<p>LLC or C Corporation? As the third in its 12 week Wednesday evening series of expert presentations on elements for successful venture development, TechXel Stamford LLC, the first enterprise accelerator in Fairfield County, proudly presents serial entrepreneur, attorney, author, business professor and creator of UB Student Entrepreneurship Center, Elena Cahill. Elena transitioned from the daily practice of commercial law in 2000 to a business consultant creating turn key businesses. Ventures include Karma Tequila, Sunset Towers Spa and Salon, Educated Fitness, Educated Lifestyles and others. In 2009 Elena founded Globele Energy, LLC an energy consulting and auditing firm in the commercial and industrial space and still serves as President. In 2010 Elena started Aequitas Energy, Inc., an electric deregulated supply company which was subsequently acquired by Agera Energy in 2014. Elena is the author of “The Business of Energy,” an energy resource guide for the Management of Commercial and Industrial Businesses. Additionally Elena was first an adjunct faculty member and then in the fall of 2014 became a full time faculty member at the University of Bridgeport Ernest C. Trefz School of Business. Her creative and business drive spilled over on campus and in 2015 she created a Student Entrepreneur Center open to all students of the University of Bridgeport. The participation & growth of the center has surpassed all management expectations requiring Elena to solicit both mentors and additional financial support. Based on the support and excitement she has generated, a building is being retrofitted to become an Innovation and International Trade Center which will be open to the student population and public with an expected opening date of January 2018.</p>https://www.eventbrite.com/e/techxel-stamford-venture-expertelena-cahill-ub-venture-formationcontracts-tickets-41683834471?aff=utm_source%3Deb_email%26utm_medium%3Demail%26utm_campaign%3Dnew_event_email&utm_term=eventurl_text
