How has a company like Bumble gained so much ground in just over four years? By focusing on the needs of everyone, including the users underserved by other social and dating apps, as COO Sarah Jones Simmer told me in this installment of my LinkedIn series, "Looking Forward."
That kind of inclusion is a passion Sarah and I share: With such an incredible range of identity in both the workforce and the customer base, one-size-fits-all solutions just don't succeed across the board.
But what does work for everyone is the "economics of inclusion," Sarah says. "I hope that that is causing an entire generation of investors and corporate leaders to realize that inclusion is not just a moral imperative, it's actually really good business because we understand how to serve one another," she explains.
