There are proven ideas to alleviate poverty all across the globe.
Can you distribute them to the people most in need?

IBA is proud to be a member of NYU/D-Prize Global Social Venture Competition Consortium. Cutting-edge universities around the world have joined together to conduct their own intra-school competitions and support their students' efforts to scale sustainable, proven poverty solutions in the developing world. The consortium does more than provide students a chance to launch a world changing venture. It also pools university resources, encourages shared value and curriculum, and multiplies the power of each university.

The world has already invented ways to end poverty, yet the best interventions are not being distributed at mass-scale. If you are an IBA student with an idea to increase access to a proven poverty solution, this is the opportunity for you. Pitch your idea to solve one of the Distribution Challenges below, along with your plan to implement your idea with a new sustainable, scalable social venture. If selected, we will award up to $10,000 to pilot your new venture in a developing region this summer.
