NVIDIA Corp. is one of the biggest names and most influential companies in artificial intelligence (AI), but many people have no idea what it does. They're more familiar with companies like OpenAI, Anthropic PBC and Multiverse.
If you're wondering where NVIDIA fits into the AI landscape, take a look at a passage from the company's website:
The recent breakthroughs in generative AI bring a new level of versatility and insights to the enterprise. Now, the world's most advanced AI platform — NVIDIA AI — brings cutting-edge advancements to every organization.

Until 2016 it was illegal for retail investors to invest in high-growth startups. Thanks to changes in federal law, this Kevin O'Leary-backed startup lets you become a venture capitalist with $100.

"We saw early on, about a decade or so ago, that this way of doing software could change everything. And we changed the company from the bottom all the way to the top and sideways. Every chip that we made was focused on artificial intelligence."
Today, NVIDIA powers major language models like ChatGPT.
Don’t Miss: Runway debris causes $4 billion in damage to the aviation industry every year. One startup funded by the U.S. Department of Defense and Homeland Security aims to solve this nuisance in a spectacular fashion.
NVIDIA's initial public offering happened on Jan. 22, 1999, and that year the stock closed below $2 per share. An investment at that time would have paid off nicely over the years.
But get this: You don't have to go back in time that far to realize that you could have made money with this stock.
ChatGPT's initial release date was Nov. 30, 2022. On that day, NVIDIA closed at $169.23 per share. You could have purchased 5.9 shares for about $1,000.
Roughly 10 months later, it's trading at $435.35 per share. With 5.9 shares in your trading account, the total value would be $2,568.56. That's a gain of $266.12 per share in less than a year.
There's no easy answer to this question, but there are analysts who believe that $1,000 per share is within reach.
For those who want to get in earlier on an AI investment, companies like AvaWatz are appealing.
