The world has already invented products and services to end poverty.

Yet millions of people still don’t have access.

Can you design a business or NGO that solves one of the Distribution Challenges below?

D-Prize Challenges
+ WATER, SANITATION, AND HYGIENE
+ GIRLS' EDUCATION
+ AGRICULTURE
+ ENERGY
+ GLOBAL HEALTH
+ EDUCATION
+ GOVERNANCE AND INFRASTRUCTURE
+ CUSTOM

The D-Prize funds pilot projects that more widely distribute relatively low-cost products and services in the fight against poverty.

We will award the most promising teams with up to $20,000 USD to launch a pilot version of your new organization wherever extreme poverty exists.

Utilize This Offer

D-Prize is for aspiring entrepreneurs from anywhere in the world, of any age, and any background.

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

The regular D-Prize competition deadline is June 22nd, 2020 at midnight PT (pacific time).
However we are offering an extension until July 13, 2020 at midnight PT (pacific time) for entrepreneurs who need extra time.

Friendly reminders:
1. Study similar calls (open and closed ones) that interest you in order to discover what they have in common and how you can think ahead/plan to apply = increase your chances of success!
2. Prepare/update paperwork (certificates and attests usually required from an organization like yours);
3. Write (baby steps...!) and discuss a project draft - to validate the priorities within your group and to train your grant writing skills;
4. Do not wait to find a call and then start writing your proposal/project. Start now!!!
5. Visit the World Pulse website >>> My Pulse >>> Resources and then use its filters (right upper corner) to find what may really suit you;
6. Share the opportunities that may not apply to you but can interest others;
7. Spread the word about your failures and achievements in grant requests. Yes, tell these stories too! They will enlighten and inspire your network.

Dear:

1. Please visit the Resources section at World Pulse website : https://www.worldpulse.com/my-pulse/resources
2. At the bottom of the page click on the SEARCH word (search function);
3. Then either enter your keywords (country, for instance) OR click/use the filters (see their list at the right side of the page);
4. Better yet: in SEARCH, type the name of your country then associate (also click on the) RESOURCE filter (at the right side of the page) and you will get a list of posted (offer and need) resources focused on your country or region.
5. You will have to choose to read those which are still open.

Spread the word.

Good work and good luck!
