The story of Student Beans

Student Beans was founded in 2005 in Birmingham, UK, by James and Michael Eder, named after the British student staple: baked beans. As young university graduates themselves, 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, and connect retailers to this key consumer demographic.

Quickly becoming a part of everyday student life, Student Beans revolutionised the concept of the student ID for the digital age. We launched our award-winning verification technology, enabling brands to ensure their student discounts are only available to verified students. Today, we partner with thousands of the world’s biggest brands across fashion, technology, food, entertainment and more, and power a global network of students in over 160 countries.

Our culture

Our shared goal is to offer the very best service for our users and partners, and have fun while doing it. We’re very proud of our unique company culture, which is friendly, flexible and dynamic. We live and work by a set of values that are represented by the acronym SHARP:
