Mark HessenKeynote Speaker: Mark Heesen, National Venture Capital Association
For more than two decades, Mark Heesen has advocated for the venture capital industry, entrepreneurship and innovation, first as NVCA’s head of public policy and, since 1999, as the Association’s president. 

Under his leadership, the NVCA has grown in both scope and scale, broadening its public policy agenda, expanding its research initiatives and adding member programs.  By providing strategic direction for the NVCA professional staff and managing a board of more than two dozen venture capital practitioners, Mark sets the legislative and regulatory agenda for issues relating to information technology, life sciences and clean technology investing. 

Mark has successfully led the NVCA through Dodd-Frank financial reform, threats to established tax policies, SBIR re-authorization and patent reform.  He continues to work with his staff to improve the FDA regulatory approval process, highly skilled immigration policy, and energy reform.  A staunch advocate for policies that support America’s entrepreneurial ecosystem, Mark supports funding for basic research and ongoing incentives for long-term investment in start-up companies.

As the primary spokesperson for the venture capital industry, Mark is often called upon by the financial media, NVCA members, limited partners, and regional associations to offer insights and perspectives on trends and developments occurring within the asset class.  He is a frequent presenter at industry conferences, a familiar and trusted source in news articles focusing on the venture industry and a recurrent guest on financial broadcast news programs.
