About the project Edit

The SIMPL platform can support the startup of new citizen projects by facilitating the relationship between public bodies and innovative social projects leaders.

Themes

In what ways is this project unique and creative? Edit

Simpl is a social innovation hub (social innovation marketplace) which aims to forge ties between citizens with innovative ideas and public agencies.

Forging these ties can facilitate starting up projects with the help of financial resources, as well as, office space, human resources, expertise, references, space on their servers, and any other resource at the government's or community's disposal.

The Simpl platform is distinguished by its bidirectionality. On the one hand, innovators can submit their ideas on the platform by specifying what their needs are in terms of resources. In this case, public agencies can support the project by proposing solutions.

On the other hand, Simpl also provides public agencies with the opportunity to present problems to users, by inviting them to put forward potential solutions. The platform makes it possible for individuals to communicate their innovative ideas to government authorities, but also to the public sector so they can share their expertise with the public.

What is the social value of this project? Edit

The SIMPL platform makes it possible to offer social innovators resources that are not strictly financial, contrary to most platforms of this type.

While recognizing the need for public funds to implement innovative projects, Simpl is founded on the principle that more public funding should be allocated to projects where there is a history of public collaboration between non-monetary citizens (personal loans, office space, etc.).

What is the potential of this project to expand and develop? Edit

The platform was designed for Britain and the United States, it could be translated and adapted for other regions and communities around the world, using the same principle and the same value proposition.
