UiPath founder Daniel Dines announced on Tuesday that his company would donate EUR 1 milllion for the reconstruction of the Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris, following the fire that partially destroyed it on Monday.
“UiPath owes a lot to France and French culture. It’s time we give something back to France. In the name of UiPath, I would like to donate EUR 1 million for the reconstruction of Notre Dame,” said Dines during the UiPath Together event in Paris, according to a Twitter post by the company.
UiPath is specialised in robotic process automation (RPA). It was founded by two Romanians in Bucharest and was the first Romanian company to reach a value of USD 1 billion at the beginning of 2018. Later, it obtained an investment of USD 265 million from CapitalG and Sequoia Capital, taking its value up to USD 3 billion. It may soon reach an estimated value of USD 7 billion.
