Sam owns shares in many companies, but has chosen not to take any of OpenAI. Despite that, will he still find a way to personally and substantially benefit from OpenAI's success?


Things that would not count: OpenAI making the world a better place, Sam's life being fun and fulfilling due to running the company, Sam having many high-status partners.

Things that would count: Finding a way to use OpenAI to 2x the value of one of his large investments (e.g. turning $400m into $800m), leveraging his experience running the company into a powerful political career, paying himself a $100m+ salary, Sam marrying into a multibillion dollar fortune that seems to be happening because of his experience with or control over OpenAI.
