    Investors are so horny for AI that they’ve invested $175mn in OpenAI’s VC fund

    ChatGPT parent OpenAI — might be owned by a non-profit, but it’s shown some serious human intelligence in finding ways to squeeze money out of the hype it has helped stir. The main way was obviously a complicated $10bn investment from Microsoft, but that was over multiple years and mostly paid for with computing power to fuel its chatty bots, rather than cold hard cash. Per the filing, OpenAI has now raised $175,250,000 from 14 investors for its fund to invest in start-ups, compared with an initial target of $100mn when it launched (with Microsoft backing) in 2021.
