Prior to running for Congress, Joe had increased his focus on business development and venture capital. In 2005 he became Vice President of New Business Development for Advantage Futures, a trading firm at the Chicago Board of Trade. In 2007 he became a Director with Michigan Avenue Ventures, a Chicago-based boutique investment banking group specializing in early stage capital raises across industries
Elected to the United States Congress in 2010, Joe has held true to his campaign pledges and refused his Congressional health benefits and pension package. When in Washington, Joe sleeps in his office and comes home every weekend to hold town halls and meet with constituents. No member of Congress has held more town halls this past year than Congressman Joe Walsh.
