A venture studio subsidiary of Fujitsu Limited.

Fujitsu Launchpad is a Tokyo-based venture studio subsidiary of Fujitsu Limited. As a corporate venture studio, we act as an institutional cofounder by proactively investing in and building ventures from an initial idea stage. We create new ventures from zero, with the goals of achieving product-market fit, growing profitable new businesses, and delivering outsized returns on investment. We are currently incubating ventures across a variety of regions and sectors, including AI-enabled B2B SaaS tools, an IoT consumer application, and a sports training/community platform.

Small but diverse team

Fujitsu Launchpad is a small but diverse team of startup operators and investors. As a core team, we have collectively managed or overseen >$500M in startup investments. We have led strategy, product development, operations and sales in high performing startups, scaling to 10M+ users.

Make a big impact on product and tech

You’ll have an opportunity to have an outsized impact on product and technical direction, both at the venture-level and at the studio-level. At the venture level, we build from zero, fully in-house. Engineers will work in small teams to build and grow products, making foundational technical decisions while contributing to cross-venture technical strategy and processes.

Multiple growth paths available

Some engineers will grow into team lead roles as our technical team scales. Other engineers might love building MVPs from scratch, and might move between ventures, exploring different technologies and challenges. Other engineers might really enjoy working on a particular venture and could even consider spinning out with that venture team at the time of exit.

Best of the startup and corporate world

This is an opportunity to work in a results-driven startup environment, with corporate backing and job security. Launchpad has structured an environment in which we can operate efficiently and drive real results and customer impact with a high performing team. That being said, we can offer more competitive salaries than is typical for early-stage venture building work, and we can stay focused on the work itself rather than worrying about funding.


Remote Work

We offer a remote-friendly culture (we have a co-working space in Toranomon Hills, Tokyo; in-person attendance is optional). Working remotely from outside Japan is an option, although we do have a preference for nearby time zones.


We offer every team member 20 days of paid leave per year, plus all national holidays the country in which they reside (whether Japan or elsewhere).

Working Hours

We don’t have an official policy yet, but rather operate as an objective-driven team in which people can choose their working hours, as long as they are meeting objectives. We do expect everyone to work at least 40 hours per week, but we are flexible and mindful of people’s family commitments and other obligations outside of work.

Relocation Support

We’re open to overseas developers looking to relocate. We can sponsor visas if needed.
