Nominations Open for D-Prize: Recognizing Aspiring Entrepreneurs from Across the Globe

Deadline: 30 July 2017

Can you design a business or NGO that solves one of the Distribution Challenges?

Nominations are now open for the D-Prize, recognizing new entrepreneurs who increase access to proven poverty interventions.

D-Prize Challenges

  • Girl’s Education
  • Agriculture
  • Energy
  • Global Health
  • Education
  • Governance and Infrastructure
  • Custom

Prize

  • If selected, winner will be awarded with up to $20,000 to launch a pilot in any region where extreme poverty exists.
  • Up to 25 of the most promising proposals will be selected for funding awards, regardless of which challenge track was selected.

Eligibility Criteria

  • Applicants should have enormous ambition, and can imagine themselves as successful entrepreneurs. Applicants are ready to launch their new venture, and – if a pilot proves successful – applicants are excited to grow it into a world changing organization.
  • A student having existing commitments 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.
  • Prototypes of promising new interventions are not funded.
