welcome My name is Nicole Swartz. I'm an entrepreneur and attorney. I collaborate with female entrepreneurs on starting and growing successful companies. I work with some of the best apothecary, apparel, stationary, housewares, and gourmet brands in the market today. I founded my first company, an apothecary brand named Dolly + Delilah, in my mama’s kitchen. Within a year, I grew this side hustle into a successful company with national press coverage, worldwide distribution, and a thriving bottom line. I'm also a corporate attorney. I graduated from Tulane Law, was published in top law journals, and worked with the geniuses over at The Walt Disney Co., to launch and grow their new brands. In 2015, I combined my business + legal skills and launched Sprout as my way of investing in our entrepreneurial community. I created these resources because I know exactly what it takes to build a successful company, and I want to help female entrepreneurs make it happen. Through these pages, I invite you to learn more about me and my work with female entrepreneurs. Nicole Swartz, Attorney + Owner Sprout Law
