In a dazzling move in 2009, Venus Williams and Serena Williams dove into football ownership by buying a stake in the Miami Dolphins.
14 years later, and Forbes have reported that the NFL franchise is now worth a staggering $4.6 billion.
Venus Williams And Serena Williams are Astute Investors
What makes this feat even more remarkable is that the Williams sisters became the first female African Americans with an ownership stake in an NFL team.
This groundbreaking achievement had the dynamic duo brimming with excitement, as they shared their sentiments about the purchase.
“Having spent so much of my childhood in the area, being involved with a staple of Miami culture is a huge honor. We look forward to many championships and much success together with the Miami Dolphins.” Serena Williams
Venus, equally thrilled, expressed her gratitude for being a partner in the Miami Dolphins franchise, extending her heartfelt thanks to owner Stephen Ross.
Little did they know that this partnership would launch their entrepreneurial and creative endeavors.
