Youth Makes Some Noise

At just 21 years old, Aussie entrepreneur Jesse Costelloe, designs to satisfy his own needs

Queensland just keeps producing the goods.

A 21-year-old Queenslander is the latest to mix design skills and entrepreneurial spirit with a new range of audio speakers.

At 18 years of age, Jesse Costelloe had saved a few thousand dollars to buy an audio-system, but was unimpressed with the results. “I thought I could develop something that sounded just as good, but looked a lot better,” says Jesse.

Jesse’s ‘Oden’ range of speakers is now available Australia wide and the young entrepreneur is intending to launch a futuristic range of furniture and matching home audio systems later this year.

Under the name Evok, Jesse opened his first audio showroom at Fortitude Valley in Brisbane this year, with plans for three more.
