Student Beans was founded in 2005 in Birmingham, UK, by James and Michael Eder, named after the British student staple: baked beans. The brothers saw a gap in the market for a digital student loyalty platform that would give students exclusive discounts on the brands they love.
Student Beans launched their award-winning verification technology, enabling brands to ensure their student discounts are only available to verified students. They have over 650 of the world’s biggest brands across fashion, technology, food, entertainment and more, and power a global network of students in over 150 countries.
Research conducted on behalf of an online student discount platform has uncovered the greatest concerns students have prior to starting their university course, with forming meaningful friendships, not liking their chosen subject and running out of finances coming out on top.
