“Serena Ventures invests in companies that embrace diverse leadership, individual empowerment, creativity and opportunity. The venture firm launched a self-funded clothing line called S by Serena last May, Forbes reported.

Forbes reports that 60% of the Williams’ investments have gone to companies led by women or people of color.

Williams is a global adviser to Verizon Media, HuffPost’s parent company.
