About us

Our story

The root of our journey

Binqy originates from a personal experience. A dear friend of ours got into a burnout. After not finding the right help, depression followed. This resulted in isolation, which made the situation even worse. To our great sorrow, she is currently no longer among us.

After this experience, we realized that our friend was and is not the only one experiencing these struggles. It is a common and recurring problem in our society. All over the world, millions of people suffer from excessive levels of stress, burnout symptoms and anxiety complaints on a daily basis. In order to help these people, we made it our life's mission to tackle burnout (symptoms) at an early stage and help people all over the world prevent it.

Binqy founders

We started talking to dozens of experts, reading books and literature, and interviewing experts by experience. To be able to address this large-scale problem, we strongly believed that science had to be the foundation of our solution. After researching and validating with our partner Wilmar Schaufeli, we eventually were able to develop the Binqy Method.

Now, a couple of years in, with more and more people joining our mission, we are happy that we’ve already been able to help so many people and organizations foster a healthy culture where employees can optimally thrive. The positive responses and valuable feedback that we regularly receive contribute to the continuous improvement of our solution. This brings us gradually closer to a world without burnout.
