The Young Guns Class of 2014

James and Michael Eder, Co-Founders of The Beans Group, have been named part of the Young Guns Class of 2014, a list of the UK’s most outstanding entrepreneurs aged 35 or under. This year’s crop is made up of 54 entrepreneurs behind 30 of the country’s fastest-growing firms, including those behind PROPERCORN, PayasUgym.com and Bright Young Things.  

Now in its 12th year, the awards has a track record of talent spotting, previously recognising the fledgling businesses started by the likes of Michael Action Smith OBE of Mind Candy, Holly Tucker MBE of Notonthehighstreet.com, Neil Hutchinson of Forward Internet Group, Matthew Riley of Daisy Group Plc, and the co-founders of Innocent Drinks, Huddle, YPlan, Nails Inc., Chilango, and Made.com.

“We are delighted to be recognised for our growth and our ambitions as one of the Young Guns Class of 2014. We are always looking to innovate and grow our products. This award isn’t just for myself and Michael, it is for the team around us that make things happen day today and without them this award would not be possible. The award comes at an exciting time for us as we continue to recruit for a number of roles both in London and at our new regional hub in Birmingham.”
— James Eder, Co-founder of The Beans Group
“The uniqueness and quality of entrepreneurial companies bursting through in the UK never ceases to astound. Despite the backdrop of a tough economic climate, there’s no shortage of impressive entrepreneurs challenging market norms. The Young Guns Class of 2014 celebrates the country’s entrepreneurial endeavours in all its glory.”
— Ian Wallis, Growing Business Editorial Director
