About the Award: Half the world lacks access to medical oxygen – a basic and critical treatment for numerous ailments. Oxygen concentrators are machines that produce medical oxygen in low-resource settings and are being distributed at a large scale – yet without maintenance, many will soon be at risk of breaking down. Can you develop a team of technicians to service existing oxygen concentrators? D-Prize will award up to $20,000 to help teams launch an initial three-month pilot of this idea.

Type: Contest

Eligibility:

  • D-Prize is for aspiring entrepreneurs from anywhere in the world, of any age, and any background.

Value of Award: D-Prize will award up to $20,000 to help teams launch an initial three-month pilot of this idea.
