Expert on Building Purpose-Driven Social & Environmental Start-Ups

Life is short. And it is about doing meaningful things, with the people you love.

Elliot Costello is Co-Founder and CEO of Phantm, Australia’s leading plastic reduction platform. For the past three years, Elliot has studied the complexity of our problem of plastics. His deep understanding has enabled him to develop Phantm’s market-leading technology that supports Australian brands in their transition away from fossil plastics to authentic natural materials.

Prior to Phantm, Elliot cofounded ygap - a nonprofit that finds and backs local impact entrepreneurs in some of the world’s most vulnerable communities. Under Elliot’s leadership as founding CEO, ygap backed and funded over 550 early-stage impact ventures that significantly and measurably improved the lives of 1.1 million people living in poverty. The organisation successfully fundraised over $20M AUD.

Elliot is also the founder of three other successful social enterprise businesses in different industries and two international fundraising campaigns, including the Polished Man Campaign, which has raised millions of dollars while engaging hundreds of thousands of men around the world to take an active stand against gender-based violence.
