Her name is Jackie Sheller Courtney. Her startup, an online bridal boutique called Nearly Newlywed (@nearlynewlywed), was launched less than a year ago. And, she’s from Brooklyn. Courtney got the opportunity of a lifetime — to pitch her startup to five entrepreneur-investor powerhouses (Mark Cuban, Barbara Corcoran, Robert Herjavec, Daymond John and Kevin O’Leary) on the top-rated (and seriously addictive) ABC show Shark Tank.

Courtney, is Parson’s School of Design graduate and had a successful career as a fashion publicist before launching Nearly Newlywed.  She currently lives in Brooklyn, N.Y., with her husband, Patrick.

Her episode aired last week but you can watch it below. So, did Jackie Sheller Courtney represent Brooklyn well?  Is her startup a winner?
