Pressure Chamber returns for its fourth year as emerging companies again compete for the coveted “golden suitcase,” as well as an all-expenses paid spot on the Greater Madison Chamber of Commerce’s exclusive Madison-area startup delegation to San Francisco this October for meetings with top Silicon Valley investment firms. In its three years, participating Pressure Chamber companies have gone on to raise more than $100 million from investors, and each Pressure Chamber winner -- Fishidy, bluDiagnostics and POLCO -- has credited the initiative for helping their company close successful funding rounds.


Participating companies will pitch in front of a panel of out-of-state investors, business executives and a live audience, with the winning company chosen based on a combination of judges scoring and audience votes. For more information about Pressure Chamber and to apply by July 11, visit
