D-Prize Focuses Social Entrepreneurs On Distributing Solutions To Poverty
Nick Fusso is the program director for the D-Prize, a $20,000 contest among social entrepreneurs to find effective distribution strategies for actually getting poverty interventions into the hands of those that can best use them.
On June 12, 2014 at 1:00 PM Eastern, Nick will join me for a live discussion about the program. Tune in here then to watch the interview live.
More about D-Prize:
Our world has already invented many effective poverty solutions. Sadly, most are not *distributed* to actual people in need. Millions of peoples’ lives would improve if they had access to proven energy, education, health, and other interventions.
D-Prize challenges entrepreneurs to solve this problem. Design a new social enterprise and share your idea in our competition. The most promising will receive up to $20,000 in seed capital to launch a pilot.
Nicholas directs D-Prize in San Francisco. He attended the University of Washington, and earned an MBA from Claremont. His background is in strategy and systems thinking, and he has been involved in several startups. He sees entrepreneurship as the surest path to sustainable development.
