The entrepreneurial duo then launched the Scale AI business thanks to an investment from Y Combinator, known for accelerating the process of promising American startups. It is simply an international company early stage funding for startups.

The new youngest self-made billionaire in the world is a 25-year-old college dropout.
About the launch of Scale AI, Aleksandr Wang said on behalf of Forbes:
I told my parents it would just be something I would do in the summer… Of course, I never went back to school.
Alexandr Wang has indeed dropped out of MIT for good after finding success with his AI-based business, and he’s now generating US$100 million in revenue. Last year, Wang’s company (he is indeed the CEO today) received investment funding of some US$350 million. This financial support, coupled with the fact that Scale AI already generates $100 million in revenue, has added value to the young entrepreneur’s business at $7.3 billion. The young CEO still has multiple plans for the future, and this is undoubtedly what has earned him the comparison to Elon Musk, who has been known to multiply projects since he was in school.
