First Round Judging Criteria


  • Judging Process; All proposals will receive an initial read from at least two judges, and if advanced will receive up to two additional independent readings.
  • We strive to send decisions within three weeks of your submission. Judges may request additional information via email before deciding.

Judging Criteria

The D-Prize judging panel is composed of individuals with professional experience distributing life-changing technologies in the developing world.

Contestants are evaluated based on:

  1. Passion and potential for candidate’s success, as evident by their academic and professional background, relevant skills, and quick leadership trajectory.
  2. Focus on distribution. Proposals must focus on distributing a proven poverty solution that needs greater access in the developing world.
  3. Potential for scale, based on the organizational model proposed in the concept note and the entrepreneur’s desire to commit and grow.

Proposal Tips

  1. Be succinct. Successful proposals are objective and to the point. Orient your proposal towards an educated judge who is relatively knowledgeable with the key issues.
  2. Scale, impact, cost-effectiveness. Successful entrepreneurs will build a plausible case that their intervention is highly scalable, cost-effective, and will lead to enormous impact.
  3. Keep within scope. The most successful startups have a narrow focus and avoid spending resources on too many areas. A tightly scoped idea will perform best in this competition.

First Round Proposal

Concept Note

  • Please prepare a concept note which responds to the following prompts. Concept notes are limited to two pages. We do not read anything submitted that is longer than two pages.
  • Our team is already familiar with D-Prize challenge topics at a macro level, so there is no need to provide a broad explanation of why this is an important problem to solve. For instance, including large statistics, such as the potential global market size, is not necessary.

How does your new organization or venture idea improve distribution of your selected intervention? We recommend writing:
  • 2-3 sentences summarizing the main activities of your new organization. For example, you could walk us through step-by-step how you connect a proven intervention to people in need.

Bullet points to further explain

  • What are the main barriers that currently prevent people from accessing your proven intervention, specific to your pilot region? For example, one common barrier to accessing a product might be a high upfront cost.

How does your distribution model specifically overcome these barriers?
  • What is the most fundamental part of your new organization that you need to prove will work during this pilot program? (We think the purpose of a pilot is to test the fundamentals of your business / the basis of your value proposition on a small scale, and we want to know which part of your model you will focus on).

What is the expected impact of your work? We recommend writing:
  • 1-2 sentences summarizing your marginal impact (ie, the impact you will make compared to the status quo) at a high level, and at a individual or household level. For example, your work might reduce the rates of HIV infections by X% countrywide; and for an individual, could save 7 Days (disability adjusted life years, which is a way to measure the cost effectiveness of a poverty intervention).

Outcome Table

Over the next 3 months, 1 year, and 2 years, how many proven interventions do you plan to distribute? And how many people will you directly help? We recommend sharing this as a simple table.

  • 2-3 sentences summarizing a rough draft of how much money you need for your pilot program, and what the 3-5 major expenses are expected to be?
  • 1 sentence summarizing your long-term vision for the new organization you will launch.

Who is your team? We recommend

A Table that lists:

All of the people on your team - Their job title responsibilities - Their location during the pilot - Any other professional commitments they have during the pilot - If not local to your operating region, please note any developing country experience and specifically, any time you've spent in the pilot region.

Resumes / CVs
