A flurry of funding continues to flow into startups and those enhancing their products with ‘AI infusion’ to the tune of billions (yes, billions). Once again, billion-dollar raises and valuations are taking the front seat on many VC dockets. Interestingly, VCs are backing competitors as they keep an eye on AI in hopes of cashing out big.

“VCs used to stay away from overlapping investments and investing in competitors. That norm seems to have changed slightly as the venture capital industry became bigger, and now it looks like the AI craze has obliterated that rule of thumb completely.”- Crunchbase
