Microsoft has named Maria Emma, owner of a New York City EmbroidMe store, as a semi-finalist in its small business contest. According to its blog, Microsoft is striving to recognize the amazing impact small businesses have in their communities as well as to the national economy. The contest is offering a first prize award of $20,000 for the most inspiring entrepreneurial story.

“In addition to feeling honored to be considered at this stage in the contest,” Emma commented on the announcement, “I’m just so happy to be able to share my story with other business owners.”

In her submission, Maria Emma talks about opening the EmbroidMe store during the recession in 2008 at the age of 21 and how her business has grown in the heart of New York City. The challenges she faced and her persevering philosophy are featured in the two-minute video she made that appears on the Microsoft Small Business Contest’s Facebook page.
