Pressure Chamber returns for its eighth 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 fall. 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.
Note: As of Aug. 16, 2021, Frank Productions (operator of the Majestic) is requiring all eventgoers to provide:
- Printed or digital proof of full vaccination against COVID-19 OR
- Printed or digital proof of a negative PCR or antigen COVID-19 test taken within 72 hours of the event.
The Chamber continues to follow CDC guidelines on face coverings. As of July 27, 2021, the CDC recommends that all individuals – regardless of vaccination status – wear a mask in public indoor settings in areas of substantial or high transmission. While Dane County remains in this category, we recommend all attendees wear a face covering when indoors at Chamber events.
Thank you for your flexibility as we work to provide a safe and celebratory experience for all attendees.
