New York: For the first time a South Asian, a businesswoman of Indian origin, has been chosen to join a group of women entrepreneurs across the US to compete for the 'Make mine a $million business' awards.

Nandini Mukherjee, founder and president of Indian Bread Co, a popular Indian food chain, is one of the finalists and will compete for the award Oct 24 in New York.

Said Mukherjee: "I never imagined that I would be singled out to be the first South Asian finalist. It is indeed an honour, as well as a responsibility. I look forward to this opportunity to grow, learn from the experience, and open the doors for many more South Asian women to follow."

The 'Make mine a $million business' awards finalists will deliver a three-minute business pitch to judges and a live audience. The event will also be webcast. The winner will be decided not only by the judges and the audience at the event but also by live Internet audience.

The awardees will receive a line of credit from American Express Bank, a year of intensive business coaching and mentorship from a dream team of successful women entrepreneurs and professional coaches, and powerful marketing and technical support to promote and grow their businesses into million-dollar enterprises.
