Simpl exists to help UK organisations and councils to use challenges and challenge events, such as hackathons, to help improve public services. Hackers submit ideas on the site in the run up to any event, and the site tracks subsequent progress in relation to the idea and challenge. It was built by UK innovation agency FutureLab, Coventry City Council, and partners in 2012, after the success of its beta version, social speed-dating site, the Social Innovation Marketplace.
