One of the many companies in which Serena Williams invested in is Coinbase. The startup is the largest exchange in the United States and its CEO is Brian Armstrong. At the same time, the platform has a presence in other markets such as Europe and it is planning to launch in Japan. Moreover, the company announced Crypto-to-Crypto services in other countries such as Argentina, Chile, New Zealand, Hong Kong and South Korea.
Serena Ventures will be mentoring young founders and early-stage startups.
