GRANT ALERT :- Applications invited for new ventures that distribute proven poverty interventions

D-Prize seeds new ventures scaling access to evidence-based poverty interventions.

Many solutions to poverty already exist. The challenge is distributing to the people who need them most. Our work identifies effective interventions, then activates new entrepreneurs to scale delivery where distribution gaps exist.

Last date of Application :- 16 October 2022

Purpose :-

The world has already invented products and services to end poverty. Yet we have found many proven interventions with large delivery gaps. Millions of people still don’t have access to basic poverty-fighting tools.

Can you design a new business or NGO that delivers a proven poverty intervention at scale? Submit your design for a new organization that solves one of our Distribution Challenges below. We will award the most promising teams with up to USD 20,000 to launch their new organization wherever extreme poverty exists.
