Serena Williams exemplifies courage, beauty, power and style, and has overcome insurmountable odds to win 23 career Grand Slams, the second-most singles titles of record. Her remarkable tennis achievements, combined with her off-court success in fashion, philanthropy and business, make her one of the most recognizable icons in the world and a powerful voice for women, mothers and future mothers.
In 2019, Williams launched her own VC firm, Serena Ventures, which focuses on investing in companies that embrace diverse leadership, individual empowerment, creativity and opportunity. Williams' fashion brand, SERENA, which celebrates body positivity and female empowerment, made its New York Fashion Week debut this past September. Williams' endorsements include Nike, Wilson, Gatorade, Pampers, Stuart Weitzman, Beats by Dre and Wheaties. Her HBO sports documentary series, Being Serena, was nominated for a 2019 Peabody and 2019 MTV Movie and TV Award.
