Some of Malini’s most noteworthy investments are Paypal, Sycamore Networks, and Netscreen Technologies. Two of the aforementioned companies, Paypal and Netscreen were acquired for $1.5 billion and $4 billion respectively. She created a non-profit organization by the name of “Stree: Global Investments in Women.” This organization works to change the way women and children see themselves who are considered as low income and at risk. Stree also works on the way these women and children see their roles in society. The non-profit gives these families access to legal aid, healthcare, and provide an avenue for grassroots movements to occur.

In 2004 she pledged $10 million dollars to Sri Lankan and Indian families who were affected by the tsunami.
