In an optimistic mover, Elon Musk’s xAI, a renowned artificial intelligence (AI) startup, has recently announced that it secured a whopping $6 billion in a series B funding round held yesterday, May 26. Witnessing participation from numerous investment giants, including Valor Equity Partners, Vy Capital, Andreessen Horowitz, Sequoia Capital, Fidelity Management & Research Company, and many others, Musk’s AI startup has marked a significant milestone with this colossal funding.

Since its announcement in July 2023, xAI, an AI startup, has been on a meteoric rise, rapidly gaining substantial traction and challenging industry pioneers like Sam Altman’s OpenAI. From the release of Grok-1 on X in November to the recent announcements of advanced models like Grok 1.5 and Grok1.5 v, xAI has further cemented its foothold across the global AI industry.
