Prize Information

        All winners will be awarded up to $20,000. The award is offered in the form of a convertible grant.

        Up to 20 of the most promising proposals will be selected for fundingawards, regardless of which challenge track was selected.

Eligibility Criteria

        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.

        D-Prize is also open to any business model (for profit, non-profit, and everything in between).

        D-Prize will consider funding existing organizations only if: you are piloting a new distribution-focused initiative, and you need high risk capital.

        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 how to transition into a full-time founder.

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

Judging Criteria

The D-Prize judging panel is composed of individuals with professional experience distributing life-changing technologies in the developing world.

Contestants are evaluated based on:

        Passion and potential for candidate’s success, as evident by their academic and professional background, relevant skills, and quick leadershiptrajectory.

        Focus on distribution. Proposals must focus on distributing a proven poverty solution that needs greater access in the developing world.

        Potential for scale, based on the organizational model proposed in the concept note and the entrepreneur’s desire to commit and grow.
