Our world has already invented many effective poverty solutions, but sadly most fail to reach actual people in need. Millions of lives would improve if people had access to proven energy, education, health, and other interventions. Can you start a new social enterprise and solve this problem?
D-Prize is a call to the world’s boldest entrepreneurs. Can you design a new company or NGO that solves one of the distribution challengesbelow? If selected, you be will awarded up to $20,000 to launch a pilot in Africa, India, or any other developing region. D-Prize will award 5-15 social entrepreneurs funding. If your pilot is successful, we will help you find future funding and grow to impact millions.

Who Should Compete?
D-Prize is for all aspiring entrepreneurs. You may come from anywhere in the world, be any age, and have any background. You must be ambitious, a skilled leader, and ready to work hard to grow your company/NGO for years to come.
We will fund some existing organizations, especially if your organization wants to pilot a new distribution-focused initiative. If you are over 12 months old, have already raised more than $100,000, and are not piloting a new distribution-focused initiative, D-Prize is unlikely to offer funding.
