In 2012, I created a series called “Upstarts” in which reporters profile Wyoming entrepreneurs. This was the first in the series. It’s a self-narrated profile of a high-end custom rifle maker in Laramie.
“Now we’ll play the first installation of a segment we’re calling “Upstarts”. It’s an occasional series where we profile Wyoming entrepreneurs and explore what makes them – and their businesses – tick. Wyoming Public Radio’s Rebecca Martinez spoke with 38-year-old Nathan Heineke, owner of N.L. Heineke Incorporated, where he designs and builds upscale custom hunting rifles in Laramie. He started his business eight years ago, and business is good but, he says it could be a while before he starts to see a profit.”
