Apply Now for D-Prize Challenge 2020

D-Prize supports new entrepreneurs who can distribute proven poverty interventions. The world has already invented ways to end poverty, yet the best interventions are not being distributed at mass-scale.

Many solutions to poverty already exist. The challenge is distributing these solutions to the people who need it most. Our programs produce new distribution entrepreneurs – social entrepreneurs who start new ventures that distribute proven life-enhancing technologies to millions of people living in extreme poverty.


  • Significantly increase access to life-enhancing technologies in the developing world – and prove an impact in a measurable way.
  • Encourage young entrepreneurs to focus their talent on the developing world, pilot new solutions to distribution problems, and launch new social ventures.
  • Encourage a global dialogue on the importance of leveraging distribution solutions for development. They believe the path to development is through solving distribution.
