Elon Musk’s artificial intelligence startup, xAI, has successfully raised $6 billion from prominent Silicon Valley investors and Saudi Arabian royalty. The funding round, announced over the weekend, included contributions from Valor Equity Partners, Vy Capital, Andreessen Horowitz, Sequoia Capital, Fidelity Management & Research Company, and Saudi Arabian Prince Alwaleed Bin Talal along with the Kingdom Holding fund. This investment brings the company’s pre-money valuation to $18 billion.

xAI’s flagship product, Grok, is an AI chatbot designed to rival OpenAI’s ChatGPT. Marketed as a more edgy and open alternative, Grok recently made headlines for generating some controversial fake news stories.

The newly raised funds will be utilized to launch xAI’s initial products, develop advanced infrastructure, and expedite research and development of future technologies. Musk hinted at further announcements in the coming weeks.

xAI remains committed to developing advanced AI systems that are “truthful, competent, and maximally beneficial for all of humanity,” with an overarching mission to “understand the true nature of the universe.”
