About the D-Prize Challenge 2021

The D-Prize supports emerging entrepreneurs and already-existing business entities that can distribute practical poverty interventions.

With so many solution-oriented products and services in the world to end poverty, and no way for millions of people to access them, the challenge caters to innovations that can solve the distribution issues. 

The challenge majorly aids awardees that have not launched or raised any funding.
