Yours sounds like an interesting case and one that we specialize in. If you entered the U. S. On a visa waiver you could not have adjusted while in the United States. Moreover, you needed to have shown that you were risking a substantial amount in the business that would provide at least 10 jobs to U. S. Citizens.

I140 is related to your previous employer. You can't work for current employer based on I-140 approval. You will probably have to start over. Sorry!
