Talk about good genes.
Serena Williams’ daughter, Olympia, is now the youngest team owner in all of professional sports.
On Tuesday, the NWSL announced that a group of celebrities have come together to create an ownership group that helped expand the league to Los Angeles.
And Serena’s daughter, Olympia, is a part-owner.
The group is led by actres Natalie Portman, venture capitalist Kara Nortman, and Julie Uhrman. Alexis Ohanian’s venture capital firm, Initialized Capital, led the investment.
“As someone who spends hours kicking around a football with my 2-year-old daughter, I want her to have a front row seat to this revolution,” Serena’s husband said in the NWSL’s press release about the news. “I’m personally investing on behalf of my family because creating more opportunities in women’s sports is important to my wife and me, and we want to be a part of making a better future for our daughter.”
Only a few people under age 40 have become owners of professional teams, one of them being LeBron James, who owned a minority stake in Liverpool at age 26.
