Our Story

Echo was founded on the values of making a basic economic and financial education more accessible to young Australians. This stems from our Founder & CEO Chae Jeong's high school experiences where he attended both James Ruse Agricultural High School and The Scots College. Having experienced NSW's top academically selective school and a GPS private school as a boarder, he gained first hand insights into the role of education in shaping one's economic and financial literacy.

Alarmed by the disparities in accessing an economic education within Australia, Echo was founded in the midst of the 2020 COVID-19 lockdown. Since then, Echo has delivered workshops to over 500 students across the Armidale, Blue Mountains, Dubbo, Wagga Wagga and Western Sydney regions and held a conference in Dubbo with Michele Bullock, Deputy Governor at the Reserve Bank of Australia, as the keynote speaker.

Our Purpose

Echo commits to promoting economic and financial literacy within young Australians through workshops and conferences. By offering a tangible opportunity where students can hear why a basic economic and financial education matters, as well as connecting them to the nation's leaders, Echo strives to equip young Australians with an empowering experience that shapes their perspectives.
