Daniel Dines, CEO and co-founder of UiPath, the Romanian RPA company, has shown interest in different companies lately. His investments, connected to the SEE ecosystem, are in Romanian companies and international firms with Romanian founders.

Latest investments in SEE
One United Properties, a leading real estate developer in Romania, has announced at the beginning of June that an investment company, coordinated by Daniel Dines, has acquired 5% of Victor Capitanu and Andrei Diaconescu’s shares.
The real estate company develops green residential offices and mixed projects in Bucharest. They aim to develop the middle and upper-income segment in the capital and other major cities in Romania or the region.
“Romania has proven to be an excellent hub for talents in various sectors, and the potential of the real estate industry is no exception,” Daniel Dines commented for the One United Properties blog.
One United Properties has announced its intention to become listed on the Main Market of the Bucharest Stock Exchange back in April. The two founders own 75% of the company and are the only executive members of the board of directors.
The digital healthcare startup Avi Medical, founded by a Romanian entrepreneur, Vlad Lata, has received a new round of investment. UiPath’s CEO has been announced as part of the angel investors’ pool.
The MedTech project received over €28M the first week of June to reinvent primary care medicine. The team is looking to develop co-working spaces for this niche in Europe. The project also aims to offer telemedicine, starting with Munich.
What verticals is Dines interested in
According to the startup data platform dealroom.co in the last 12 months, Daniel Dines participated in deals, totaling €69.3M. He has one unicorn in his investor’s portfolio – the London-based virtual events platform Hopin.
Dines had also shown interest in the IT niche in Germany and the Czech Republic. In February, he invested in Luminovo, a deep tech startup, based in Munich, and in 2020 he invested in RESISTANT.AI that aims to offer adaptive security for fintech solutions.
In the second investment, UiPath’s co-founder took part as an investor through the Seedcamp platform, one of UiPath’s early investors, back in 2015. He has also invested in two companies that automate the sales process for businesses and individuals as well – the US-based Spiff and the Canadian startup Dooly.
