D-Prize Global Competition

D-Prize funds new entrepreneurs who increase access to proven poverty interventions.

The world has already invented ways to end poverty, yet the best interventions are not being distributed at mass-scale. Can you design a business or NGO that solves one of the Distribution Challenges below? If selected you will be awarded up to $20,000 to launch a pilot in any region where extreme poverty exists.

We are looking to award as many as 30 teams of entrepreneurs with up to $20,000 in funding to launch nonprofits or social ventures that increase access to life-changing products and services like solar lamps, Sayana Press, quality seeds, cataract surgery, and more. Check out all of the distribution challenges here.
