Josh Condie - The 2016 contest is on now. Microsoft will recognize the best, most inspirational and original video that showcases a small business start-up story. The grand prize winner will win $20,000, new Surface Pro 4s, and subscriptions to Office 365 for their business (up to 10 devices/seats) in addition to a publicity package.
The 2015 grand prize winner was a men’s retail clothing store – Citizen Frederick.
