His fascination in space inspired a passion-driven career of building a billion-dollar rocket company. Today, Rocket Lab touts the highest launch success rate of any rocket company in history—and was the first private company in the southern hemisphere to go to space. In this conversation, he shares founder lessons on how to build an unlikely business, driven by passion.Listen to all the Wish I Knew episodes: https://www.bvp.com/wish-i-knew

    Daniel Dines is the co-founder and CEO of UiPath, a leading provider of enterprise automation software. 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.

UiPath raised $2 billion of venture capital on their way to a blockbuster IPO and today trades well above $30 billion in the public markets. In this episode, Daniel talks about the early days of being a developer, the challenges and opportunities of starting a business in Bucharest, Romania, and his unique way of leading and managing his own mindset in order to drive success for UiPath with 3,000 employees around the globe.

Great learnings shared on cloud, business-building and leadership!

I’ve thoroughly enjoyed listening to Byron interview these amazing cloud leaders. I’ve been fortunate to know and spend time with many of the guests, and I still came away from every episode learning new things. Must listen podcast for any Cloud CEO!

Good insight into Cloud/SaaS trends

As an enterprise SaaS and cloud practitioner for the past 10 years, I find the usually unheard stories of how the companies came to be very interesting. This podcast is perfect for those wanting to hear more about lessons learned with balancing VC/investor and customer needs, managing high growth, and making a mark in a still emerging area of technology.
