SERENA WILLIAMS TOPS FORBES’ SELF MADE WOMEN LIST
Serena Williams has become the first athlete ever to hit Forbes’ annual list of the World’s Richest Self-Made Women, with an estimated fortune of $225 million. For the past five years, she’s been quietly dropping money into 34 startups and in April, she formally announced the opening of Serena Ventures to fund others and launch companies herself.
As she is one of the few specifically gearing investments around herself, she said: “I want to be a part of it. I want to be in the infrastructure. I want to be the brand, instead of just being the face.”
