PepsiCo Foundation Impacto Hispanic Business Accelerator

Through the Impacto Hispanic Business Accelerator, The PepsiCo Foundation is investing $10 million to provide capital and small business coaching to 500 Hispanic-owned food and beverage businesses by 2025. Hispanic-owned businesses face challenges due to historical inequalities and systemic barriers, which have been intensified by the pandemic, inflationary pressures and worker shortages.

Applications for the Impacto program will have access to business training and coaching from nonprofit partners serving business owners in their community. One hundred businesses will be selected to receive a $10,000 small business grant to support their businesses.

Applications for our 2023 program are now closed, thank you to everyone who applied! We will announce our 2023 grantees in September. Please continue to watch this page for news and program information.

The PepsiCo Foundation has partnered with four nonprofit partners to deliver the Impacto program in 10 markets in 2023. These partners will provide business coaching and training to all Impacto participants and select 100 businesses to receive a grant of $10,000 each. Find the nonprofit partner closest to you for more information about Impacto and other business support services!
