In her first project as a start-up investor, Priyanka recently toured the San Francisco home of her new portfolio company — the school which uses projects and group learning instead of more traditional courses, to teach software development, according to The New York Times.

The actress’ investment in Holberton is part of an $8.2 million round of funding for Holberton that closed in April. She will join the company’s board of advisers, and will emphasise support for Holberton’s mission to educate people from underprivileged backgrounds.

Her second investment is in Bumble, a dating and social media app founded by Whitney Wolfe Herd. She plans to help promote Bumble’s launch in India in the coming months, reported The New York Times.
