Kaptel Lends Support to Economic Development Efforts


The mission of Vermilion Economic Development Alliance (VEDA) is to facilitate business development in Vermilion Parish. The organization provides a robust set of services to existing and potential entrepreneurs alike to sustain and grow the local economy. To provide those services, VEDA relies on contributions from public and private donors. This year VEDA adds local employer Kaptel to their list of supporters.

"Vermilion Economic Development has been an invaluable resource for Kaptel and many other area businesses, so we are always excited to assist them in their mission any way that we can. Vermilion Parish is constantly improving and growing thanks to their passionate efforts and steadfast dedication to our vibrant community," says Kaptel’s Marketing Director Maria Lambert.

Over the last seven years, donated funds have been utilized by VEDA to facilitate a comprehensive existing business assistance program, host professional development sessions, to support community projects and represent the parish on a regional and national level.

VEDA’s Director Anne Falgout weighs in on the impact of Kaptel’s participation, “Every dollar invested in our organization builds opportunities for the future of our community. The spirit of giving exemplified by Kaptel represents much more than a financial contribution, it represents their dedication to developing Vermilion for businesses and residents alike. We happily welcome them to the team!”
