STARTUP – WEEKEND COs LAUNCH

Shuga trak is a success of the new “start-up culture”

L P SAM Principio Gets Series B Money

NEW HAVEN — Cancer diagnostics lab Precipio Diagnostics has attracted additional financing. The bioscience company completed a $1.8 million funding, $750gs Connecticut Innovations Inc., Ironwood Capital, Enhanced Capital and Kuzari Capital.

That quote from author Ray Bradbury likely strikes a chord with any entrepreneur on the precipice of launching a startup, and it’s one John Fitzpatrick identifies with. His startup, Applivate, released its debut offering, ShugaTrak, in late October, just shy of two years after forming.

ShugaTrak is a mobile app designed to help parents keep track of their diabetic children’s glucose levels. It has attracted the attention of the local startup community since it won New Haven’s first Startup Weekend (a weekend event that gives teams two days to pitch, develop and present a tech company in the hopes of winning investment capital and resources) in November 2011. Fitzpatrick entered that competition with merely a vague idea; drawing upon a background in

biology and the fact that his wife Sandra was diagnosed just a few years earlier with Type I diabetes, he wanted to explore the possibility of an app that could help people manage the disease.

By the end of the weekend, the blueprint for the ShugaTrak app was complete. A Bluetooth antenna that hooks into a standard glucose meter communicates with the app on the smartphone. Once a child user checks his or her blood glucose levels, it automatically sends a text message to the parent’s phone with the readings — and a little peace of mind. “It’s a constant worry,” Fitzpatrick says. “But also when a kid with diabetes gets home from school, it’s the first thing you talk about. One mom said to me that this will put diabetes in the background, so instead of, ‘What was your blood sugar?’ it will be, ‘How was school?’”

Such a task fits in with the “instant and effortless”

AMDEN — The South Central Regional Water Authority is looking to the sky.

The company is having a 4,000-panel, 1-megawatt ground-mounted solar system installed at its Hamden facility to save on utility costs, pollution and water use. The system would be one of the state’s largest.

The initiative was passed by the General Assembly earlier this year and was given final approval in October; the investment money will be channeled into three University of Connecticut campuses in Storrs, Stamford and Hartford.

T N E T N O C E

The system, being installed by Rocky Hill-based Solar City, is expected to provide more than 1.4 million kilowatt hours of energy per year, enough to power more than 120 average-sized homes.
