D-Prize Social Venture Competition

Jump to Comments

The application deadline for the D-Prize social venture competition is on December 10th!

According to the folks at D-Prize, the world has already invented a lot of ways to combat poverty, but the best interventions struggle to ever be distributed at mass-scale. This competition is meant to identify business or NGO designs that solves one of their Distribution Challenges.

What’s the prize? Up to 30 social entrepreneurs will be awarded up to $20,000 to launch a pilot in any region where extreme poverty exists.

Who should apply? 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.

Yea, but I’m a student… Don’t worry! If you’re still a student or have existing commitments, you should be able to share a clear idea how you would 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. They do not fund prototypes of promising new interventions

Join the competition today by filling out the 2017 application packet.
