Our Story

This Is How Openjourney
Was Born

April 3, 2023...

On that legendary day, Openjourney was born as a part of our research project. Our co-founders are from Sri Lanka, USA, Protugal, and Australia, and we are all a small group of curious computer science students who love everything about AI. We started Openjourney as a small closed project, but after seeing the restrictions on accessing general-purpose AI for the public, we decided to launch Openjourney to the public as a Discord bot.

And here we are! With over 150K+ users and over 8000 servers across Discord in less than a year, we are really appreciative of all the donors and Patreon supporters who helped us to keep this project free and alive for this long. Thank You!
