This is a sponsored post from the PepsiCo Greenhouse Collaborative Accelerator
PepsiCo is launching its second Greenhouse Accelerator program in North America, an innovation initiative designed to support emerging entrepreneurs and brands in the food and beverage industry. The 2020 program seeks to collaborate with purpose-driven brands at the forefront of transformative trends that are changing the way consumers eat and drink.
If your company is US or Canada-based and integrates purpose into its offering, meeting the needs of current and future consumers, communities and/or our planet, apply by January 6, 2020 to be one of 10 startups selected for the program.
The selected startups will be granted $20,000 in funding and will participate in a six-month business optimization program designed to accelerate growth. The program includes personalized mentorship with experts across PepsiCo functions and from some of its leading and emerging brands, such as Stacy’s, IMAG!NE and KeVita, to help address critical early-stage business operations like strategic planning, corporate structuring and fundraising. Guidance on brand optimization, product development, supply chain management, customer acquisition and distribution will also be provided.
At the end of the program, one startup will be awarded an additional $100,000 in funding to continue its expansion, and an opportunity to continue partnering with PepsiCo to further their growth.
