The investment was led by venture capital firm General Catalyst, alongside current Mistral investors such as Lightspeed and Andreessen Horowitz. Corporate backers including Nvidia and Salesforce (CRM), media reports said.

"We were told when we started ... that this is a market that is never going to be disrupted," Mistral Chief Executive Arthur Mensch told the Financial Times. "We showed that this wasn't the case and we effectively disrupted the OpenAI business model."
