You need to focus your idea around one of the two following scenarios:

1- Coming up with an idea using a new low cost technology that would allow the collection, recycling & the profitable commercialization of plastic waste in emerging markets without the use of child labor or create a hazard to humans.

2- Creating a business model to develop products in our food and beverage categories that are scalable, financially viable and minimize or eliminate plastic packaging.

  • The top 2 winning teams will receive a grant of $100,000 to bring their ideas to life for PepsiCo, and will be offered a job (or internship) at PepsiCo in their country/region

But that’s not all….
