Serena Williams could cash in on an upcoming tech IPO (FB)

Tennis star Serena Williams could see a boon from the initial public offering of the parent company of SurveyMonkey.
Williams serves as a director of the company and owns 210,000 options and another 35,000 shares.
Williams’ options come with a very standard caveat: Each one will cost her $16.03 to buy — so unless SurveyMonkey really explodes out of the gate after its IPO, her potential profit will likely pale in comparison to her winnings from tennis. 
Still, depending how things go, the SurveyMonkey IPO could mean a tidy payday for Williams. 

Serena Williams has racked up some major cash on the tennis circuit  — she’s made over $84 million in winnings in her career.  Now she has a chance to strike it big in a tech IPO.

Williams is among those who could see a windfall from the IPO of SVMK, the parent company of SurveyMonkey. The tennis star serves as a director of the company and holds some 210,000 options and another 35,000 restricted shares in the company. See the rest of the story at Business Insider
