Enter to Win the D-Prize Challenge for Social Entrepreneurs

Screen Shot 2013-11-05 at 10.40.56 AMThe D-Prize is an organization which funds new social ventures. At D-Prize, they believe many effective poverty solutions already exist, but have yet to be distributed to millions. Examples include solar lamps, effective curriculum, “sugar daddy awareness classes”, and many more.
They are offering up to $20,000 to entrepreneurs who can scale up access to a proven poverty solution. 5-15 ventures each will be awarded seed capital to launch a pilot in Africa, India, or any other developing region. Winners also receive mentorship from successful practitioners, such as Kiva president Premal Shah and Sanergy co-founder Ani Vallabhaneni.
The competition just launched, and they are accepting proposals from entrepreneurs until November 30. More information, an application packet, and profiles of past winners can be found at www.d-prize.org.
