Matchmaker, matchmaker, make me an IPO: Bumble is reportedly planning to go public

The popular dating app Bumble wants to hook up with an initial public offering.

An IPO for the company that runs the app, best known for empowering women to be the ones to send the first message to potential dates, would be in the $6 billion to $8 billion range, Bloomberg reports this morning. Bumble is talking to banks now.

It’s long been a darling of the dating-app world. In November, the private equity group Blackstone snagged a $3 billion majority stake in MagicLab, then the name of Bumble’s parent company, which also owns Badoo.
