Pressure Chamber returns for its seventh year as emerging companies again compete for the coveted “golden suitcase,” as well as a reserved spot in the Chamber’s exclusive Greater Madison startup meetings with top Silicon Valley investment firms this October. Participating companies will pitch to a panel of out-of-state investors, business executives and a virtual audience, in compliance with physical distancing best practices and government guidelines.
Past Pressure Chamber winners have credited the initiative for helping their company close successful funding rounds. Participating companies have included EatStreet, Propeller Health, Redox, Datica, Fetch Rewards, HealthMyne, Cardigan, AkitaBox, Moxe, American Provenance, LÜM, DotCom Therapy, Fishidy, bluDiagnostics, POLCO and more.
Pressure Chamber is about highlighting the best of Greater Madison’s startup scene and enhancing the economic connection between two of the fastest-growing technology job creators in the country. This year’s competition will again showcase Greater Madison’s thriving entrepreneurial ecosystem and give our community an up-close look at the innovative ideas driving the future of our economy.
Pressure Chamber is again held during Forward Festival, an eight-day celebration of entrepreneurship and innovation in Madison.
