Tinder Founder Sean Rad has had a tumultuous few years.
When Tinder was launched in 2012, it was an immediate success. The computer program made over one million matches in less than two months, became a feeling in the university area, and received recognition from tech's elite. Six years after launch, the company is valued at around $ 3 billion and is one of the highest amounts in the App Store.
But Tinder also had its share of problems. One of its cofounders, Whitney Wolfe, filed a sexual harassment lawsuit against another co-founder, Justin Mateen. The line went down from the position of CEO, just to get back to the helm six months later. In the end, he swapped as CEO to be Tinder's leader.
Now, Rad and a group of nine other former and present Tinder employees sue InterActiveCorp and Match Group, owners of Tinder, for $ 2 billion.
How Rad got started, helped build Tinder in a billion dollar startup, and went to war with IAC.
