The Greenhouse Accelerator is a PepsiCo initiative to accelerate sustainable, breakthrough innovations
The collaborative accelerator program is designed to nurture the growth of emerging and sustainable brands in the food and beverage sector. We seek to identify breakthrough start-ups that will receive funds and partner with PepsiCo experts to help grow their businesses.
Participants receive an initial $20,000 USD grant to support operations and help launch or scale their innovation. At the end of the program, one participant will be offered a $100,000 grant.
Greenhouse Accelerator mentors and subject matter experts provide guidance to innovators across all aspects of business development.
PepsiCo’s business development team helps identify market and partnership opportunities to accelerate growth.
Since 2017, PepsiCo Greenhouse Accelerators have included 50 companies and over 90 mentors across multiple continents and focus areas.
Greenhouse Accelerator programs have spanned the United States, Middle East and North Africa (MENA), Europe and Sub-Saharan Africa (ESSA), and the Asia Pacific (APAC) region, as well as Hispanic owned and focused companies.
