Gupta, a resident of Bengaluru, wrote: “Your girlfriend is being offered a carry because of her Bumble reach. If this isn’t @peakbengaluru I really don’t know what is.” The screenshot she shared shows the person texting, “You know you should monetize your Bumble profile.” The person also added, “If you have so many impressions about it.”

Apparently surprised by these unusual texts, Gupta simply replied “Haha, what.” Another person texted: “Okay, hear my suggestion!” The individual then went on to explain more. “Add a line that includes my fund and tells founders to contact me if they’re raising. If I end up investing in any of them, I will give you a percentage of the carrying value of those companies,” the person wrote.
