Camron Lente founded NG Companies in 2009 at the age of 20, leaving a six-figure oilfield industry job to sort through dumpsters at rig sites looking for recyclable materials to help his clients reduce waste and save money.  After a few years of finding its footing, the company moved into construction and infrastructure focused on the same industry and has now evolved into a service and infrastructure business that serves a broad market of clients with many services.  Ben Gates is a career small business banker with an entrepreneurial mindset and a thoughtful outlook, who left behind a successful banking career to join Camron in helping to grow and evolve this nimble enterprise in the years ahead.  

This is a long-running episode with a little too much scotch, and more business twists and turns and learnings than the Poudre River has through the Canyon!  Today, Camron is a 31-year-old CEO with a high-school education, strong competitive instincts, and an appetite for risk, and NG has about 100 employees and operations in 7 states.  There's a lot of philosophy in this one too, life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness especially.
