In Brief

Venture capital investment has discovered a new horizon of extensive possibilities – Generative AI. This advanced technology is rapidly gaining traction among investors as an exciting avenue to explore, owing to its limitless potential for revolutionizing industries across the globe.

In Detail

Venture capitalists’ investment patterns can help us to turn our heads to the right direction. These days the investments indicate that the future belongs to those businesses which leverage cutting-edge artificial intelligence capabilities.

In recent years, we have witnessed extraordinary advances and progress in Artificial Intelligence (AI). With the advent of Generative AI, this technology has unlocked remarkable potential that venture capitalists (VCs), entrepreneurs, founders and other stakeholders are eager to harness. Just like venture capital firms, the business community is also increasingly paying attention to the potential of generative AI applications. As a result, the global generative AI market is expected to reach $42.6 billion in 2023 and $98.1 billion in 2026. (see here)
