Bryant Bertrand, the Co-Founder & CEO of Ronin, was always inspired by the adventures of super heroes like Batman and the gadgets he used. So, after working a number of years in the rescue industry designing hoists and winches for rescue helicopters, he drew upon his inspiration from Batman to bring one of his most famous gadgets to life with the goal of revolutionizing recreational ascension.
His creation, the Ronin Lift personal rope ascender, represents that dream of creating a product anyone can use to solve the problem of vertical ascension, transforming a normally challenging task into the effortless feeling of superhero.
When Bryant is not running Ronin, he enjoys fishing, hunting, backpacking, snowboarding, and generally any activity that gets him outdoors with some friends and some beer!
On this episode, we learn how Bryant’s childhood shaped his love for the outdoors and how he manifested his dreams of being a superhero into starting Ronin!

Richard’s vision is to build Gravity into a world-class aeronautical engineering business, challenge perceived boundaries in human aviation, and inspire a generation to dare ask ‘what if…?’.
On this episode, we learn how Richard Browning’s childhood shaped his career and how the early days inventing with his father inspired the journey to create the first ‘Iron Man style’ flight system.
