An Evening with Co-Founder of Tinder

Jonathan Badeen co-founded the world’s most popular dating app, downloaded more than 100 million times and creating 26 million matches every day. Jonathan’s journey to creating Tinder took him from potential law student to budding actor, before he was caught up in the mobile revolution, taught himself mobile app design and coding, and created the swipe – an iconic gesture that is now made more than 1 billion times a day by Tinder users.

Speaking from his own unique viewpoint while giving tips on how new product designers and developers can use design, data, and marketing to find their own matches on the road to success, Jonathan shares the story of Tinder’s meteoric rise with Manifesto. Jonathan discusses Likes and Super Likes, #SwipeRight, Your Personal Settings, and Zombies.
