WORLDS ACADEMIC OPPORTUNITIES ALL IN ONE PLACE

The global D-Prize competition

The global D-Prize competition

Deadline: 12 May 2019
Open to: aspiring entrepreneurs from anywhere in the world, of any age, and any background
Benefits: all winners will be awarded up to USD 20,000

Description

The world has already invented ways to end poverty, yet the best interventions are not being distributed at mass-scale. Can you design business or NGO that solves one of the Distribution Challenges below?

D-Prize Challenges

+ GIRLS’ EDUCATION

+ AGRICULTURE

+ ENERGY

+ GLOBAL HEALTH

+ EDUCATION

+ GOVERNANCE AND INFRASTRUCTURE

+ CUSTOM

Eligibility

D-Prize challenges are open to anyone or any teams. The sole restriction is that individuals and their immediate family on the judging panel may not participate as a contestant.

You should have enormous ambition and can imagine yourself as a successful entrepreneur.

You are ready to launch your new venture, and – if a pilot proves successful – you are excited to grow it into a world changing organization.

If you are still a student or have existing commitments, you should have a clear idea of how to transition into a full-time founder.

D-Prize is exclusively interested in ventures that will scale the distribution of an already proven poverty intervention in the developing world. We do not fund prototypes of promising new interventions.

Benefits

D-Prize is also open to any business model (for-profit, non-profit, and everything in between). All winners will be awarded up to USD 20,000. The award is offered in the form of a convertible grant. Up to 25 of the most promising proposals will be selected for funding awards, regardless of which challenge track was selected
