D-Prize Challenges

D-Prize seeds new ventures that distribute proven poverty interventions.

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 the following Distribution Challenges:

  • Health access
  • Water
  • Education
  • Agriculture
  • Livelihoods
  • Energy
  • Public services
  • Custom

We will award the most promising teams with up to $20,000 USD to launch their new organization wherever extreme poverty exists.

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 distributing an existing intervention 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.
