D-Prize seeds new ventures that distribute proven poverty interventions

The world has already invented products and services to end poverty. Yet there are many proven interventions with large delivery gaps. Millions of people still don’t have access to basic poverty-fighting tools.

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

They 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.
