** The Institute for Business in the Global Context **
The Fletcher D-Prize funds entrepreneurs who increase access to proven poverty interventions. The world has already invented ways to end poverty, yet the best interventions are not being distributed at mass-scale. Can you design a business or NGO that solves one of the Distribution Challenges like education or agriculture?
If selected, The Fletcher D-Prize will award you up to $20,000 in cash to launch a pilot in any region where extreme poverty exists. 

During this info session, you'll be inspired by the impact you can have and learn more about the competition from the following:

Elaine Chen, Director of the Tuft's Derby Entrepreneurship Center

Eight years ago, the Fletcher School/Tufts University and The D-Prize launched a unique social entrepreneurship competition, combining Fletcher's interdisciplinary, holistic problem solving around the world's most pressing development issues with D-Prize's ability to find and fund poverty fighting ventures.┬áImagine, you can distribute a proven social venture idea, receive valuable feedback from venture capitalists, and win up to $20K in cash with additional $10K in-kind support to start your venture. And you can fulfill your capstone requirement all while doing your summer internship or making it a post Fletcher/Tufts experience that builds your business skills – all while having real world impact.
