The Romanians are coming! – Three awesome startups

⚡ UiPath is likely to be the greatest ever European venture bet.

This Romanian enterprise software company was recently valued at $35bn in its Series F funding round.

UiPath offers an end-to-end platform for automation, combining the leading Robotic Process Automation (RPA) solution with a full suite of capabilities and techs like AI, Process Mining, and Cloud to enable every organization to rapidly scale digital business operations.

Digital East, Seedcamp and Credo led a $1.6m seed round in 2015. According to some calculations this will become roughly around $3.5bn depending on what the final IPO price turns out to be.

That is what I call a HOME RUN return!


⚡ iamYiam is an award-winning leader in predictive health technology.

Combining big health data, Ai, genetics and academic research (covering >2.5 million clinical trial subjects), their app Syd™ gives employees recommendations for personalised preventative actions that head off physical & mental risks.

⚡ MeetinVR provides awesome software for business meetings in virtual environments.

The spaces MeetinVR offers are optimized for collaboration and connection as every function is tailor-made to facilitate engagement, productivity, and fun. Users can review media together (360 content, images, videos) and access tools to enhance creativity and brainstorming.
