Can you design a business or NGO that solves one of the Distribution Challenges? If yes, then apply for the D-Prize!

- D-Prize is also open to any business model (for profit, non-profit, and everything in between).

- D-Prize is exclusively interested in ventures that will scale distribution of an already proven poverty intervention in the developing world.
