Tennis legend Serena Williams has just revealed new details about her company, Serena Ventures, an investment firm.

In an Instagram post, Williams writes to her 10.9 million followers that she’s been quietly building up a portfolio, investing in a variety of companies over the past five years.

“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.”

Cryptocurrency exchange Coinbase is one of more than 30 companies in the VC portfolio. The San Francisco-based startup is the largest crypto exchange in the US. Under the leadership of CEO Brian Armstrong, Coinbase is in a global expansion phase, launching crypto-to-crypto trading services in 11 countries earlier this week.
