Link to Apply:

The competition aims to support organizations in any low-or-middle income country where extreme poverty still exists.

Grants of up to $20,000 are awarded to entrepreneurs launching new organizations. The seed support is meant to be the launching point for your organization that grows to a large scale.

Who Should Apply?

  • 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.


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

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

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

  • You are not competing against other applicants. At least 15 proposals per competition, regardless of which challenge track was selected are funded.

Submission Policies:

  • Proposals must be written in English. However, your English does not need to be perfect to apply, and grammar and vocabulary errors will not be penalized.

  • Proposals must be submitted following the instructions in this packet.

  • Extra material outside of the proposal will not be considered.

  • Revisions to proposals after submission will also not be considered.

  • Only one proposal per person or partnership will be considered.
