  • Brands and digital R&D: PepsiCo10

    by Tracy Kobeda Brown

    More than ever, brands are getting into the digital innovation game – and not just the technology and electronics companies we’ve come to expect. It comes down to the new ways brands are participating in digital innovation, how they’re supporting it, and why is it imperative that they do so. This flash panel uses PepsiCo10, an “innovation incubator” that sought to pair start-ups with brands, as a case study and discussion starter on the topic.
