Roboyo was founded in Nuremberg by Christian Voigt, Nicolas Hess and Sven Manutiu and is now one of the world’s leading experts in Intelligent Automation. Today, the group has over 100 automation professionals, across six international locations in Europe, the USA and India, who serve over 120 international clients across a range of industries including insurance, banking, pharmaceuticals and consumer goods.
Roboyo develops new and innovative solutions to enable the automation of business processes, with its services encompassing process transformation, software implementation, managed services and a proprietary training academy. In addition, Roboyo has created its own platform, “Roboyo Converge”, which enables customers to further accelerate their automation journey.
MML continues to build its track record and expertise in technologies that will shape the future. The investment in Roboyo follows hot on the heels of the successful exit of Altius, a leading data science business, to Avanade (a Microsoft and Accenture joint venture) earlier this year. The MML investment in Roboyo will accelerate internationalization and innovation.
Roboyo’s founders noted
“We had a choice of investment partners and we chose MML because of their unique partnership approach and our shared vision on the future opportunities for the intelligent automation market. With this investment, we will be able to support more customers in more territories as a partner in their transformation into the digital age. In MML we have found the right partner to further accelerate our business and to attract the best talent in the market.”
Luke Jones, Partner at MML said
“Christian, Nic, Sven and their team have built a truly market leading business. MML has a unique track record of investing in innovative, fast growing, businesses that want our style of partnership capital to support international growth. We look forward to working with Roboyo to capitalize on its technical leadership position.”
