The fourth annual event is scheduled for December 14 and available by Zoom

MISSOULA, Mont. — C2M Beta along with its founding partner, Blackfoot Communications, today announced the 2021 Showcase Event will be held on Tuesday, December 14. This year’s Showcase Event will be held virtually, opening the event up to those interested in learning more about this year’s innovation cohort, no matter their location. Named after the Blackfoot tagline “Connect to More”, C2M Beta was founded in 2018 to empower early-stage Montana and Idaho startups to drive impact and value in the Rocky Mountain region.

This year’s cohort includes four startups that offer disruptive technology experiences, positively impact the Montana and Idaho region and continue a focus on female founders. More information on this year’s Showcase event can be found at:

“The entrepreneurs involved in this year’s cohort have inspiring and passionate stories behind their startups, and this year’s high-energy Showcase event promises to be engaging and inspiring to all attendees,” said Joe Fanguy, VP, Networks and Systems, Blackfoot Communications. “The event is open to innovators, entrepreneurs, investors and business leaders with opportunities to make connections with the entrepreneurs in follow-up sessions. We’re excited for this cohort to present their ideas for solving some of today’s biggest challenges that impact businesses, communities and individuals alike.”

The Insight Studio, a Missoula-based marketing agency and Certified Hubspot Partner, has been instrumental in the success of the C2M Beta technology accelerator program.

“We are excited to introduce the greater business and investment community to the 2021 C2M Beta cohort startups at this year’s Showcase event,” said Andrew Schulz, C2M Beta Community Manager. “Former cohorts have gone on to great success in different verticals including education delivery to rural populations, facial recognition for livestock management, virtual patient care, media production, application development and more! It’s incredibly rewarding to follow these former cohort members and inspiring to see this year’s members deploy their own business models. I am looking forward to being a part of this year’s event.”
