An early-stage tele-health company will join the Greater Madison Chamber of Commerce in a California-bound business delegation.
Yesterday’s Pressure Chamber took the form of a head-to-head pitch competition in which five startups each had 5 minutes to tell their story. Participants were graded in part by judge scoring and in part by audience votes. The event was put on by GMCoC as part of Madison’s Forward Fest.
DotCom Therapy, a recent addition the Madison startup ecosystem, was chosen as winner.
Emily Purdom and Rachel Robinson, co-founders for DotCom Therapy, will join the Greater Madison Chamber of Commerce on an upcoming trip to San Francisco, where they will have the chance to meet with top Silicon Valley venture capital firms.
This year’s contestants were:
*DotCom Therapy, a growing remote health company which recently moved from Missouri to Madison.
Purdom and Robinson have been traveling around the world this year spreading the word about their startup, which provides remote telehealth services like speech therapy through a cloud-based platform. Purdom, who gave the presentation yesterday, says they are trying to fill a “pervasive shortage” of speech language pathologists.
