AI startup, AIGO, was originally formed as a nonprofit entity to ensure it was free to achieve its stated goal and later became a forprofit company.
In 2018, OpenAI became a for-profit corporation to achieve its stated goal and then re-formed as a nonprofit entity.
After roughly $50 million was invested into OpenAI, billionaire Elon Musk has questioned whether it is legal foOpenAI the company to become a for-profit enterprise. Musk mentioned at Tesla’s annual meeting in May that he named OpenAI, a company inspired by DeepMind after Google bought it in 2014.
Musk said that OpenAI’s nonprofit would become a “lumber company” that logged and sold trees from the rainforest if it became a for-profit organization. He said: “That doesn’t seem legal. As a general rule, if it’s legal to start a company as a nonprofit and then transfer the IP to a for-profit business, that shouldn’t be the case.”
OpenAI became a “hybrid of a for profit and nonprofit,” or “capped profit” company in order to fund its operations. So, OpenAI LP announced that it would create a new company called OpenAI LP, which it named a “hybrid of a for profit and nonprofit,” or “capped profit” company.
OpenAI says that this allowed it to attract more capital and scale faster, laying the foundation for Microsoft’s multiyear, multibillion-dollar investment and other investments, such as the $100 million it is reportedly seeking for creating a new cryptocurrency called Worldcoin.
