The tennis megastar Serena Williams’s repertoire extends to philanthropy, fashion, and business beyond tennis. She is recognized in the world for her 23 Grand Slams but also for her strong, independent woman persona. In 2018, to create a brand that resonates with her vision and values, Williams founded ‘S by Serena’.
An exclusive clothing line that gives women the power to #BeSeenBeHeard, ‘S by Serena’ is a complete e-commerce outlet. That is to say, the customer can shop for the products online and get them delivered without any middlemen. Serena is all for age-old technologies, and she also believes that e-commerce is the way of the future.
Along with tops, dresses, outwear, and bottoms, the company provides essential accessories. Plus, as marketing collateral, a complimentary ‘S’ pin is sent with every purchase. The brand feels modern, and its designs celebrate the women of the 21st century.
September 2019 marked an important month for the company; ‘S by Serena’ debuted at the New York Fashion Week. Soon after, Serena also launched her jewelry line in the market. Both on and off the court, Williams knows how to hit the aces better than most.
Watch the introductory video of the brand below.
Serena’s mental strength has been her successor for years as she has excelled through many impossible odds. Despite being 39-years-old and having won more than any active player, she is passionate to compete and win even more.
Besides the enormous prize-money assembled through her career, the American is an avid investor and a full-fledged entrepreneur. So much so that in 2020, Serena made the Forbes’ Richest Self-Made Women’s list.
Founded in 2014, Williams started her own venture company known as Serena Ventures. The company’s motto is to invest in ideas that make a difference. Of the 30+ companies she’s already invested in the last six years, she also funds her ‘S by Serena’ clothing line through this venture capital.
Majorly seen campaigning her brand herself, Serena is now obtaining global recognition for her line. Her expected surge at the 2021 Australian Open is also gaining quite a lot of attention. Serena has built a perfect career in both tennis and business, and the latter will go a long way after she hangs her racket.
