Legendary tennis player Serena Williams has revealed here investment portfolio in an Instagram post. She launched her own VC firm Serena Ventures back in 2014 investing in various companies including Coinbase. Apart from the crypto exchange, the investment also includes razor brand Billie, Wing, a co-working space for women and online education platform Master Class.
“In 2014, (yes I know I can keep a secret) I launched Serena Ventures with the mission of giving opportunities to founders across an array of industries. Serena Ventures invests in companies that embrace diverse leadership, individual empowerment, creativity and opportunity,” she wrote in the post.
According to the Serena Ventures website, Serena Williams’ company has invested in more than 30 projects with a total market capitalization of $12 billion. The website doesn’t provide info on the amount invested in Coinbase.
The investment in Coinbase is not a big surprise, as Williams’ husband, Reddit founder Alexis Ohanian, was one of the earliest investors of the crypto exchange.
