IRPA AI Expands Further into Latin America with New Chapter in Colombia

The Institute for Robotic Process Automation & AI (IRPA AI) has launched an official chapter in Colombia. The chapter will be led by the recently established Digital Americas Pipeline Initiative (DAPI) in Medellín, which is a collaboration co-founded by the U.S.-based IRPA AI and local innovation institution Ruta N.

The Digital Americas Pipeline Initiative will provide this new chapter with market intelligence, best practices, networking opportunities, and other resources and guidance necessary to building a successful ecosystem, IRPA AI said in a statement. The chapter will also serve as a platform for training, talent promotion, and helping others access emerging RPA and AI tech.

“Interest in RPA and AI in Colombia is growing significantly, and people are in need of information, best practices, networking opportunities, training, technology and thought leadership,” said Frank Casale, founder of RPA AI. “So we’re leveraging expertise of IRPA AI and DAPI to launch this chapter. We’re proud to name the Digital Americas Pipeline Initiative as the lead of our Colombia chapter.”

IRPA AI and Ruta N will host a formal event to celebrate the opening of the Colombia chapter on
June 21 from 2 pm to 4 pm at the Ruta N complex in Medellín. The event will also include a working group, and space is limited to just 20 available spots (first-come, first-serve). Those who wish to attend are advised to register as soon as possible. (Registration can be requested by emailing Carrie Simon of Institute for Robotic Process Automation & AI at carrie.simon@irpanetwork.com.)

“We’re delighted to partner with the Digital Americas Pipeline Initiative and support IRPA AI with this local chapter,” said Alejandro Franco Restrepo, executive director of Ruta N. “This chapter will offer Colombia’s innovative ecosystem, development communities, startups, and AI companies a unique, go-to source for information and best practices around RPA and AI.”
