Besides being a business woman, Malini is also a philanthropist. Her brand of philanthropy is helping and uplifting other women. She works with women from underprivileged communities and tries to ease their struggles. One of the organizations that she started, the Stree Mukti helps low income earning women better their lives.
Her investment journey started in the 90swhen she put some of her money in the companies in Silicon Valley. Other ventures that she has put her money in include PayPal, Netscreen Technologies, and Sycamore Networks. Her bet on these companies paid off huge because the onset of the information age made the businesses really successful, something that has made her a millionaire.
Away from business and investing, Malini has a very happy and healthy family life. She is the proud mother of one child and believes in being present for her child at all times. She feels really lucky to have made the investment choices that she made when she was younger as they have shaped her future into the massive success she is enjoying currently. She states that in a world that is more dominated by the other gender, a woman has to do more to assert herself and get the respect that she deserves.

The business world can be absolutely brutal. An overwhelming amount of new companies fail all around the world.
