On this episode of the Ottawa Entrepreneurs Podcast, Pat hosts Carley Schelck, the Co-Founder of The Urban Element.
Living passionately with the attitude of ‘all things food’, Carley has always been inspired by the creativity and challenges that the hospitality and food industry presents. Carley brings over 25 years of hospitality, food, beverage and hotel management to the table, combining her personal culinary passions with her business degree to create an event venue that satiates both foodies and wine aficionados alike.
The Urban Element, launched by partners Carley Schelck & Oliver Schelck in 2005, was created with a vision to foster a passionate team of food professionals to deliver exceptional, unique and one-of-a-kind culinary event experiences in an inspiring environment. Carley spends her time between The Urban Element and being on campus, growing her mandate of bringing healthy wholesome and from-scratch foods to institutional settings. From hiring and managing a team of 30 + employees to planning menus, corporate sales, marketing and public relations – every day is a new opportunity, and she embraces it with passion and optimism!
