TOKYO, JAPAN & ATLANTA, UNITED STATES — Global professional services leader Accenture has invested $85 million in a Series C funding round in Mujin, a Tokyo-based intelligent robotics company.

The funding will be used to enhance the accessibility of Mujin’s intelligent robotics platform, the MujinController, to integrators and end users.

The MujinController has the capability to convert standard industrial robots into intelligent systems, thereby enhancing manufacturing and logistics operations. 

The Series C round was primarily led by SBI Investment Co., Ltd., but Accenture’s participation signals a focused investment strategy that seeks to align next-generation technologies with traditional sectors.

This latest venture into Mujin complements Accenture’s historical engagement with trailblazing technology firms, positioning the company at the forefront of the artificial intelligence (AI) and robotics revolution. 

“Accenture has been collaborating with Mujin since 2019 on reinventing the logistics and manufacturing industries with AI and robotics,” said Mr. Atsushi Egawa, the representative director and president of Accenture Japan Ltd. “Together, we will continue to help our logistics and manufacturing clients drive value from hyper-automation and data-driven management.”

The investment in Mujin aligns seamlessly with Accenture’s expansive portfolio, which includes investments in advanced technology companies, particularly in AI, robotics, and extended reality (XR). 

This year alone, Accenture acquired Flutura and Nextira to expand its AI and Machine Learning capabilities.

The outsourcing giant acquired Pollux in 2021, marking its first acquisition of an industrial robotics solutions provider. 

Earlier this year, Accenture committed to investing $3 billion in AI over the next three years, with plans to double its AI-focused staff to 80,000 through hiring, acquisitions, and training.
