The D-Prize Challenge for Social Entrepreneurs 2020 ($20,000 Fund)
The world has already invented products and services to end poverty, yet the best is not being distributed at mass-scale. D-Prize is funding social entrepreneurs who can design a business or NGO that solves girl’s education, agriculture, energy, global health, education, governance or infrastructure.
D-Prize expands access to poverty-alleviation interventions in the developing world by funding new entrepreneurs who increase access to proven poverty interventions. The challenge encourages young entrepreneurs to focus their talent on the developing world, pilot new solutions to distribution problems, and launch new social ventures.
Many solutions to poverty already exist. The challenge is distributing these solutions to the people who need it most. Their 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.
If selected D-Prize will award you up to $20,000 to launch a pilot in any region where extreme poverty exists.
- Aspiring entrepreneurs from anywhere in the world, of any age, and any background.
- Existing organizations only if: you are piloting a new distribution-focused initiative, and you need high-risk capital.
