Malini Saba started her career journey in the 90s as a full-time venture capitalist in the Silicon Valley. Her experience in the industry enabled her to fund startups that were later sold at a fortune making her a wealthy woman in the process. Saba applied this strategy to invest in more than 18 companies including PayPal (she made a lot of money when it was bought by eBay) and Netscreen Technologies (she also made a lot of money when Jupiter Networks acquired the company).
