Senator Heather Steans Joins IVCA Public Policy Roundtable

June 10, 2015

As part of our continuing series of conversations with Illinois government officials, IVCA hosted a webinar on Thursday, June 4th, 2015 with Senator Heather Steans whose district is along the lakefront on the North Side of Chicago and includes Uptown and a portion of Evanston.

Senator Steans is uniquely positioned to discuss current Illinois issues of budget and education and how they affect the venture capital and private equity industry.  Senator Steans’ father and sister are private equity investors and she has been at many family meals where our industry have been discussed.  Senator Steans has worked as a former budget director, Wisconsin Department of Industry, Labor and Human Relations and as a former strategic planner for Chicago Public Schools

The conversation with IVCA Government Affairs Consultant Dave Stricklin was focused and provides insights on key budget issues and how they might be addressed over the coming months.
