumble says meeting the sisters was ‘kismet’

Whitney Wolfe Heard wasn’t looking for two new employees when she invited Erin and Sara Foster to speak about their careers at the “Women in Entertainment” panel on June 13 but that was, in fact, what she left with.

The sisters were supposed to talk about their careers in entertainment and Erin’s time as a screenwriter but the conversation quickly shifted to female friendships and women coming together to motivate each other in business.

“It was kismet,” Wolfe Heard said. Wolfe Heard was blown away by the sister’s passion for the mission of Bumble and how genuinely excited the two were about females coming together. “I felt like I couldn’t live without them.”

Bringing new perspectives to Bumble

Erin and Sara, who are known for their satirical portrayal of Hollywood on Barely Famous, are thrilled to bring a fresh perspective to the company.

“It’s not every day an opportunity like this comes around,” Sarah Foster said. “Everyone wants to be in tech. Silicon Valley is the new Hollywood.”
