The mastermind behind Badoo, currently the most expansive dating site with a record number of users, is Andrey Andreev. Andreev is a successful entrepreneur with an eye for potential in new ideas. In 2014, he invested a large amount of money in Bumble, which has grown to be widely recognized and praised amongst people looking to date and find friends. The growth and success of Bumble would not have been possible without Andreev’s talent in developing new businesses.

Born in Moscow, Russia, Andreev currently resides in London, England, where the headquarters of Badoo is located. Andrey Andreev did not rise through the ranks in a typical fashion, dropping out of college at 18 with a desire to travel the world. Andreev built up his wealth gradually with savvy business decisions and a strong focus on his desire to connect people online. 

Andrey Andreev’s first major success was the creation of a site that allowed website owners to track traffic on their sites. This allowed them to target certain demographics and evaluate the performance of their websites. This business was known as SpyLog and was an innovative idea at the time. As he expanded his web development skills, a natural strength for Andreev, he also began working on a series of progressive dating apps. He now works on Badoo, Bumble, and Chappy, which is a dating site for gay men. 300 developers work at the Badoo headquarters and are involved with the other dating sites as well. 

Single at 45, Andreev is incredibly focused on his career and is always on the lookout for new ideas. Now that he has achieved such impressive success, he can focus on creating content that would not have been possible at the beginning of his career. When he isn’t hard at work, Andreev enjoys creating new recipes in the kitchen. His passion for cooking is only second to the businesses he has created.
