D-Prize is dedicated toward expanding access to poverty-alleviation
solutions in the developing world. Many solutions to poverty already
exist; the challenge is distributing these solutions to the people who
need it most. We tackle this by challenging social entrepreneurs to
develop better ways to distribute proven life-enhancing technologies,
and funding early-stage startups that deliver the best results.



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