D-Prize seeds new ventures that distribute proven poverty interventions inviting entrepreneurs to submit radical ideas that can end poverty.
The world has already invented products and services to end poverty. Yet we have found many proven interventions with large delivery gaps. Millions of people still don’t have access to basic poverty-fighting tools.
Can you design a new business or NGO that delivers a proven poverty intervention at scale?
Submit your design for a new organization that solves one of our Distribution Challenges below. D-Prize will award the most promising teams with up to $20,000 USD to launch their new organization wherever extreme poverty exists.
Proposals wanting an early decision are due by October 16 at midnight PT (Pacific Time). The regular deadline is November 6 at midnight PT. We are offering a limited extension for applicants who need extra time beyond the regular deadline.
