Scale AI stock

Toyota, Samsung, PayPal, Flexport, and US government institutions like the US Army and Air Force use Scale AI. The company was formed in 2016, and it is reportedly valued at US$ 7.3 billion.

In January, Scale AI said that it was selected as a government-wide AI partner under a US$ 249 million deal by the Department of Defense (DoD) Joint Artificial Intelligence Center.

The company said its market-leading technology would be made available to all federal agencies, allowing them to tackle their most pressing AI challenges.

As per the official website, Scale AI has raised US$ 603 million in funding since its inception and has a workforce of 600 employees.

Bottom line

People are looking for Scale AI IPO plans and Scale AI stock as its chief executive officer (CEO) and founder, Alexandr Wang, has reportedly become the world's youngest self-made billionaire. Mr Wang had started Scale AI at the age of 19, and his estimated stake in the company is 15 per cent.

Retail investors cannot buy the Scale AI stock as it is not available on a stock exchange and only venture capital firms and private investors have a stake in the company.

We don't know if Scale AI IPO plans exist because the company has not officially announced anything. Hence, potential investors will have to watch the company's developments.
