Become Europe's highest-rated startup

Andrei Roth
Commercial Pricing Director, UiPath

UiPath, a leading enterprise automation software company, is one of Europe’s biggest tech success stories. Created in 2015 on the foundation of a 10-year old software outsourcing company started by Daniel Dines and Marius Tirca in Bucharest, it got listed on the New York Stock Exchange in April 2021. Yet, that doesn’t even say half the story. As any start-up, UiPath struggled to achieve market fit, and did not have your typical journey to growth. Still, a few short years, UiPath created a global ecosystem of business and technology partners, has more than 9,000 customers and stands at the center of one of the biggest software automation communities worldwide.

Learn in this inspirational keynote how a successful startup thinks and acts, how local ecosystems fuel your growth and how to take in all of the success and challenges and successfully scale up.
