D-Prize supports new entrepreneurs who increase distribution of proven poverty interventions.
The world has already invented products and services to end poverty, yet the best are not being distributed at mass-scale. Can you design a business or NGO that solves one of the Distribution Challenges below?
If selected they will award you up to $20,000 USD to launch a pilot version of your new organisation in any region where extreme poverty exists.
