In June 2020, Mountain Dew announced the Real Change Opportunity Fund as a solution to combat the wealth gap that exists due to systemic racism in our country. The Real Change Opportunity Fund was designed to help Black entrepreneurs who are current students or recent alumni from Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs), with existing PepsiCo relationships, turn seedlings of ideas into businesses or scale existing ventures.
