D-Prize Distribution equals Development is inviting applications for the Distribution Challenge Competition for Entrepreneurs Worldwide in 2021.
The mission of the D-Prize expands access to poverty-alleviation interventions in the developing world. Many solutions to poverty already exist. The challenge is distributing these solutions to the people who need it most. Their Programmes produce new “distribution entrepreneurs” – social entrepreneurs who start new ventures that distribute proven life-enhancing technologies to millions of people living in extreme poverty.
- Girls’ education
- Global health
- Governance and infrastructure
Worth of Award
If selected they will award you up to $20,000 USD to launch a pilot version of your new organization in any region where extreme poverty exists.
- D-Prize is for aspiring entrepreneurs from anywhere in the world, of any age, and any background.
- They will consider funding existing organizations only if: you are piloting a new distribution-focused initiative, and you need high-risk capital.
