D-Prize Global Competition 2019
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?
Many solutions to poverty already exist. The challenge is distributing these solutions to the people who need it most. Our programs produce new “distribution entrepreneurs” – social entrepreneurs who start new ventures that distribute proven life-enhancing technologies to millions of people living in extreme poverty.

ALL WORLD COUNTRIES.
- D-Prize is for aspiring entrepreneurs from anywhere in the world, of any age, and any background.
- We will consider funding existing organizations only if: you are piloting a new distribution-focused initiative, and you need high risk capital.
- 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. They do not fund prototypes of promising new interventions.
- 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).
For more information about Eligibility Requirements here
- If selected we will award you up to $20,000 to launch a pilot in any region where extreme poverty exists. The average D-Prize award size is $12,000.
- The award is offered in the form of a convertible grant.
