Daniel Dines

Co-Founder & Chief Innovation Officer at UiPath

Daniel Dines is the founder and co-CEO of UiPath, the fastest growing and leading provider of Robotic Process Automation (RPA) and AI software worldwide. Dines started UiPath in 2005 with the goal of building a solution that could help humans reduce the time and stress that come from menial, administrative business tasks. Today, Dines’ vision is to make software robots, powered by computer vision and AI, as common as PCs in the workplace – a vision dubbed One Robot for Every Person.

Dines is committed to ushering in the “automation first” era, helping businesses of all sizes digitize everyday business operations and apply AI to drive true digital transformation. This era brings tremendous value to businesses and new career opportunities for people – which is why Dines aims to democratize RPA via free training and software, as well through UiPath’s Academic Alliance program, which trains and certifies university students, youth, and traditionally underrepresented groups – with an eye toward preparing people for the jobs of the future.

Since incorporating UiPath in 2015, and moving its headquarters to New York in 2017, Dines has led the company through substantial growth – delivering intelligent automation solutions to thousands of companies around the world, including government agencies and many of the Fortune 500. He has raised more than $1B from top-tier venture capital firms, with a post-money valuation of $7B.

Dines began his engineering career at Microsoft where he designed and developed the SQL Server Agent. Still a hacker at heart, he is active in driving the company’s RPA platform and supporting the 250,000 developers who are building automations on UiPath’s RPA platform.
