Sam Altman Out As OpenAI’s CEO

On Friday, OpenAI announced Sam Altman’s departure from the company as CEO, with current chief technology officer Mira Murati as the interim CEO. This news came as the company finds immense international attention, after receiving multiyear, multibillion-dollar investments from the likes of Microsoft, among many others. Valued at a whopping $80 billion, OpenAI has made waves in AI technologies like ChatGPT and DALL-E, and former CEO Altman has been making a name for himself in the industry with investments such as in Neuralink, and organizations such as the Tools For Humanity Worldcoin project and Altman Capital. All while appearing before Congress to discuss the quadrupling of AI-related startups in the last several years. Altman’s portfolio portfolio doesn’t stop there, as currently Greg Brockman is leaving his chairman role but still staying with OpenAI, and investor Jenny Sagström of Sköna promotes building brand with customer, investor and employee needs. Meanwhile, Khosla Ventures has also been financing trends like the demand for entrepreneurially parts and refurbished gadgetry, while staying involved with the ever-changing landscape in tech industry. So far, the venture hasn’t trailed off inwake of the slowdown.
