D-Prize Challenge 2021/2022 Prize For Social Entrepreneurs To Fight Poverty

D-Prize supports new entrepreneurs who can distribute proven poverty interventions.

The world has already invented products and services to end poverty. Yet millions of people still don’t have access. Can you design a business or NGO that solves one of the Distribution Challenges below?

D-Prize will award the most promising teams with up to $20,000 USD to launch a pilot version of your new organization wherever extreme poverty exists, with a goal to serve millions in the years ahead.

ELIGIBILITY

D-Prize is for aspiring entrepreneurs from anywhere in the world, of any age, and any background. The majority of our awardees have not launched nor raised any funding.

We will consider funding existing organizations only if you are piloting a new distribution-focused initiative, and you have a need for high-risk capital that cannot be supported by your current donors or revenue.

Existing organizations applying to D-Prize should have operated for no more than 18 months and raised no more than $30,000 in outside funding.

    1. The best start in life – includes a healthy birth, and quality and inclusive early childhood education.
