13 Unicorns In Generative AI: The Next Big Thing in Tech

The tech world is facing several challenges right now, including a funding drought, widespread layoffs, and investor demands for profit over growth. However, one industry that doesn't seem to be impacted by these challenges is generative AI.

Generative artificial intelligence is a subset of AI that can produce original content, including music, images, and text. Although it is still in its infancy, it has the potential to completely transform a variety of sectors, including healthcare, finance, and entertainment.

13 generative AI startups have already attained a $1 billion+ valuation. Compared to the majority of their peers, these businesses are achieving unicorn status much more quickly. For generative AI companies, it takes an average of 3.6 years to become unicorns, versus 7 years for the unicorn club as a whole. The disparity between these companies' sky-high valuations and their modest revenues has grown due to the excitement surrounding generative AI. Investors are, however, betting that generative AI will ultimately become a significant force in the tech sector, and they are prepared to pay a premium for early access to these businesses.

Here is a list of the 13 generative AI unicorns (as of May 2023):
