Inside Beyoncé's Investments and Her $500M Net Worth

It’s evident that Beyoncé is more than just a singer — she’s a literal powerhouse.

As AfroTech has previously reported, she is one of the most influential women in the world who has gone above and beyond her time in Destiny’s Child. She has invested in several companies, both on her own and as part of her marriage with her longtime husband, Shawn “Jay-Z” Carter.

And above all else, she’s a devoted mother to her three children. In addition to the beautiful Blue Ivy Carter, Beyoncé is a mother to twins Rumi and Sir Carter.

In a nutshell, she’s a woman that has it all!

Take her investments, for example, Beyoncé has invested in four different companies, per Crunchbase. Plus, she shows no signs of slowing down. “Who run the world,” indeed!

Let’s take a look at the myriad of ways that the “Queen Bey” makes her money and gets good returns on her investments.

Editorial note: The net worth listed in this piece is a speculative estimate drawn from a variety of online sources.

Beyoncé: What is Her Net Worth?

According to Celebrity Net Worth, Beyoncé has a net worth of $500 million. But she is not only part of an empire with her billionaire husband, she’s also one of the richest self-made women in the United States today.

By The Numbers

AfroTech has previously broken down many of Beyoncé’s stats.

She’s the first Black woman to wear the 128.54 carat Tiffany diamond in an ad campaign. In 2021, it was reported that she generated more than $2 million in media impact value for the brand.

She has also been part of investments in several companies — including, most recently, the $31 million Series funding round for Lemon Perfect. 

And from Spotify streams to YouTube views, Beyoncé has proven that she’s always the queen.

Lemon Perfect

As AfroTech previously reported, Beyoncé was recently named as a “significant investor” in Lemon Perfect, a low-sugar lemon water brand. She was part of the Series A investment, which totaled more than $31M, but she wasn’t the lead investor in the product.

WTRMLN WTR

Lemon Perfect isn’t the first time that Beyoncé has invested in a water company. CrunchBase confirms that in 2016, she was also part of the seed round investment in WTRMLN WTR.

Destree

As AfroTech also recently reported, Beyoncé was also reportedly named as one of the investors in the French ready-to-wear brand, Destree. Rihanna is also reportedly one of the investors.

While neither has commented, officially, on their investment in Destree, CrunchBase does confirm their investment, though it wasn’t immediately clear how much was invested by either party.

Sidestep

Beyoncé invested in SideStep, a company that specializes in entertainment-based merch, back in 2015, according to CrunchBase. It was her first investment as an individual investment, and she received the exit just one year later.
