Early Stage Startup Funding

Wednesday, December 12th from 6:00pm to 8:00pm

John Fitzpatrick, Co-Founder and CEO of Applivate

Most startups do their first funding round with convertible debt, and that means choosing an interest rate, maturity, and conversion trigger. It also means deciding whether to include a conversion discount and a valuation cap and whether to accept investments from non-accredited investors. This class will explore these issues and offer guidance using a real-world example.


John Fitzpatrick is co-founder and CEO of Applivate, a one-year-old startup based in New Haven. Applivate empowers people to capture, store, curate, and share data about their health using mobile technology. Their first product is ShugaTrak, a smartphone app for people with diabetes. ShugaTrak captures readings from glucose meters instantly and effortlessly and sends them to loved ones and health care professionals in text messages and emails. John's training is in neuroscience research, and he spent over a decade investigating how single brain cells process information. A former Lecturer at Yale, he has a M.S. in biomedical engineering and a Ph.D. in biology, and in 2011 he passed the Level 1 Chartered Financial Analyst exam.
