Wyoming tests highway tech to
save lives, boost commerce

Wyomingites like to describe our state as one small town with some extremely long roads. It’s a fair description, with an entire state population dwarfed by large cities and long, lonely stretches of highway navigated by more antelope than humans.

The relationship between highways and commerce in the United States is well-recognized. Safe, fast and reliable highways enable regional manufacturing and agriculture; allow for longer commutes, which opens up a larger pool of potential employees; and open routes for travel and tourism from coast to coast.

Great Ideas: The Brunton Axis Transit 

From the time she was a geology student to when she was a college geology teacher in Durango, Colo., Lauren Heerschap – like just about every other field geologist – used the Brunton Pocket Transit for taking measurements out in the field.  

It's a surveying tool field geologists have used since it was invented in 1894, she said, but it was high time for an upgrade. // READ STORY

Startup Grants

Business Council accepting startup grant applications

The Wyoming Business Council launched applications this week for two new grant programs aimed at helping startups in Wyoming thrive.

The programs are an outcome of economic diversification legislation passed in the 2018 Wyoming legislature, one of several bills proposed based on recommendations of the ENDOW (Economically Needed Diversification Opportunities for Wyoming) executive council. They aim to build Wyoming’s entrepreneurial ecosystem and achieve goals established in ENDOW’s 20-year diversification plan.  // READ STORY
