We hear it all the time. Your network is your net worth. Networking has increasingly become a focal point in business and is a must for anyone hoping to achieve success in the professional world. However, it’s not always easy. Factors like anxiety, lack of confidence, hectic schedules and plain old shyness can really hinder a person from getting out there and connecting with people who can be helpful to their career. The popular dating app Bumble, founded by feminist entrepreneur Whitney Wolfe Herd, is expanding its brand with the answer to our networking woes.
Bizz is the latest addition to the app, created with the goal of providing a networking and mentoring platform for professionals. Bizz allows users to upload digital resumes, work background and verified photos. Sounds good, right? Wait there’s more! Bizz borrows the “women-first” rule from its mother app, which only lets ladies make the first move. To celebrate the launch, our favorite girl bosses gathered in New York with an impressive guest list that included our own EIC Rachel Zoe, Priyanka Chopra, Kate Hudson and Karlie Kloss. See the lineup ahead to peek at their dress-to-impress looks.
