On June 12, 2014 we visited here with Nicholas Fusso about the $20,000 D-Prize, a cash award for social entrepreneurs with a plan to effectively distribute proven poverty solutions. Nicholas is back to report. "During our first [interview], we talked about an upcoming D-Prize competition. We have since finished that, and found some extraordinary new entrepreneurs," Nicholas said. "We continue to see great proposals from US-based entrepreneurs. We are also excited to see a growing number of good proposals from candidates already living in developing countries," Nicholas continued. "For instance, this last competition included an entrepreneur from Nigeria." Nicholas went on to explain, “Our earlier winners are also making huge strides. Collectively they have raised over $1m after receiving a D-Prize award. They have also gone on to help tens of thousands of people already.” "We have already launched a new prize competition to find the next wave of social entrepreneurs. The deadline to apply is December 30, and you only need to submit a 2 page concept note and a resume. Come tell us how you will provide real poverty solutions to those in need," Nicholas concluded.
