Fujitsu Ventures announced a corporate venture capital (CVC) fund totaling 10 billion yen, targeting investments in tech companies globally, including in Japan, the US, Europe, and Israel.
Fujitsu’s CVC fund in 2006, 2010 and 2015 made investments in promising startups both in Japan and abroad.
In 2015, Fujitsu initiated its FUJITSU ACCELERATOR program to boost co-creation venture activities. To date, the program has promoted cooperation with more than 100 global tech startups.
Fujitsu said it will make investments to bolster the foundation of innovative technologies that underlies digital transformation (DX) and to create new business opportunities, by encouraging collaboration between start-ups and the company with a deeper involvement in the FUJITSU ACCELERATOR program.
