UiPath is leading the “Automation First” era – championing one robot for every person, delivering free and open training and collaboration and enabling robots to learn new skills through AI and machine learning. Led by a commitment to bring digital era skills to more than a million people, the company’s enterprise Robotic Process Automation (RPA) platform has already automated millions of repetitive, mind-numbing tasks for business and government organizations all over the world, improving productivity, customer experience and employee job satisfaction.
Recently named the 6th happiest place to work by Comparably in the US, UiPath has become one of the fastest growing enterprise software companies in history. With a valuation of $3 billion, the company is backed by over $400 million in funding from Accel, CapitalG, Credo Ventures, Earlybird’s Digital East Fund, IVP, Kleiner Perkins, Madrona Venture Group, Meritech Capital, Seedcamp and Sequoia.
UiPath was created in 2015 on the foundation of the 10-year old Romanian software outsourcing company DeskOver, started by Daniel Dines and Marius Tirca in Bucharest. They began orienting resources into training and orchestrating software robots back in 2012, and one year later the company initiated its first RPA journeys, with Sutherland and Dell.
UiPath Academy allows thousands of people worldwide to train with the UiPath RPA Platform solution. The goal is to train one million people in RPA over the next three years.
The company’s footprint in the automation industry is acknowledged with several honoring titles: a global Leader and Star Performer in RPA (Everest Group ), and — based on superior technology — as RPA industry leader ( Forrester ). Following these up, in 2018 the Everest Group’s PEAK Matrix report on RPA named UiPath a Leader and Star Performer, making it the only vendor to receive the distinctions two years in a row. UiPath has also been recognized as a Leader in The Forrester Wave™: Robotic Process Automation, Q2 2018 in June 2018.
UiPath currently has a global thriving RPA developer community of more than 300,000 members and is well on its way to democratize RPA and support the digital business revolution. It continues to accelerate the product roadmap, particularly with innovations that integrate machine learning (ML) and AI algorithms.
