Sherloq Solutions Awards $20,000 to UT Student-Entrepreneur Businesses

UT undergraduate student Brett McQuaide was awarded $10,000 in seed money to reach the beta testing phase for his new “Stir Stick” business product at the Spartan Accelerator program last Friday.

The item, which features thermochromic ink, lets people know when their cup of coffee is at the perfect drinkable temperature.

McQuaide was one of four UT student-run business ventures that had the opportunity to present their business plans to local entrepreneurial judges — all competing for a chance to gain $25,000 in no-payback seed capital.
