Fletcher D-Prize 2019 Information Session: Poverty Solutions Venture Competition
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. For more details, visit: http://www.fletcher.tufts.edu/d-prize. During this info session, you'll learn more about how you can participate, brainstorm ideas with fellow students and meet the 2019 winners, Guilia Bova & Farah Momen, F'20 who launched their venture The Now Project this summer, bringing health access and choice to women in the Bangladeshi garment industry.   Monday, September 16th @ 12:30 pm Mugar 200 - Cabot Intercultural Center Pizza Will be Served!  @ IBGC_Fletcher #IBGCSpeaks #DPrize For more information, contact Maria Pereira (Maria.Pereira@tufts.edu)  If you had $30,000, how would you fight poverty? Six 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. Imagine, 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. That’s exactly what’s happening for Guilia Bova and Farah Momen, F'20.   They launched the Now Project (TNE)  this summer with $10K funding from the Fletcher D-Prize. They also won the Tufts $100k New Ventures social track competition, receiving an additional $15K in funding.  Come and hear how they are focusing on strengthening health clinics within Bangladeshi garment factories through the provision women's health supplies (starting with contraceptive access), and medical training. Ultimately, TNE aims to redefine the exchange between retailers and workers by advocating for investment into the health of people throughout supply chains. Fletcher D-Prize invites all budding Fletcher/Tufts social entrepreneurs like Farah – in any stage of formation – with support from faculty, staff, and alumni to focus your energy and talent on distributing proven poverty solutions.  This could be your summer internship, your capstone, you post Fletcher/Tufts experience to build your business skills. This could be your way to make real world impact.

About Medford, MA
Medford Massachusetts was settled in 1695 and became a city in 1892. Located just northwest of Boston, Medford is a very desirable place to live. Search local Medford homes for sale to find your next dream home and join the Medford community.

The economic history was based on the ship building trade in colonial times. Ship building was begun by Thatcher Magoun who used lumber harvested from the Fells and New Hampshire which arrived via the Middlesex Canal. After the ship building industry reached its decline printed cloth and carpets, linseed oil as well as rum and hats became the major products in Medford as did education with the founding of Tufts University in 1852. Because of its industrial prosperity Medford doubled its population every 20 years from 1870 to 1910.

To this day Medford is a well populated city in a very convenient location filled with many suburban neighborhoods. However it still retains a rich architectural heritage containing many historic sites which include monuments and houses-some of which date back the 17th century.
