Out-of-state venture capitalists coming to Lafayette to check out economy and community

This morning's fiber for breakfast focused on healthcare for our community.  Representatives from major healthcare providers in Lafayette described ways they are using technology broadband to provide better healthcare for our community.

"It helps to spotlight that Lafayette is moving ahead, and anybody in any community wants to feel their community is growing and getting better.  This is certainly great evidence of that," says Terry Huval, President and CEO of LUS.

Beyond that , it's grabbing attention from others.  Many out-of-state venture capitalists heard about last year's INNOV8 and came to Lafayette to see what this community has to offer, and it just so happens that Festival International is coinciding with INNOV8 this year.  Lafayette is showing their business and technology along with the arts perspective we have here, ultimately showing it's quality of life.
