About this event

You should take your pen and paper out for this one! 

George Roth, Senior Manager at UiPath is joining us on the 23rd of September to talk about:

  • Technology;
  • The first romanian Decacorn;
  • His path from Cluj to Los Gatos, California, where he lives now.

George Roth’s story is fascinating, and his CV is impressive.

He was a part of the first generation that graduated from the Cluj Technical High School of Informatics. In 1980, he graduated from the University Babaes-Bolyai in Cluj, the Faculty of Mathematics and Informatics, and then he moved to the US in 1991, to work as a software architect for a company that was building software solutions for investment companies.

That’s when he had his first breakthrough. He built a financial data “cleaner” (SUMS - Securities Universe Management System), which was implemented in multiple investment companies in the US and Europe.

In 1999 he started Recognos in Cluj, a company that develops software for investment processes. Up until 2018, they were working on a system that extracts data from unformatted documents using AI and NLP.

People started to take notice, so in May 2018 UiPath bought the technology along with a few employees, including George, who started working as a Senior Manager for the successful startup.

You can listen to George telling the whole story if you sign-up.

George is also very involved in the community, since the 90s. Building, offering support and being the co-founder of Romanian-American Business Network Silicon Valley. This is an organization with hundreds of members, that helps romanian businesses get in touch with US-based companies.

When you draw the line, George has 40 years of experience at the forefront of the tech industry.

And he’s ready to share with you, what he learned along the way.

Make sure you sing up, so you don't miss this webinar.
