“Herculean, that’s how I feel today”. That’s the key message we give to our fans. We energise people.
More than a decade ago, Yves Vekemans – multisporting mathematician – started a ridiculous journey. He got a heart attack, left his high profile job, became a hard working entrepreneur and transformed his insane dream into reality: Hercules Trophy is now the coolest corporate challenge on the planet and has thousands of fans all over the world.
Inge Van Belle – multilanguage speaking lawyer – joined him along the way, married him on a tropical beach, left her high profile job and together they raise 3 adorable kids and run the Hercules Trophy worldwide.
They built a great team with amazing, hardworking people and without realizing it, they became an example to many fans. In 3 years time, in the middle of the biggest recession every seen, they launched the Hercules Trophy in Africa, Middle East and USA!
One day, the couple launched “Herculean, that’s how I feel today“. The Herculean lifestyle became reality. Based on a Mantra and Herculean Values they want to bring people together and make the world a better place. They changed the holding company to a coop to become social entrepreneurs. They hope that one day, thousands of fans will become cooperatives and join the conversation to make the world a better place.
Inge launched the Herculix Foundation. A non for profit that wants to inspire the fans to bring social change through sports. The foundation is now being integrated in every Hercules Trophy event.
Yves launched the Hercules Academy to help people lead a Herculean Lifestyle. With the help of true Olympians they developped a methodology and coach people to lead a more Herculean life.
Hercules Projects started because so many customers asked us to transform our Sportainment know how into successful active projects. From Hercules Projects, new formats are being created. The Ladies Games and the Pink Ladies Games, for active women who care, are some of the examples.
In the meanwhile they are co-writing a book on the Herculean Lifestyle as an entrepreneurial couple and want to share the book on this platform to get feedback.
