2022 has been a brilliant year for OpenAI. Launched in 2015, the structure, which is currently “profit-limited” after being non-profit for its first 4 years, wants to continue to gain momentum in 2023. Founded in part by Elon Musk and Sam Altman, OpenAI is on a mission to create artificial intelligence for the benefit of all mankind. If you have been following the news in recent months, you could hardly avoid ChatGPT, its chatbot responds to your requests.
If it still has some shortcomings, ChatGPT has nevertheless made notable progress in just a few months. That’s enough to turn OpenAI from a startup followed by a long journey in Silicon Valley to one of the most cited firms in the last quarter of 2022. The Wall Street Journal claims that to continue growing, OpenAI now wants to sell shares in the form of a takeover bid. However, in an interview given at the end of December 2022 by the Wall Street Journal, Sam Altman stated that he was not particularly interested in “IPO”.
However, it is about going much further than incremental growth, as the goal is to make OpenAI the most valuable startup in the United States, with a whopping $29 billion at the end of the line. An excess that doesn’t necessarily contrast with the colorful character that is his co-founder, Elon Musk. At the moment, the stage of negotiations has not been passed and the names of potential investors have not been leaked.
