The company representatives announced that the funding will be used to accelerate the company's rapid global expansion and product development, building on its six times growth in 2016.

Investment fund Accel Partners has been advised by law firm Țuca Zbarcea&Asociații in this transaction, being represented by lawyers Sorin Vladescu, Partner and Nyerges, Managing Associate.

Background information

UiPath builds intelligent software robots that help businesses globally automate repetitive processes by leveraging cutting-edge computer vision technology. Large organizations across every industry spend a significant amount of time and resources performing such processes across HR, finance, accounting and operations (e.g. claims handling for insurance providers, employee onboarding, back office support etc). Digitizing these processes improves productivity, accuracy and compliance dramatically, allowing employees to focus on more creative and strategic work.

UiPath will use this investment to boost hiring in order to keep up with rocketing demand for its products in North America, Western Europe, India, Japan and South East Asia. The funding will also support continued investment in product development and Artificial Intelligence capabilities, especially around its core computer vision technology. Additionally, the company will focus on cognitive capabilities enabling organizations to handle the vast amounts of structured and unstructured data required to deliver truly intelligent automation.

UiPath has built strong momentum in a short period of time, growing to a team of 150 employees. It has over 150 partners including the major consultancies such as Deloitte and Capgemini, and 200 customers globally in industries ranging from banking, financial services and insurance through to manufacturing, utilities, healthcare and government. Many leading enterprises are among its customers, including blue chip companies such as Lufthansa, Generali, Telenor and Dong Energy. The company is well positioned to conquer the global RPA market, which is expected to reach $9B in size in the next seven years.

UiPath has won top industry accolades for its technology, with the latest Forrester report on RPA identifying the company as a leader in the space, overtaking its competitors in technology performance. Everest Group also rated UiPath an ‘RPA Star Performer' for 2016 with regards to its market impact.

This investment comes on the back of increasing funding activity for artificial intelligence startups. 2016 saw a record of $5B venture capital funds flowing into AI companies worldwide, an increase of 60% compared to 2015.

"This investment will allow us to introduce the benefits of intelligent RPA to even more businesses around the world and remain at the forefront of a rapidly-advancing industry," comments Daniel Dines, CEO and founder of UiPath. "We are making work more inspiring and effective for the people that drive our businesses and economies forward, and the potential that remains untapped for organizations is what makes this such an exciting market to work in."

"UiPath is the backbone for the intelligent enterprise," Luciana Lixandru, partner at Accel, comments. "Daniel's clear and ambitious vision for the company has helped drive impressive traction in a short period of time. Many enterprises around the world are recognizing how its RPA software can make their business smarter, and yet UiPath has only scratched the surface."

"We invest in companies that impact the world around us, and UiPath falls firmly into that category," comments Dan Lupu, partner at Earlybird Venture Capital. "The rapid global growth that the business has achieved is evidence of the transformative nature of its technology. As a result, UiPath's RPA technology solutions are playing a vital role in putting businesses at the cutting edge of their industry, now and in the future."
