About D-Prize Challenges For Young Nigerian Entrepreneurs

D-Prize seeds new ventures scaling access to evidence-based poverty interventions. Many solutions to poverty already exist. The challenge is distributing to the people who need them most. D-Prize work identifies effective interventions, then activates new entrepreneurs to scale delivery where distribution gaps exist.

  • They will consider funding existing organizations only if you are distributing an existing intervention and you have a need for high-risk capital that cannot be supported by your current donors or revenue.
