D-Prize Distribution equals Development invites applications for the Distribution Challenge Competition for Entrepreneurs Worldwide in 2022.
The mission of D-Prize is to expand access to poverty-alleviation interventions in the developing world. Even though 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.
- Health Access
- Public Services
Worth of Award
If selected you will be awarded 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. The majority of awardees have not launched nor raised any funding.
It will consider funding existing organizations only if they are distributing an existing intervention and have a need for high-risk capital that cannot be supported by their 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.
