ITP Lunch 1Aviva Gibbs – founder of the Illinois Technology Partnership (ITP) – just sent me an update on the ITP’s policy lunch kick-off that I wanted to share with all of you. I think this will be a worthwhile event for all technologists, tech entrepreneurs and others who work in Illinois tech. I am going to try my best to make it and I hope you will as well. See below for details:


Technology is moving at a breakneck pace. But is public policy keeping up?

Come mingle with those in the know and get connected to the process.

12:00 pm – Lunch/Program

Petterino’s Banquets

50 W. Randolph Street; Chicago, IL

Confirmed panelists:

Brad Spirrison – Chicago Sun-Times /

The Illinois Technology Partnership monitors and assesses legislation and shares that information with our members, policy makers, and the public. By working together, we can ensure that next-generation technology will thrive and Illinois tech consumers will have access to the cutting-edge products and services they demand.

At this kick-off event, ITP will moderate a discussion focusing upon the impact of public policy on business and technology. What’s “running in the background,” and what can Illinois do, or stop doing, to make this a good place for tech.
