The Importance of India for UiPath

During his recent visit to India, Daniel Dines, Co-Founder and Chief Innovation Officer at UiPath, said the company’s foundation is deeply rooted in India.

The following facts support this statement:

  • UiPath’s first customer was a business process transformation company based in India called Sutherland.
  • The company also established its first office outside of Bucharest, Romania, in India, preceding its presence in the US, where it is currently headquartered.

But first of all, the reason why India is a prominent UiPath market is the country’s growing talent pool. The vendor has R&D centres in Bengaluru, Seattle and Bucharest. Currently, 20% of UiPath’s research and development (R&D) happens in India, and going forward, the contribution will only increase.

Recently, Uipath pledged to equip 500,000 Indians with automation skills by 2027. “Over the last three years, we have been able to train 350,000 across 22 states in the country already,” said Arun Balasubramanian, VP & Managing Director, India & South Asia at Uipath.

For this, UiPath has partnered with nearly 1250 educational institutions in the country and has also renewed its partnership with FutureSkills Prime, a digital skilling initiative developed in strong partnership with the IT industry, academia, and government, funded by the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology and implemented by NASSCOM.
