Morgan Stanley is reported to be the organizer of this fundraising; however, the bank has not made any official comments on the event.

xAI’s rival OpenAI, the Elon Musk popular ChatGPT maker, has secured a staggering sum of approximately $13 billion, with Microsoft serving as its primary investor.

In parallel developments, Anthropic has emerged as a significant player within the domain of large language model startups, attracting an impressive investment of approximately $6 billion. The financial backing of this project is attributed to two major technology companies, Google and Amazon.

A significant milestone has recently been achieved by xAI by Elon Musk securing investor commitments totaling $500 million, marking a significant step towards its ambitious funding goal of $1 billion. It is estimated that the value of the company will fall between $15 billion and $20 billion during these discussions.
