How do I experiment w/Azure OpenAI w/o a Company

Robert Jordan 1 Reputation point

I'm a developer & created my own personal account. I went ahead & hooked-up my credit card (& also now have a $200 credit apparently...which is nice).

I want to play with Azure Open AI. However, when I choose "create Azure Open AI" it forces me to "Request Access" (which is fine).

The problem is...that form requires me to input a company name with a company domained email address. And I dont have a personal company. This account is for my personal sandbox & I dont want any code in it to "fall under the ownership" company that I work for because I entered their information - this is solely for me.

Can someone tell me how I get access to Azure OpenAI as a plain olde person, please?
