“UiPath is improving business performance, efficiency and operation in a way we’ve never seen before,” said Coatue Management founder Philippe Laffont. “The Company’s rapid growth over the last two years is a testament to the fact that UiPath is transforming how companies manage their resources. RPA presents an enormous opportunity for companies around the world who are embracing artificial intelligence, driving a new era of productivity, efficiency and workplace satisfaction.”

“UiPath is enabling the critical capabilities necessary to advance how companies perform and how employees better spend their time,” said T. Rowe Price Associates Inc. Vice President Greg Dunham.

“The industry has achieved rapid growth in such a short time, with UiPath at the head of it, largely due to the fact that RPA is becoming recognised as the paradigm shift needed to drive digital transformation through virtually every single industry in the world.”
