From Idea To Success with James Eder
In 2005, James Eder founded website Student Beans aged 22, alongside his brother Michael. 12 years later Student Beans has gone from an idea to a brand recognised globally for its student offers and discounts. Known today as The Beans Group, the business now also encompasses Voxburner, a youth events & insights consultancy. The company employs a team of over 50 people and continues to recruit and grow. James is also the founder of Kentish Cluster alongside Camden Cluster an initiative to bring local businesses and people together in London. James is a passionate helping people realise their potential and is a regular speaker at conferences, schools and universities on subjects including marketing, entrepreneurship and building a brand.
Building on his experiences, James’s latest venture Causr.co is all about connecting professionals on the go. Now live on both the Apple & Google Play store - being hailed as a game changer in social, an innovative way to connect with people and maximise opportunities that surround us every day.
Helping bring a different perspective James will leave you with some tangible ideas and examples of what you can do to make a difference and how a bit of innovation can go a long way. The session will include a story of the entrepreneurial journey so far as well as a number of exercises to really get you in action and thinking.
