The PepsiCo Greenhouse Accelerator: MENA Sustainability Edition will identify and support emerging and disruptive technologies and services focused on reducing, recycling, and reinventing packaging materials. Innovation concepts could be new products, technologies, or services that help to reduce, recycle, or reinvent packaging. These could include, but are not limited to: biodegradable or reusable materials, consumer behavior modification, applications or software, operations processes, tracking technologies, and more. Innovations can be either concepts or already active initiatives that require scaling.
The PepsiCo Greenhouse Accelerator nurtures the next generation of innovators to promote positive change around the globe through grants, mentorship, and opportunities.
During the 6-month program, selected innovators will be paired with a PepsiCo mentorship team and receive an initial $20,000 USD grant to work on a new business initiative focused on reducing, recycling, and reinventing the packaging supply chain. Participants of the PepsiCo Greenhouse Accelerator: MENA Sustainability Edition program will have access to subject matter experts, resources, and a curriculum of business courses. PepsiCo experts will provide insights on research and development as well as perspectives on business models, product development, regulatory practices, market activation, and other areas. At the program’s closing event in July 2022, a panel of judges will award one participating company with a $100,000 USD prize to help advance and scale their innovation.
An external third party will review all submissions and our selection committee will choose finalists based on the following criteria:
