CHEYENNE – Seven weeks ago, five Wyoming businesses with big ideas began the gBETA pre-accelerator program – meeting with industry leaders from around the world and learning how to grow their company and market to investors.

It was the first time gBETA came to the state of Wyoming, which has typically been known as a “flyover state” in the tech and startup world. But at the first gBETA pitch night Thursday, Wyoming’s future in the technology industry looked bright, in part thanks to a Microsoft TechSpark sponsorship that sponsored the program.
