D-Prize 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.

Who Should Apply for D-Prize Competition.

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. We do not fund prototypes of promising new interventions.

D-Prize Competition Challenges.

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 below?

  • + WATER, SANITATION, AND HYGIENE
  • + GIRLS’ EDUCATION
  • + AGRICULTURE
  • + ENERGY
  • + GLOBAL HEALTH
  • + EDUCATION
  • + GOVERNANCE AND INFRASTRUCTURE
  • + CUSTOM

D-Prize Competition Eligibility.

  • D-Prize is for aspiring entrepreneurs from anywhere in the world, of any age, and any background.
  • D-Prize is also open to any business model (for profit, non-profit, and everything in between).
  • They will consider funding existing organizations only if: you are piloting a new distribution-focused initiative, and you need high risk capital.

D-Prize Contest Benefits.

Up to $20,000 USD will be awarded to selected applicants to launch a pilot version of their new organization in any region where extreme poverty exists.
