Meet Mathew Jenkins of Praetorian Ventures in Huntington Beach

Today we’d like to introduce you to Mathew Jenkins.

So, before we jump into specific questions about the business, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story.
After nearly twenty years in the security sales and consulting market, I found myself traveling 75 percent of the time covering North America. I was making great money, but I was never home and was missing moments. In the fall of 2015, I decided to start my own company. As a Coast Guard Veteran, I wanted to get into an industry that was focused on helping veterans. I have always loved weapons so starting a business making improvised weapons was a natural fit,

We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
Owning a small business is a challenge. The largest challenge we have faced is that weapons are not popular in all circles. There are some companies that do not want to associate with weapon manufactures.

So, as you know, we’re impressed with Praetorian Ventures – tell our readers more, for example what you’re most proud of as a company and what sets you apart from others.
Praetorian Ventures does have several divisions. We offer consultation, representation and weapon products. We do the through field representation as well as online and social media. We represent several prominent manufactures in the firearm industry as well as offer a full line of our own products. We are best known for making improvised weapons from baseball bats. We make a replica of Lucille from the hit show The Walking Dead. We are also known for our parody videos that we make to promote products and poke a little fun at the world that social media has become. What sets us apart is we do things differently, we do not think like other companies. We also pride ourselves of our fanatical customer service.

So, what’s next? Any big plans?
We are releasing an entire lifestyle brand of products to include Coffee, Beard Oil and grooming products. We are also hoping to get our custom products placed in movies.
