    Anu & Naveen Jain Women’s Safety XPRIZE


    XPRIZE is an innovation engine. A facilitator of exponential change. A catalyst for the benefit of humanity.

    We believe in the power of competition. That it’s part of our DNA. Of humanity itself. That tapping into that indomitable spirit of competition brings about breakthroughs and solutions that once seemed unimaginable. Impossible.

    We believe that you get what you incentivize. And that without a target, you will miss it every time. Rather than throw money at a problem, we incentivize the solution and challenge the world to solve it.

    We believe that challenges must be audacious, but achievable, tied to objective, measurable goals. And understandable by all.

    We believe that solutions can come from anyone, anywhere and that some of the greatest minds of our time remain untapped, ready to be engaged by a world that is in desperate need of help. Solutions. Change. And radical breakthroughs for the benefit of humanity.


    An XPRIZE is a highly leveraged, incentivized prize competition that pushes the limits of what’s possible to change the world for the better.

    It captures the world’s imagination and inspires others to reach for similar goals, spurring innovation and accelerating the rate of positive change.



    ONE IN THREE WOMEN GLOBALLY HAVE FACED PHYSICAL OR SEXUAL VIOLENCE IN THEIR LIFETIME.

    IN NEW DELHI, 92% OF WOMEN EXPERIENCED SOME FORM OF SEXUAL VIOLENCE IN PUBLIC SPACES IN THEIR LIFETIME.

    ALMOST FOUR BILLION PEOPLE ACROSS THE GLOBE LACK ACCESS TO CENTRALIZED EMERGENCY RESPONSE SYSTEMS.
