61. Building the American Dream One Pocket Watch At a Time with RT Custer Bullpen Sessions with Andy Neary

    • Sports

This week I'm kicking off a 4-part series highlighting local Fort Collins entrepreneurs making a big impact in the community.  This week I sit down with RT Custer, Co-Founder and CEO of Vortic Watch Company.  Vortic Watch Company is preserving American history one pocket watch at a time.  They are the "craft brewer" of the watch industry.  In this episode, RT talks about his childhood growing up in an entrepreneurial family.  In fact, it was his father you told him "you can do anything you put your mind to".  This mindset has helped RT in SO many ways, from the ups and and down of running a small business (which we dive into) to taking on the largest watch company in the world.  We also discuss an amazing initiative Vortic Watch Company runs every Fall called the Military Edition, where they take pocket watches originally manufactured for the United States Air Army Corps, turn them into limited edition wrist watches, and make them available to the public on Veterans Day.  RT and his Co-Founder, Tyler, are making a big impact on Fort Collins entrepreneurs and I'm excited to share their journey with you.
