Top 5 VC Deals of the Week in AI (5/9/24)


This week we continue our series on the top 5 VC-funded deals in AI.

This week we, once again, have a $1B USD raise (we did two weeks ago as well), and generally, we saw this same funding arc when we watched venture dollar amounts rise (and more recently fall) for fintech in our fintech VC series.
