Bumble Bizz for women entrepreneurs - presenters at The 2019 National Mompreneurs Conference

Complimentary Headshots

‘BEE’ Ready! The Bumble Team will be on-hand to help you create your Bumble Bizz profile, including taking your professional headshot right on the spot! Attendees can then use their fresh new headshot to create and update their Bizz profile, with guidance from the team on how to use the app and make meaningful connections.

Launched in 2017, Bizz is Bumble’s fresh take on networking, with an emphasis on finding professional opportunities over job hunting. Bumble Bizz is the first to bring the “swiping” and “women first” experience to professional connecting. Users can instantly find others who are looking to network, connect professionally and mentor. Adding to Bumble’s vision of becoming the ultimate social network for people you don’t yet know, Bizz is powered by the notion that one connection can lead to the opportunity of a lifetime.
