Deadline: 2 April 2018
Can you design a business or NGO that solves one of the Distribution Challenges? If yes, then apply for the D-Prize!
Applicants are invited to apply for the D-Prize, recognizing 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.
- 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.
- D-Prize challenges are open to anyone or any teams. The sole restriction is that individuals and their immediate family on the judging panel may not participate as a contestant.
- D-Prize is also open to any business model (for profit, non-profit, and everything in between).
- 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.
