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.
- GIRL’S EDUCATION
- Global Health
- Governance and Infrastructure
- D-Prize is for aspiring entrepreneurs from anywhere in the world, of any age, and any background.
- D-Prize will consider funding existing organizations only if: you are piloting a new distribution-focused initiative, and you need high risk capital.
D-Prize is also open to any business model (for profit, non-profit, and everything in between).
All winners will be awarded up to $20,000. The award is offered in the form of a convertiblegrant.
Up to 25 of the most promising proposals will be selected for funding awards, regardless ofwhich challenge track was selected.
- You should have enormous ambition, and can imagine yourself as a successful entrepreneur. You are ready to launch your new venture, and – if a pilot proves successful – you are excited to grow it into a world changing organization.
- If you are still a student or have existing commitments, you should have a clear idea how to transition into a full-time founder.
- D-Prize is exclusively interested in ventures that will scale distribution of an already proven poverty intervention in the developing world.
Top 5% of entrepreneurs are invited to submit a full 10 page proposal. You will have four weeks to submit.
Top entrepreneurs interview. Winners will receive up to $20,000 to launch. Final decisions expected by December.
Spend the next three months using your talent to start a venture and help millions of people.
