D-Prize is for aspiring entrepreneurs who can distribute poverty interventions from anywhere in the world, of any age, and any background. The majority of our awardees have not launched nor raised any funding. Interventions can be selected from any of the following categories including Health, Education, Clean Water, Agriculture, Livestock, Livelihoods and Energy
D-Prize will consider funding existing organizations only if you are piloting a new distribution-focused initiative, and you have a need for high-risk capital that cannot be supported by your 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.
We apologize, but at this time we are only able to evaluate applications submitted in English. However, your English does not need to be perfect to apply, and grammar and vocabulary errors will not be penalized. We only want to understand your idea.
We will award the most promising teams with up to $20,000 USD to launch a pilot version of your new organization wherever extreme poverty exists, with a goal to serve millions in the years ahead.
The application deadline is June 6, 2021.
