Starting in 2014, the D-Prize has supported more than 200 social ventures and Non-Governmental Organizations with seed funding and has enabled them to deliver proven poverty interventions at significant scales. These interventions typically address issues related to health, water, education, agriculture, livelihoods, energy, and public services, but are not limited to these areas. The organizer reckons that its network of prize winners has cumulatively reached more than 5 million persons.
BenefitsParticipants that finish in the top 1% will receive up to a $20,000 startup grant to launch their social enterprise.
