Check this out, man! Anthropic, this serious player in the game, is in deep talks with investors. They’re looking to raise a whopping $2 billion in fresh funding! And get this – just last week, Amazon committed to throwing in $1.25 billion into the mix, man. Sources close to the action spill the beans that Anthropic has also been sharing some juicy info. They’ve been telling investors that Google, who already owns about 10% of the startup since 2022, is likely to jump in on this investment round, man. Talk about a serious show of faith!
Now, this 2-year-old startup is all about their chatbot called Claude. This bot goes head to head with OpenAI’s ChatGPT, creating some stiff competition, bro! And here’s the kicker – these guys are gunning for a massive valuation of anywhere between $20 billion to $30 billion, including this fresh injection of cash. That’s like quintupling their worth since March, when investors tagged them at $4 billion. Can you believe it, man? Not only that, but their shares would be way more expensive than OpenAI’s when you compare their valuations based on revenue. In other words, they mean serious business!
