Alexis Ohanian Reflects on How Daughter Olympia Influenced His Professional Growth

 Alexis Ohanian, husband of Serena Williams, recently shared insights into how his eldest daughter, Olympia, has been instrumental in his personal and professional development. Ohanian expressed how fatherhood has fueled his determination to pursue meaningful endeavors and leave a legacy that would make his daughter proud.

A staunch advocate for parental leave and gender equality, Ohanian and Williams are parents to two daughters — Olympia, who celebrated her sixth birthday in September 2023, and Adira River, born in August 2023.

In a recent thread on X (formerly Twitter), Ohanian delved into how embracing fatherhood has shifted his perspectives and business priorities. He emphasized that becoming a parent has been immensely rewarding, both in his personal and professional spheres.

"Embracing fatherhood has been one of the most fulfilling experiences, personally and professionally. Fellow business dads will resonate," Ohanian shared.

Ohanian's reflections on parenthood and career choices resonated deeply with his audience, garnering positive feedback from his followers. Responding to queries about the impact of fatherhood on his professional life, Ohanian outlined significant decisions and milestones since embracing fatherhood.

He highlighted his decision to resign from the Reddit board in 2020, following the events surrounding the death of George Floyd and the ensuing Black Lives Matter protests. Additionally, Ohanian revealed his venture to launch Seven Seven Six, his own fund, after dividing Initialized Capital, the venture capital firm he co-founded in 2011.

"Reflecting on 2020, with Olympia at 3, I was compelled to step down from @reddit board, restructure @initialized to launch @sevensevensix — my most meaningful endeavor, my ultimate legacy. I wanted my daughter to witness my commitment to excellence. The past three years have epitomized the pinnacle of my career," Ohanian shared.
