Michael Williamson, a senior Finance major, was awarded runner up in his category for his venture Sentri Performance at the finals of the University Start-Up World Cup, held Friday, October 7 in Copenhagen, Denmark. Sentri makes a line of lightweight high performance outdoor wear styled as a ‘hoodie’ specially designed by Williamson, and incorporating technical fabric and features.
The 4-day event featured 50 teams from more than 30 countries. Williamson was one of two students representing the USA at the University Start Up World Cup, with the other student being from Stanford University.
Williamson was also the winner of UP’s 2016 $100K Venture Competition last April.
