Austin-based dating and networking app Bumble, which was founded in 2014 by Whitney Wolfe Herd, is reportedly considering an IPO.

Bumble, the Austin-based dating and networking app, is reportedly considering a multi-billion-dollar initial public offering that could come early next year, according to a report by Bloomberg.

The company has not finalized anything and the timeline could change, according to the story's unnamed sources "familiar with the matter."

From the report:

"Bumble could seek a valuation of $6 billion to $8 billion, said one of the people, asking not to be named because the matter is private. While it is talking to banks, it hasn't settled on a lineup, the people added."

Bumble was founded in 2014 by Whitney Wolfe Herd, who previously co-founded the popular hook-up app Tinder.
