Tennis great Serena Williams has raised $111 million for an early stage venture capital fund with a focus on diversity, the firm said Tuesday.

About three-quarters of the companies backed by Serena Ventures LLC are led by founders from under-represented communities, the firm has said. Founded in 2014, it currently has a portfolio of about 60 startups, according to the New York Times, which reported the news earlier Tuesday.
