In 2022, the Nasdaq 100, a stock index dominated by the biggest tech companies, lost a third of its value, plunging 33% in a massive wipeout of wealth built up over the past decade.

"VCs (venture capital firms) are competing for access to hot AI deals, shunning unprofitable conventional software companies," said PitchBook analyst Brendan Burke.

"AI startups experience founder-friendly conditions that don't extend to the rest of the tech ecosystem." About $12,5 billion in investment has gone into AI startups this year so far, compared to just $4,5 billion invested in the sector in all of 2022, Burke said.
