Prize hope for web designer.
Nicola Smout, who has a hearing impairment, founded the Liverpool Website Design Company after struggling to get back to work and has seen business boom.
Now she has reached the final of the Government-backed Barclays Trading Places Awards, a scheme to honour those who have turned their lives around by starting businesses.
Barclays' marketing director for local business, John Davis, a judge on the panel, said: "Trading Places is a celebration of inspiring people who have struggled through adversity to get their businesses up and running - even during these turbulent times."
Business Secretary Lord Mandelson said: "Through initiatives such as the Trading Places Awards, we can honour the next wave of entrepreneurs who have overcome personal barriers, driven change and made their ideas a reality."
