Dear Team Volusia EDC Investor and/or Community Partner:

I am happy to report that Team Volusia EDC staff continues to have a strong project pipeline with client visits to the Greater Daytona Region ramping back up again!  Currently, staff has begun a rigorous outreach recruitment schedule as some of the mission and trade shows were postponed to the second half of 2021 due to the pandemic. While we were unable to attend normally scheduled outreach events in 2020, time was not wasted.  TVEDC Staff and the Investor Development and Relations Committee (IDRC) worked closely on developing a comprehensive survey for TVEDC investors which invited opinions on all disciplines of our program of work. The results were not only informative, but energizing. Investors completed the survey that was created under the direction of Shailesh Patel, who chairs our IDRC.

Of note:

  • Survey participants included more than 60 public/private sector investors at all levels of investment.
  • Suggestions for meeting topics included transportation infrastructure, workforce, education, statewide collaboration and international trade.
  • Networking, information, business opportunities, and stewardship are the main reasons investors invest in TVEDC.
  • Team Volusia EDC’s mission is seen as growing the economy and creating higher paying jobs.
  • Overwhelmingly, investors do recommend others to invest in Team Volusia.

Thanks for all who participated in the survey and for their input– and to Shailesh Patel for his leadership on this important initiative. And please take a moment to scan this e-newsletter to see additional highlights from Q2.


Best Regards,

KNorden Signature
