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.
