Cool Company Awards
The Cool Company Awards were launched in 2006 as a way for Anthill to acknowledge and celebrate Australian organisations that are doing things differently to bring about positive change. Cool Companies stay one step ahead of the rest. They breed leaders who are rule-makers and rule-breakers. They are trend-setters in attitude and action. Quite simply, they are … cool! More
Company: Evolve Skateboards
Category: Micro Business
Evolve Skateboards produces an electric skateboard that transforms from street to all terrain setup, on the fly. The innovative design encases the electrical parts inside a custom designed carbon fibre/kevlar skateboard deck. The company’s designs also use double jointed skate trucks which create a deeper carve than other board designs.
Less than three years young, the company turns over more than $4 million in sales, with more than half of that coming from exports, thanks to Evolve’s totally bodacious website.
And working at Evolve Skateboards is as cool as the products they make.
“We have a very Aussie tradition of beers and pizza some Friday afternoons if we’ve had a crazy week, while someone mixes some tunes in our office DJ booth that was created on our mezzanine first floor,” Evolve Skateboard’s Co-Founder Fleur Anning recently told Anthill.
“We also have a wall filled with Instagram pics all which are found via #evolveskateboards – we’re constantly adding to this to remind us of all the cool things our team is creating and it surrounds our whiteboard of future plans.”
Cool people, cool products, and, now, Evolve Skateboards is carving it up internationally. That’s why Evolve is a Finalist in this year’s Cool Company Awards.
