Before starting OpenAI, Altman was the president of the venture capital company Y Combinator which helped launch various big brands such as Airbnb, Reddit, Twitch, and many more. Altman and Musk teamed up with legendary Silicon Valley investor Peter Thiel and LinkedIn co-founder Reid Hoffman and pledged $1 billion toward the project.
