Pressure Chamber returns for its fifth year as emerging companies again compete for the coveted “golden suitcase,” as well as a spot on the Greater Madison Chamber of Commerce’s exclusive Madison-area startup delegation to California this fall for meetings with top Silicon Valley investment firms.
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.
In its four years, participating Pressure Chamber companies have gone on to raise more than $105 million from investors, and each Pressure Chamber winner -- Fishidy, bluDiagnostics, POLCO and DotCom Therapy -- has credited the initiative for helping their company close successful funding rounds.
Access to this event is included with the Forward Pass.
