Our society has invented many effective poverty solutions. Sadly, most of these fail to leave the design lab and factory to reach actual people in need. If we have already created solutions, why does poverty still exist?
The world needs entrepreneurs who can distribute proven poverty solutions in the developing world. Can you figure out a better way to distribute a solar lamp, or vaccine, or any other proven poverty solution to people in need? Pitch your idea to solve one of the challenges below. If selected, the Fletcher School will award up to $20,000 to pilot your new venture in Africa, India, or another other developing region.
The Fletcher D-Prize is open to all Fletcher students, alumni, and Tufts undergraduates.
At least one person on your team must be a current student or a graduate of the Fletcher School. Contact Rocky Weitz, Entrepreneur Coach, if you need matching assistance.
