“When starting a collaboration with a start-up, you should ask
yourself the following three questions: Is it the right company,
with the right technology, at the right time?” In this episode, we
catch up with Kelly Van Dyke, Director - R&D External
Innovation at PepsiCo. Her mission: Identify new technologies to
disrupt the CPG category through strategic partnerships and
